Today I've combined my weekly Whimsy Stamps DT card with my forthcoming Challenge #105 card.
For my card I've chosen the cute stamp set called 'Espresso-ly Great' by Krista Heij-Barber. I love my coffee so this was perfect me, and I've tried to keep it simple. I used my pencils and a tad of glitter to enhance this little chap. Hope you like it, and it inspires you to have a go and enter our challenge.

Here's What I Did
I completely covered an 5" x 6¼" card blank with my patterned paper. I die cut a dark brown mat and smaller one from Kraft card.
The coffee mug, heat swirls, and sentiments were stamped directly onto the Kraft card mat. The mug was stamped again onto more Kraft card, coloured in using with pencils and cut out. The word 'Coffee' and the heat swirls were coloured in, then the mat was adhered to the dark brown mat.
Glitter was added to the heat swirls and the cream on the cut out mug. The finished mug was added over the top of the image previously stamped on the Kraft topper using foam pads. The completed topper was attached to the card front using more foam pads.
Brown enamel dots in decreasing sizes were added to the card front to complete the card.
