Time for another The Three Amigos post in the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog.

Hello everyone!

Today I bring you a holiday cup with what could be coffee inside… or not. Have you noticed a suspicious activity of creatures outside this cup?




This means that there might be some sort of secret life inside the cup… If Sir David Attenborough was here today, he would be hiding behind some leaves, describing the scene in his soft voice :). I’m always amazed by the ones who are passionate for their profession.

Now that I have (hopefully) aroused your curiosity, let’s sneak inside the cup to meet the one and only coffee loving deer… and he better drink it fast, because it’s just starting to snow!




To make this card I used HA Coffee Cup Stamp + Die Combo, Winter Scene Stamp + Die Combo, Merry & Bright Tag Set by Lia, Mama Elephant Arctic Penguins, Create a Smile Double Stitched Rectangles Cool Cuts and SSS Falling Snow Stencil.

I partially die cut the cup, scoring the top line so it could be easier to open and close. The bear at the bottom right is acting as a lock; it has a little flap in the back that will slide under the kraft cardstock, allowing the cup to be closed. The inside scene is also a shaker.

Stay happy and creative.

I’m entering this card into three challenges:

The Heart Desires Challenge #6 – inspired by some of the colors, creatures and a very loose take on the sketch.




Hero Arts Holiday Cardmaking Challenge




Flickr Love group November Challenge – The theme is SNOW in its many interpretations… just check it out.


Thank you for stopping by.
