Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #174

Good Morning and Merry Monday, we have a new challenge for you today. Lori is our hostess and she want us to Make a Christmas card with a coffee theme.

When I did my whirl wind tour of the lower mainland craft stores a few months ago I found a couple of stamps sets by taylored expressions that I have been wanting to open and play with.

I pulled out some fun cheery papers and started layering, the stamps set comes with die cuts so I had fun piecing together the coffee cup. The black twine is covering up a little boo boo, when I stamped the steam it just did not do a good impression so I pulled out the glue and twine and voila.

I popped the sentiment up and added some twine to match the papers and done.

Supplies: White  and red card stock, Design Paper - Doodlebug Design, Papertrey Ink - Signature Christmas, tailored expressions - Joe to go , twine.

Take a look at the challenge blog, the Merry Monday Design team has created some amazing cards for inspiration and we would love for you to play along.
