Here's my card for this month's Paper Smooches warm and cozy themed challenge. I used coffee (warm) and plaid (cozy) along with the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for my design.
Paper Smooches to make my focal image. The cup's pieces were lightly inked with a brown distress ink for warmth, then assembled inside the die's frame. For the backdrop, I placed a piece of a white doily along the edge of a kraft card base, then ran a strip of plaid washi tape across the card over the doily. After setting the cup in place using foam tape, I tucked a contrasting red cardstock circle underneath its right edge. I added a large kraft enamel dot over the cup and circle to complete the focal image cluster. The "grande hugs" sentiment from the Winter Sampler set was stamped to the left of the cup, just beneath the plaid tape.
