One Sip at a Time

Good morning!  It's Jeanne here today.  I hope you all had a great week and are looking forward to the long weekend.  One extra day to craft!  September always puts me in the mood for fall (even though technically it doesn't start for a few weeks and it was in the 90s today!) so today's card has some fall colors.
This card features the adorable Mr Snuggles die along with the Cup of Latte die and new Nested Stitched Eyelet Rectangle Set.
My card base was cut from dark brown cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at the 5 1/2 inch mark to make a top folding A2 card.  I used vanilla cardstock for the front panel and cut it to 4 x 5 1/4.  I die cut a panel from the plaid paper using the largest of the Stitched Eyelet dies and I cut a panel of the striped paper 3/4 x 5 1/4 inches.
I used a sponge dauber and distress ink to color the sides of the bear and cup.  Then I cut the "latte" and steam from the same striped paper. His eyes are colored in with a multi-liner pen.  I love that you can move Mr Snuggles arms to pose him various ways!
After I glued the striped panel to the front I distressed the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  I also distressed the edges of the plaid panel.  I used ribbon to mimic the plaid pattern on the front panel,
and I added the sentiment underneath.  The sentiment is embossed in copper on dark brown cardstock cut to 1/2 x 4 inches for the sentiment.
When all the panel elements were glued down, I adhered it to the card with foam strips.  I then added the bear and cup with foam dots.

Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you have time this long weekend to be creative!
