My husband asked me to make a thank you card for his boss since the company redistricted and he'll be moving on to another team. I asked him what interests his boss has and he immediately responded "Well, he's always drinking coffee. We joke about it all the time!" Perfect!
I immediately thought Starbucks red cup, so I made my own using a die from MFT Stamps. I cut a watercolor panel with a die and then blended in three different blue inks to create an ombre sky. I flicked a little water over the top to look like falling snow and then used the Stitched Flourish dies from Paper Smooches to add a little texture to the background to look like it was windy. I cut a snowbank panel using a landscape die and then adhered it to my background with some double-sided tape. I adhered the whole panel to a card base with the same double-sided tape and then used my MISTI to stamp my sentiment to the left of the cup of coffee. I used foam tape to adhere the cup for a little bit of dimension. Since this is going to a man, I decided to leave off my typical sparkle and sequins. Love how it turned out!
I decided to enter this card into three challenges because it works so perfectly! First up is the Winter Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop!
Next up are the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (Let it Snow) and Wednesday Challenge with an icy inspiration mood board.
