Thanks a Latte

I saw this sketch last week over at CAS(E) this Sketch! and 
instantly had a few ideas.

It's rare that I use something other than white for a card base 
but lately I've been drawn to the color gray so I thought I would
try it and I have to say - I like it.

I also like how the detail on the white which was made by using the 
Zig Zag embossing folder from Stampin' Up! works with the
pattern on the dsp. 

What I would change would be the mugs. I would have layered
the dsp onto card stock and then pieced together so they would
be thicker and then place them on the card using dimensionals.

I have a few thank you cards to make so I'll try that on the next one.

all from Stampin' Up! unless noted
card stock: whisper white, smoky slate
dsp: park lane
stamp set: Hot, Hot, Hot (Fresh Squeezed Stamps)
ink: memento black
big shot: zig zag EF
embellishments: homemade enamel dots

Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!

The gray makes a great base, Susan! I've been using a lot of Crumb Cake (kraft) for bases lately! Love your coffee cups!
