This card uses Pure Luxury White for the adorable snowman image and the new Cranberry Tart for the base. Background DP is from the Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly pack, isn't that cute like a festive front yard?? I cut the Copic colored snowman out and made a sloping bank of snow using a rotary cutter to make a curvy cut and running a black marker along the edge to match the line art snowman. Then I made a popped up little "thought balloon" for his greeting (because only Frosty can talk, you know!) made from a Petite Scalloped Oval Nestabilitie, an oval and Cropodile punch! I loved the scene just the way it was, so decided not to add any more to it.But I had to make a little coffee sleeve with another sheet from the pack so I could use the little coffee cup from the set! TIP: if you save a cardboard sleeve from a coffee purchase, you can easily wrap it with your DP without needing to measure or make a template by putting Scor-Tape along each side and then pressing to the back of your DP and cutting around it. This DP has little cups and snowmen on it anyway, then I made a little medallion by masking the cup and stamping this fun "Love" word background (also from the set!) over it, then die cut with my Classic and Scalloped Circle Nestabilities. Be sure to attach the medallion with Scor-Tape as well, to keep it from popping off. Now you or your recipient will have a cute coffee wrap they can use all season! Deliver the hot drink with the card or fill the empty cup with candy!
