Coffee Lovers Fall/Winter 2022: Choose JOY Holiday Card

The Coffee Lovers Community is having its Fall/Winter 2022 event and I thought I would jump in on the fun! Using mostly Distress Oxide in Salvaged Patina and Flamingo Pink with the Dots Stencil, I created a holiday card with a whimsy touch!

**I receive products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and Kraft n Creativity for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and by doing so I can share what I personally love to use.**

Choose JOY Holiday Card Panel

Cut a 3.75 x 5-inch white card panel and stencil the Dots Stencil for a dotted background with Distress Oxide Ink in Salvaged Patina. Let dry. On the upper left corner and lower right corner, add a combination of  Adhesive Dots Mini and Micro. Cover with teal glitter, press to secure, and tap off excess. 

With the 4 x 5.25-inch pink cardstock, ink its edges with Distress Oxide Ink in Kitsch Flamingo. Adhere the panels together with the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong adhesive.

Embellish the Mug

Die-cut the mug, its insert, candy cane, its insert, and marshmallow shapes from white cardstock. Ink and shade the mug with Distress Oxide Ink in Salvaged Patina. The white cardstock was inked with Distress Oxide Ink in Kitsch Flamingo, and Frayed Burlap before die-cutting the candy cane and mug insert, respectively.

Place the 3D Foam Snowflake onto the mug. Remove the top liner, cover with teal glitter, press to secure, and tap off the excess. So pretty!

Die-cut marshmallows in a combination of white cardstock, vellum, and 3D Foam Creative Sheets. Adhere the vellum shape to the top of the white cardstock shape. Cover white glitter on top of the foam shape, using the same glitter steps as the 3D Snowflake.

Assemble the mug pieces, and place the assembled mug on the card panel with a combination of the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong adhesive and the Dual Tip Glue Pen (for candy cane and mug handle).

Choose JOY Everyday Sentiment

Stamp the sentiment on pink cardstock with black ink. Cut it into a dual ribbon tail strip, and ink the edges with Distress Oxide Ink in Kitsch Flamingo. Then secure it on the card front with 3D Foam Strips.

I had such a wonderful time playing with this new die set inspired by all the items I had in my stash. What a fun start to my holiday cardmaking! Hope you enjoyed my process. Wanna join in? Click: Coffee Lovers Fall/Winter 2022 Event!
