Happy Sunday! This adorable image is the inspiration for this month's Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb. To create my card I started by layering some cherry cobbler cardstock onto my white A2 card base. Then using some patterned papers from Heidi Swapp's Noel 6x6 paper pad I created a main panel that I cut down using a stitched rectangle die from Paper Roses. I popped that panel up off of the card using 3M foam tape. I stamped the adorable image and sentiment from Penny Black's Cup Of Joy mini stamp set. I colored them using my Copic markers and fussy cut the images and sentiment banner out. Using the steam images from Paper Smooches Need To Venti stamp set I stamped them onto a white stitched rectangle panel using a smaller die from Paper Roses and Versafine onyx black ink. I popped the images up using Stampin' UP's foam dimensionals and centered them on the panel under the steam. For a finishing touch I added some black gems around the panel for a little sparkle.
I was out finishing up the last of my Christmas shopping, so I snagged a Starbucks peppermint mocha latte. Now, be sure to pop on over to Debra's blog and see what fun she created for our collaboration this month! Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I wish all of you and your family's a very merry Christmas and a healthy, happy New Year!
