have a cup...

Hello friends!!  Popping in with a card that I made using the Viva La Verve week #4 sketch.  I think I will also post it to the current Simon Says Stamp challenge:  anything goes.   I seem to have a theme going with all of my cards for the Verve challenge:  kraft and red!  I think this is the fourth card I have made using those colors!   What can I say??  Kraft and red are perfect together and perfect for Christmas cards!  ETA:  Popping this little number into the Verve December Diva Dare.   This is another card I made using my Verve that I absolutely love how it turned out!  And I love those cute little coffee cups!!


Anywhoo... I recently bought this pad of Teresa Collins paper called Tinsel and Company.  The main colors are kraft, red, white, silver and gold.  So for my card I pulled out that pad of glitter paper I bought and used some of the silver glitter paper to die cut the lacey circle.  Additional circles were die cut from red and kraft cardstocks and then I layered everything.  The sentiment and little cups are from the Verve set Holiday Treats.  The cups were die cut with the coordinating die.  Aren't they cute???  The little banner is also from Verve.  I die cut it from white cardstock, stamped the sentiment and then added a second banner die cut from the silver glitter paper.  A twine bow finished things off.   Love the little touches of silver glitter paper!

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white and kraft, SU! Cherry Cobbler; PP:  Teresa Collins; Stamps:  Verve; Dies: Verve, Spellbinders and My Favorite Things; Ink:  SU! Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake; Memento Tuxedo Black

Well, I love, love, love Kraft and red, especially with all the sparkle you added with the lacey circle! Love how you paired your patterned papers on this card, too!

So sorry that I got so far behind on my visits...finally caught up by seeing all of your beautiful creations over the past week :) I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving weekend with your family!
