Valentine's Mug

If you don't mind a lot of putsy work, this project might be for you:-) I looked high and low for a cute mug-style card template and came across a teacup that I stretched in Microsoft Word. I used the Cricut to cut out a cupcake shape for the top and then traced the teacup and the cupcake top to cut this card out. I cut an additional piece of cardstock in red for the mug (layered over the white base) and then I cut a doilie shape using the Art Philosophy Cartridge and my Cricut. I only used a small side of it for the lacey look on the front. The sentiments & heart shape are from the December SOTM "Mad About You" and each piece was sponged with chocolate ink. I added a lot of Glitz Glitter Gel for sparkle. Thanks for looking!
Here's a close-up of the top:

  1. Very nice,
    I have not been a big fan of the "cup" cards,
    but I like what you have done.
    And I'm okay with putsy work now and again.
