Pretty Mug Pop 'n Cut Card

Wow - it's hard to believe this is the last day of 2013.  I'd like to take a moment and wish each and every one of you a wonderful New Year.

My card share today is one I made and sent to my Mom when I was visiting Arizona last month. I like to send her 'Happy Mail', and whenever I have a new die I usually send her the first card I make with it.

I loved this paper, not just because I ADORE the colours, but it has sparkly embossed areas too. I fussy cut one of the blooms from a scrap of the same paper and popped it up over the sheer flower embellishment.

I haven't had much time to play with this 'Mug & Heart' Pop 'n Cut insert - but I love it and am looking forward to making more with it. I have loads of tea and coffee themed stamps that will work with the mug, but for this one I opted for a simple sentiment.

I added a die cut swirly heart to mimic steam coming from the mug, and fussy cut the green border strip from a piece of patterned paper.

(Remember you can always see my Sizzix Flip-it, Pop N Cut and Accordion Flip cards by looking on the right side of my blog under LABELS then scrolling down to the 'S' section.)
