Warm Holiday Wishes

Day two on the  Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop:
This certainly was a lot of fun to do. I started with some corrugated cardboard from a box and added it to a card base. I also used some on the sleeve for the cup, die cut using a Sizzix Tim Holts BigZ. Behind the popped up cup, I used some cardboard from a box of K cups, and all were treated to some Distress Inks and water sploshes. The sentiment comes from Lawn Fawn, the coffee beans are from Stampabilities, and the snowflakes, well I don't remember. If anyone does, please let me know because they are such a nice collection of small snowflake dies. A tiny bow from glittery twine finishes off this card.

    1. I always like to see texture on cards, but struggle with finding ways to do it myself, Vinita. This made it easy!

  6. I’m so intrigued by the asymmetrical layering! Would never have thought to do that, but it makes your card stand out. Nice!
