Christmas Coffee Cream

Well, I have Christmas flowers and coffee cups so I think I will share my card today with the:

Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge

The May challenge is to use flowers and coffee on a Christmas card. Using Gina K Designs Christmas ephemera flowers and Taylored Expressions stamp, stencil, die coffee cup set Hugs in a Mug, Gina K’s Simple Snowflakes stamp set for the sentiment, patterned acetate paper pad from my Michael’s and Taylored Expressions A2 Thin Frame Cutting Plate completes my card. My die cutting was off a bit for the coffee cups so will need to work on that. It’s a coffee set with fun sentiments from TE which I can appreciate even though I’m not a coffee but rather a tea drinker.

This is a definite challenge because I’m still not really sure how cohesive this design works together. Oh well! It made me put my thinking cap on for a while.

May 2nd and it’s still really chilly and below normal temperatures in Pennsylvania. For the moment it is not raining and the sun did come out from behind the clouds for a bit today. Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and be safe.

  1. Well, I think your thinking cap worked very well for this one. I like the look of the ‘off a bit’ die cutting.

  2. Those cups work just as good for tea as for coffee. (Better, cause tea is better.) This is a lovely card. I really like your patterned acetate. That’s a cool way to change up the look of your background.

  3. I’m with Gerry, your thinking cap worked well for this card. It is lovely and perfect for a warm hug type Christmas card. Can be tea or chocolate as well as coffee and those cups would work for it all.

    1. Thanks, Johanna, I just seem to have a block trying to put a coffee mug and Christmas together. It was fun to make thought.
