Coffee Perks

Good Monday Morning!
 Back on the Dies R Us Blog again to share a new card with you!
I don't know why I never had a coffee cup die before....I ADORE COFFEE!!!  I got this cute one, Coffee On The Go by Memory Box.  My front panel measures 4 x 5 inches.  Using a Die-Namics Rectangle die I created my frame.  I lined my Coffee Cup die up all around and cut out 6.  Layering the back of the frame with White card stock.  This die even cup even comes with a little cuff to decorate your cup with.    

I added 2 additional Coffee Cups in Turquoise.  Each cup is decorated with a sweet little heart from the Homespun Heart die by Memory Box.  I also added a portion of the Heart String die by Penny Black to the top of my frame.  Sentiment by Great Impressions, Nicest Perks was stamped on Vellum in Tempting Turquoise ink and then heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.  I always heat emboss when stamping on Vellum. 
I will also be entering this card in the Challenges at:
