Baby It's Cold Outside-Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb
Hello and welcome to another Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb! This month we are celebrating Christmas in July! I recently picked up the Unity Stamp Company's Planner Girl Cold Outside stamp set from a fellow crafter on a destash thought this would be the perfect opportunity to ink it up for the first time. I stamped the image and sentiment out onto some white Copic-friendly cardstock and then die cut the image with a wonky stitch rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs. I colored the image using my alcohol markers and then wrapped some white twine and created a bow from Stampin' UP around the left side of the panel and adhered a small black button on top using a glue dot. Using some pretty patterned papers from My Mind's Eye's Oh What Fun 6x6 paper pad I layered a panel directly onto my white A2 card base, covering the entire front of the card. I popped the focal panel up off of the card using some 3M foam tape. I then die cut a fishtail banner using a Jillian Vance fishtail die and some more of the coordinating patterned paper. I cut the fishtail banner down to a small banner and adhered it directly to the focal panel. To finish my card off I added some Stickles in white blizzard to the hat, scarf, and snowflakes. This card turned out so sweet that I may have to duplicate it using different patterned papers and colors.
For my coffee selection this month I popped into the Starbucks at my local Target and got myself a tasty caramel ribbon crunch Frappuccino! Now be sure to head over to Debra's blog and see what gorgeousness she created for our Christmas in July collaboration.
