Java Merry Christmas

Hello Everyone,

I am on the Pink and Main Blog today with a fun Christmas card perfect for coffee lovers!

As Pink and Main is one of the Super Sponsors of the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, I wanted to use the coffee theme for my post today.

I started with stamping and colouring one of the coffee mugs from the Christmas Mugs stamp set along with the candy canes. I used alcohol markers and I die cut the images with the coordinating dies.

I also die cut a green glitter cardstock wreath using the Wreath base die, it looks gorgeous with all the sparkle! I used the same die to cut another wreath from heavy weight vellum to mute the background a bit behind the coffee mug.

I chose a pretty and colourful snowflake patterned paper from the Jolly paper pad, trimmed it a but smaller than an A2 sized card front and adhered it to a dark red card base. I stamped a sentiment in black on the bottom and adhered the wreath with the vellum in the middle. I added the mug in the middle using liquid glue and popped up the candy canes with 3D foam squares.

Then I added a bit of sparkle with a clear shimmer pen and used glossy accents on some parts of the images. I love the shiny raised look!

I will upload this card to the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Fall/Winter and to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

I hope you got inspired to participate in the Blog Hop and to make some coffee themed cards for the holidays. Until next time, happy crafting!
