Mugs with hot chocolate on the plate

Hi, Vladka is here!

Today I have another Christmas card where I combined dies from different releases:


Kraft card base: 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches (cut 5 1/2 x 11 inches, fold in half)
Additional piece of white cardstock (5 x 5 inches) and some white, green and red cardstock to cut out the die cuts

Other Supplies:

CottageCutz Dies: Listed Below
Distress Ink: Aged Mahogany, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Old Paper, Ground Espresso
Other: Scissors, Paper trimmer, Sizzix machine, Scor-buddy, vellum paper, printer, glue, spruce branch stamp

1. Let's prepare all die cuts first. I used follwong dies: Turkey on Platter (plate die cut is used), Holiday Mason Jar (greenery, poinsettia and bow), Mug with Heart (mugs) and Peppermint Latte (peppermint stick).

2. Poinsettia and peppermint stick were cut out of the red cardstock and edges were distressed a little bit with Aged Mahogany distress ink. Mugs were cut out of the kraft carstock and distressed with Ground Espresso distress ink. Greenery was cut out of the green cardstock and distressed with Forest Moss distress ink. I cut also two greenery poinsettias, which I used as poinsettia's leaves.  Plate was cut out of white cardstock and distressed with Old Paper distress ink.

3. Cut the mugs also out of brown fun foam and glue the one from kraft cardstock on it. Now, glue also both poinsettias together and glue it on the mugs together with peppermint stick. Cut also plate out of white fun foam and glue it under the paper plate.

4. Prepare kraft card base and piece of white cardstock which is slightly smaller as cardbase. With your computer, design "Smells like Christmas" sentiment and print it on the vellum paper.  Now cut the strip out of it.

4. Glue all car pieces together as shown on the photo and stamp spruce branch in all corners. Card is finished.

This is is for today. Have a nice day. And don't forget, seventh CottageCutz challenge is waiting for you. This time theme is FALL. You can linked your project here. And please, use only Scrapping Cottage dies.
