A Cozy Cup

A Cozy Cup

Hi stampin' friends!  I am so excited to share today's project with you.  This card is my kind of Christmas...earth tones with a pop of red...hot coffee (or tea or hot chocolate)...Christmas carols...snowflakes...warm and cozy.  Because I definitely identify as an "avid stamper", I pulled out all the stops on this one...I hope you like it, too!

Start by stamping the Buffalo Check onto a piece of Real Red cardstock using Early Espresso ink, then run through the Big Shot with the larger cup from the Coffee Cups framelits set.  Also using the coordinating framelits, cut the sleeve from a piece of Wood Textures designer series paper and the lid from a scrap of Whisper White.  The snowflakes are cut with the Blizzard framelit from vellum cardstock.

Assemble the cup pieces.  On a piece of scrap Whisper White, stamp the Sheet Music background stamp in Early Espresso ink, then punch with the 1-1/4" circle punch.  Stamp "'tis the season" in VersaMark ink onto a scrap of Early Espresso cardstock and heat emboss with white embossing powder.  Adhere punched circle and sentiment onto sleeve.

Run a piece of 4" x 5-1/4" Early Espresso cardstock through the Big Shot in the Cable Knit embossing folder.  Cut a piece of Wood Textures DSP to 2-1/2" x 4-3/4", then clip the bottom edge to flag it.  Attach to embossed Early Espresso piece.  Attach snowflakes with fine-tip glue.  Wrap a piece of white baker's twine twice around top embossed Early Espresso cardstock and secure to back.  Layer onto Crumb Cake card base.

To finish, attach coffee cup to card front with stampin' dimensionals and tie a bow onto the baker's twine with a second piece of twine.


Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to contact me if you have any questions about this project, or if you'd like help placing an order....I'm here to help!  I'll have another project to share with you on Sunday!

Until next time...happy stampin'!
