Christmas Sparkle Coffee Cup Card

When I think of Christmas I immediately think of all things sparkly, Christmas lights, stars, pretty packages so for today’s card I’m adding some extra sparkle to my project with the Gold Glimmer paper. This stuff is fabulous, super duper sparkly and hardly any glitter loss, plus a little bit really gives your project the wow factor.

Once again I’m using the Coffee Café bundle and the Merry Café stamp set for my card, I love how easy a card comes together with these products. I started today’s card with a card base in Cherry Cobbler measuring 14.5cm x 21cm, scored and folded at 10.5cm. I next took a strip of the black coffee cup paper from the Coffee Break DSP measuring 14.5cm x 8cm and stuck this to the card base.

Next I took the Decorative Ribbon Border punch and punched a full 12″ length of Gold Glimmer Paper, I cut this to two strips of 14.5cm and stuck it onto the card front using multipurpose adhesive sponged on the back.

I next stamped and cut out the pieces for the coffee cup and the stitched oval, including a gold glimmer coffee lid for the cup. I glued these two the stitched oval  and finished the card off by adding the gold glimmer edging to the coffee cup wrapper. These gold strips were the offcuts from using the punch and fit the wrapper perfectly and also add some extra sparkle.

I’m yet to decorate the inside of this card but I’m thinking one of the cute little coffee cups with the heart on which are on the black paper will look good in the bottom right corner.

Happy Crafting
