Winter Elegance Coffee Card

I had such fun creating a card for the Winter Coffee Lover’s Bloghop, that I decided to make 2 more cards! I’ve had trouble in the past with link up thingies if I’m trying to add multiple cards so I’m going to create 3 different blog posts. Hope that doesn’t drive anyone crazy!

For my first card, I used an Echo Park paper pad from a year or two ago, Bundled Up. Aren’t the colours gorgeous?! I just bought an older set of Spellbinders dies that matched some Nestabling I won. Remember Nestabling? If you are new to crafting, you’ve probably never seen it. It’s pearls or rhinestones shaped perfectly to fit the Spellbinders Labels dies. Buying the dies second is kind of backwards I know! I don’t know if they make it anymore. It used to be that Spellbinders was the only game in town for low-profile dies so a lot of companies matched stamps and embellishments to them. Now with so many dies on the market and stamp companies making their own dies, there’s no need for these products or they are redundant.

The focal image is from the die cut pack that matches the paper pack. But you could argue that the snowflake embellishment is the focus of the card! I took dies from MFT, Stylized Snowflakes and Layered Snowflakes, no idea which dies are which because I store them all jammed together on a magnet sheet! The blue layer was coloured with Copic markers and the silver one was coloured with a silver paint marker. The brad is also a matching embellishment.

Enjoy, Rebecca
