Strong coffee and friendship...

WOW! Can you believe Christmas is done? It went by just as quick as it seemed to arrive. I always feel a little sad when it's all finished and done with. I love all the pretty lights, festive decorations, and just that cozy feeling watching the snow fall silently...ahhhh. Anywho, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, I know our family sure did. Santa was very good to us all!

I borrowed my friends awesome clear art stamps by Crafty Secrets. As I have mentioned many times before, I love vintage images and these coffee one are just waaaaay too adorable. For this card I really wanted some "retro" type paper and came across this print by Basic Grey from their "Blush" collection, and it was perfect. This is a very simple design but a powerful layout none-the-less. Main images are stamped in basic black. I stamped the coffee cup in basic black onto soft sky cs, cut it out, and mounted it onto the 1 3/8" circle punch. I covered the "coffee" part in crystal effects for a slick look and popped it up with dimensionals. Added some matting and ribbon and that pretty much finished it off.

Stamps: Clear art stamps (Coffee&Tea, Crafty Secrets), CS: soft sky, close to cocoa, pretty in pink, Basic Grey pp (blush collection) and whisper white cs. Ink: Basic black. Access: crystal effects, white taffeta ribbon, brown grosgrain ribbon and prima ribbon (?), dimensionals.
