Warm Hugs and Coffee Wishes

Today's card features one of Graciellie Design's newest digital stamp sets -- Stay Strong.
This set is also available in red rubber on the Unity Stamp Co. page. 

Today is Coffee Lover's Day so be sure and visit the Coffee Loving Blog  as well as my fellow Graciellie Design team members to see how they used this same digital stamp set.

To create my card I:
  • printed the coffee cup on watercolor paper, colored it with Prismacolor Pencils, and fussy cut it
    • added  glitter glue and liquid pearl dots to the whipped topping
  • embossed a piece of kraft card stock with the Wood Planks Embossing Folder (Tim Hotlz) and inked it with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink (Ranger)
  • added a strip of cream lace across the bottom of the panel and tied a burlap string bow over top
  • cut two hearts with a sizzix die and embossed them with the Mosaic embossing folder (Cuttlebug)
