Crafty Coffee Weather!

Hey Crafty Friends-

The weather here in Vegas has been crazy! It went from sunny and 116 degrees to cloudy, stormy skies and 86 degrees! So since I work better under pressure of course I waited until this week to get my Berry Red Trendy Twine project done. I was so inspired by our "cold" snap I had to create a cute little card to prove my undying love for a cup of hot COFFEE! 

The base card is craft cardstock cut at 10" x 4" and folded in half. I ran it through the Big Shot using the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder and rounded the corners. The edges are inked using Tim Holtz Festive Berries Distress Ink. The coffee mug is DCWV white glitter cardstock cut at 3" from the Love You  a Latte Cricut cartridge. The heart was cut from the same cartridge in red DCWV glitter cardstock at 1.5". Brown cardstock backed the mug to create the coffee. The edges of the mug were lightly inked with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. The heart and mug were both popped up on foam dots for dimension. The sentiment "Where have you been all my life" from My Creative Time, You Had Me at Chocolate stamp set was stamped in the same Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. A double strand of Berry Red Trendy Twine was wrapped around the bottom of the card, the another double strand  wrapped around the top an tied in a double bow!

I hope you like my simple little card. It made me smile! I'll have more Trendy Twine goodness for you on Monday August 6th. Please come back and check it out!
