Snuggle up...

Good morning! Had your coffee or tea yet?
Today's card uses the Basic Grey Jovial pack for piecing the "his" and "hers" mugs from "Mugs and Kisses", but this layout and idea with the XOXO and sugar could be an anytime card, great for love,Valentine's or anniversaries with different prints instead of just a holiday card, it's a couple card! Keeping the layout simple really keeps the focus on the "wink" of the sentiments and impossibly close mugs! After stamping them out onto two different coordinating papers and adding some color and shading, cut them out and snip under the handle on each side. Now with that opening you can link the two like they are arm m in arm, so sweet and playful with these greetings!

Tea tags and sugar cube are popped up, base is Pure Luxury White, greetings and labels are stamped on white also and sponged with Antique Linen.
TIP: Since the mugs are slightly turned toward yyou with their handle forward rather than straight out to the side, when you stamp a label on them or add a cut one, have it go over the opposite edge (cutting off or masking the sidee) rather than centering it. This adds to the 3 dimensional look!
Have a GREAT day! Be sure you give and get some sugar! ;)
Hugs,
Melanie

Melanie,
I can't wait till my stamps arrive. I hope you don't mind, but I am scraplifting this card. I have a Christmas gift for some newlyweds that I just think this would make a perfect card for. TFS. I love this it would also be so cute for scrapbook pages.

I love cards made w/mugs or cups. Reminds me of my best childhood friend who lives so far away from me. Love this card and the sayings on the mugs.
