Merry Coffee Wishes

Today's card was created for the Holiday Coffee Lovers Bloghop. I recently picked up a few Unity Stamps on sale during Black Friday and just had to use one of them to create a fun holiday coffee card that I plan on sending to a crafty friend. I started by stamping the darling image from Hello Love onto some 110 lb cardstock from Staples and colored the skin and hair using Copic markers. I then stamped all of the clothing onto patterned papers from My Mind's Eye's The Merry Days of Christmas 6x6 paper pad and paper pieced them onto the image, shading them with Copic markers. I die cut the focal panel using a My Favorite Things pierced oval die and added some black dashed lines with a Memento tuxedo black dual tip marker to really make it pop. I layered some more patterned papers from the same MME paper pack to create my layered card base, popped the main image up using some Stampin' UP foam dimensionals, and added more dashed lines to add more interest. I stamped the Merry and Wishes from Amy R Big Christmas Wishes using Versamark onyx black and cut them out into little panels. I die cut the Coffee sentiment from Verve Stamps coffee die using more patterned paper and popped it up using foam dimensionals. To finish the card off I added a few red sequins that I picked up at my local dollar store and some clear Wink of Stella glitter pen all over the image and the lettering. I hope you like it!
