A Cup of Cheer and a Banner…!

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – A Cup of Cheer and a Banner…!

Oh I can be a walking stereotype can’t I…? A coffee cup, so I go for coffee/chocolate colours.

Well, who says that you always have to be off the wall with your card designs!

Sticking to simple is my rule of thumb, so I have 2 circles backing the Cup of Cheer stamp – the Vanilla measures 2-1/2″ and the Chocolate Chip measures 2-3/4″. I used my Circles Framelits for this, but you could use punches.

The banners, made with the Triple Banner Punch are fab as a little extra, and that piece of Winter Wonderland Vellum sits over a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock in the same size so that the gold detailing pops out.

With Linen Thread to finish, this I think, is a great card for ‘just because’ moments. And we all have those don’t we…!

    Wonderfull card and the colours are super together.
    The vellum looks like a piece of lace, that is what 1st came up in my mind when looking at your card before reading.
    Have a nice weekend Sam.

    Oh my fav combi colors… simply beautiful!… enough to push me to have another cup of coffee!… ☕️

  3. Sam, I just bought this Winter Wonderland Vellum paper stack and it’s gorgeous!!! I love how you used it in your card, just a small portion of it is covered, just beautiful.
    I love your famous Pootle Loops behind the pretty cup, that just finishes the card.
    Thank you for sharing.
