Warm Coffee Wishes

Good morning everyone! I'm back with another coffee card I came up with for the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. This time I went CAS with a chalkboard twist:


I played around with the Hero Arts Chalkboard background stamp to make a great base for the card. It's stamped in Unicorn White ink (my favorite) and then smudged some with a paper towel. After it dried (and it took a while! I left it overnight) I came back in with the Latte Love stamp set from Lawn Fawn to heat emboss the sentiment and adorable coffee cup.


A scattering of 4mm Pretty Pink Posh sequins in clear and a quick rounding of the corners with a 1/2" corner rounder finished it off!
