Paper Cup Christmas xx

Hello again everyone
Can you believe we're already into almost the 3rd week of November?? Christmas will be here soon ekkkk!
If your anything like me you just pick a day and go get everything that needs to be got and then its just the last minute things to do! Tho if your like my mum, who is been finished for weeks now lol!

Well, it is the most wonderful time of the year and that means one thing ................... RED paper cups lol! Will come on, they only come out as this time of year and do love a tasty wee hot chocolate all wrapped up in its winter coat lol!


What better than a Christmas "Java" cup card to send to a coffee lover at Christmas, especially with the Red Cup season to inspire!


Using the delish "strokeable" Recollections 12x12 Botanical Noel, I run it through my Silhouette Cameo and made the cup shape and all the elements. The paper was a great weight for the card base and all the little elements plus stunning with all the gloss and gold detail on it


Once I had all the pieces cut I gently removed them from the paper and saved the cut offs to use for other cards!


I then took my Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink and began inking all the edges of the elements, being careful not to rip the little pieces of the Botanical Noel paper


I then layered up all the my pieces as you can see above


Next I stuck down the wrapper and cup lid on to the card base. I made the wrapper slightly raised in the middle my coming down lower on the cup and sticking the edges together (holding till it set) giving the shape in the middle


Then I stuck down everything on to the card and added card candi and pearls from my stash before finishing with Ice Stickles Glitter Glue




I hope you like my wee cup and if you want to try it using a silhouette you can use the SVG file from here that I used! Again you could cut it all my hand if your a clever clogs unlike me lol!

Well I'm off, got a busy wee day ahead!
TTFN
