Holly Coffee

 Hi and welcome!  I'm thrilled to be guest-designing with the Caffeinated Christmas Challenge team this month.  And our theme this month is Coffee and Green.

My card evolved over several hours.  I knew I wanted to use the leaves from the Seasonal Sketch die set and this coffee cup I coloured with Copics, but I couldn't figure out how to tie it together and add the Christmas theme.  But as I was trawling through my Christmas dies, I came across this frame and knew I could make it work.

Once I had all the components, it didn't take much to pull together.  The card base is Whip Cream and I dry embossed it with the Subtle EF.  I adhered the coffee cup and the leaves directly to the frame then popped them all up on foam tape, which looks great in real life but gave some horrible shadows in the photos!

Thanks so much for visiting.  This challenge is being sponsored by Newton's Nook and while I didn't use their products for this card, watch this space...  Just sayin'...

Products used:

Stamps:  Thanks a Latte (Lawn Fawn)
Ink:  Amalgam (Gina K Designs)
Cardstock:  Whip Cream, Black Licorice, Prickly Pear, Jelly Bean (MFT), X-Press It
Dies:  Seasonal Sketch (Tim Holtz), Holiday Frames (SSS)
Accessories:  Copics, Subtle EF (SU)
