Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge #2 - Coffee and Hearts with Pink and Main!

It’s a new month and time for a new Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge!  This month our sponsor is Pink and Main and our theme is Coffee and Hearts!  Use at least one heart on your Coffee or Tea themed Christmas card and link up to win an awesome prize from Pink and Main!  Check out all the details over on the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge Blog here

And here’s how I was inspired:

I used that great cup die from Stamp Simply and cut it from Copic friendly paper and stamped that adorable llama from the Pink and Main Llamas stamp set onto it.  Since this particular llama set is not a Christmas set (although there is an adorable one in the shop here) I colored him up in some of my favorite non traditional colors and added a gift from another set. 

I created a slimline base using the fabulous Plaid Slimline Die.  I cut it twice from a pink and a lagoon cardstock and glued them together just a bit offset.  Finally I adhered the plaid die cuts to a white base cut just an 1/8 of an inch larger.  I popped the cup onto the base and added some hearts from A Jillian Vance Design and snowflakes that I’d cut previously from glitter paper.  Finally a sentiment from am old MFT holiday llama set stamped onto a fun Paper Smooches banner.  

I'm also playing along over at Double Trouble Challenge Blog!  This week it's Something, Anything and Everything!  It's everything goes with a twist of Anything But An A2!  And if you play along with a previous partner, you get an extra chance to win a random prize!  Check it out!

Now head on over to the blog to see what everyone created for you today, gather some inspiration and play along!  And good luck!  Thanks for stopping!

I luv llamas almost as much as you, and that's a lot, adorable slimline and like that you used two colors layered for the plaid background and loved the way you pulled in a cup with the steam hearts, so creative and fun. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble.
