When Only Extra Large Will Do

Hello.  Welcome.  I liked the colours of the Card und More moodboard and was also looking at the coffee cups in the picture.

There's probably a die somewhere but I just winged it.

I started with a scrap of a weetabix box, a tiny scrap of red and some snippets of MME patterned paper.  I cut a cup shape and used one of Memory Box Gentle Stitched Landscape die to help cut the lid and cup sleeve.

I added the lid and stamped the cup with Joy Clair coffee bean stamp from the Coffee Love set.  I stamped the sentiment from the Joy Clair Coffee Love set and edged the cup sleeve with blue die ink.  I was originally going to leave it at that but it wasn't floating my boat.

So I stuck it on a pearlised steel blue card base.

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  1. Brilliant! And how clever to cut your own cup, lid and wrap like that. Remember, mine needs a large brandy in it!
