This card is very appropriate for today because warm thoughts and cosy drinks are just what we need in this house. We have one poorly mama and one poorly boy and one little monkey bouncing with energy, so I would love someone to come over and make me a lovely soothing drink.
So if you need a quick card to send to when someone is ill or just to let them know you’re thinking of them then this card and the Hug in a Mug stamp set is perfect.
First take some Whisper white cardstock measuring 14cm x 10cm and run through the Bigshot with the Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder. Take some of the Quilted Christmas 1/4″ Ribbon and fasten across the card in a cross pattern as shown above. Mount this layer onto a card base measuring 14.5cm x 10.5cm using Fast Fuse Adhesive.
Next take the largest Stitched Shaped Oval Framelit and cut it out of Whisper White, then take the corresponding scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits and cut that out of Real Red.
Use Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the greeting and cup outline and some steam. Take the inner cup stamp and ink with garden green, stamp off once onto scrap paper and then stamp in the cup outline. Finish the stamping by stamping a Real Red heart into the middle of the cup. To add a little sparkle I coloured the cup with the Clear wink of Stella brush.
For the inside of the card I just stamped the cup image again onto Whisper White cardstock measuring 14cm x 10cm. I love how versatile the Hug in a Mug stamp set is, the comforting sentiments and cute little mugs make it a great set to pick up for all year round.
Thanks for popping by today, I’m now off to hibernate in my duvet until tomorrow.
