Guest Designer at Merry Monday! Create a Christmas Card with your Favorite Warm Beverage

I'm excited to be the Guest Designer over at Merry Monday this week! I won the first challenge of 2016 (white-on-white) with my snowflake card here. So, the Merry Makers invited me to create an inspiration card for Deanne's fun challenge this week to feature your favorite warm beverage on a Christmas card.

No question, I had to make a Starbuck's Holiday Spice Flat White! I sipped enough of them while I was in Arizona for the holidays - so yummy with the spices and perfect amount of foam!! Most of my beverage purchases are TO-GO so that's what I made for my card. 

Paper - Basic Grey Juniper 6x6 pad ("wallpaper" and "countertop"); Bazzill (cup); 
Neenah Solar White; Authentique Tidings Two from their Christmas Essentials 12x12 pad (cup cozy)
Stamps: Hero Arts - Hand Drawn Snowflakes Bold Print (on cup); Joyful Tidings Tag Set by Lia (sentiment)
Inks: Hero Arts - Unicorn White; Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Festive Berries & Pumice Stone
Embossing Powder: Ranger Clear; Embossing Folder: Tim Holtz Texture Fades - Quilted (used on the cup cozy)
Silhouette Online files: Coffee to Go Design ID #92316 and Hot Cocoa Design ID #52762 (steam) 
Die: Spellbinders - set unknown (can't find the packaging)

Be sure to head over to Merry Monday for all the inspiration from their fabulous Design Team! Thanks again to the Merry Makers for inviting me to guest design and thanks to Deanne for a delightful challenge. I hope you can join us this week or any time at Merry Monday where it's all about getting our Christmas cards finished, long before the Christmas rush arrives!!

Thanks for stopping!
