Here's what I created:
We have several coffee themed sets so it's hard to choose but I decided to work with the cute kitty from our Sending Hugs Stamp Set for my card today. I love this set so much because the coordinating die set cuts around the arms which allows you to add in accessories for the characters to hold. On this card, I added in the little coffee cup tucked into his arms to go with our coffee them today. For the background I created a fun blue and mint plaid pattern using our new Plaid Stencil Set. This set includes two pieces that easily line up so you can create plaid patterns in multiple colors! It's SO fun to use!
After I had the plaid background panel created, I cut it into scallop using our Frames & Flags Die Set. I also cut a stripe of white and of mint paper using the same die set and stacked them together over the plaid. I stamped the "sending smiles" sentiment from the Sending Hugs Stamp Set on the mint stripe and added some bright blue twine to finish out the card! This was so simple to make and I LOVE how it turned out!
