25 Days of Christmas Cards: Day 14, Cup of Cheer

Good morning!

Here today with day 14 of 25 Days of Christmas cards. For this card, I used Verve's "Coffee Helps" Stamp set. I really wanted to use this sentiment on a Christmas card this year. I just think it's perfect for coffee lovers! Makes me think of warm cozy cafes on cold days! Anyhow, the card layout was designed around the sentiment, which as you can see, is rather large. I stamped four of the latte cups in black ink and then colored them in with copic markers before cutting the out with the coordinating die cut. I then layered the cups on two different pattern papers cut into four squares.
The card base is a standard size card from Neenah Solar White 80lb. I cut another layer of white card stock slightly smaller than the card front and then embossed it with the snowflakes embossing folder. Then I layered the other elements of the card as shown. Before I added the sentiment, I inked the edges in Festive Berries distress ink. I added some silver ribbon around the bottom for a final touch.

Have a great day and I will see you all again tomorrow!
