Coffee & Snowman Christmas Card

Howdy Crafters ~ I am a fan of Coffee - mainly making my own Mocha or occasionally purchasing one at one of the local Coffee establishments - I have a Snowman with a Coffee Christmas card today: both, the Snowman & Coffee are my favorites at this time of year - thanks you for stopping by - have a blessed week ~ Gail ~

Recipe
White cardstock for the base
Snowflake blue patterned cardstock for mat - Spellbinders Rectangle Die
Kraft cardstock - torn for mat 2 - Cut with Spellbinders Rectangle Die then torn around the edges
Cuttlebug Machine - Memory Box "Coffee on the Go" die - Kraft/White Cardstock - Spectrum Noir Marker for highlights on coffee cup
Stamps - Let It Snow Hobby Lobby - and But First Coffee [my custom stamp I ordered from The Cutting Cafe]
Puffy White Paint
Textured Paste I made and used a stencil to make squares - CLICK HERE to see posting with the Texture Paste Recipe- after it was dried I was able to make snowball cuts and glue them to this card - there are 4 sections on this card - the larger snowflakes - while the others were added with puffy paint
Snowman Punch - Memento Markers for Coloring

  1. I love coffee and snowmen too Gail... not that we ever get snow around here, and since I don't like the cold, I'm quite sure it's the idea of snowmen that appeal to me more than the actual thing. I do love them on cards though, they always look fabulous and yours is no exception. Great job!
    Cheers,
    Beccy
