2016 Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop & MFT Wednesday Sketch 310

Well, I had a very productive weekend -- Christmas-wise.
I got the last of my shopping done. 
I wrapped most of my presents (just waiting for one more to arrive in the mail)
-- and got all of my tags made (I'll be sharing these later this week!) --
and packaged up the presents to send to my brother and his family in Montreal.
I also packaged up my gift for a crafty secret Santa exchange...
We did a little Chrstiams baking.
And I got a few cards made, too!

The card that I'm sharing today is for two challenges....


Here's my card:


I started by stamping by background using MFT's Snowflake Flurry in 
Altenew Mountain Mist.
I diecut my tag and stamped in in Altenew Espresso using MFT's Hand Lettered Holiday.
I diecut my border using my new Neat & Tangled scalloped frames.


I diecut my mug using MFT's Winter Warmth dies and stamped it in black.
I stamped the "coffee" in versamark and heat embossed it in Zing! brown 
embossing powder.
I heat embossed the snowflake (from Snowflake Flurry) in white.

Thanks for looking!
