You Can Do It!

Good morning, Jess here!  Christmas is in a few days and as usual, I have procrastinated and pushed way too many things until the last minute…yes I admit, I have made well over 125 Christmas cards this year and have only gotten around to mailing 5…I’m ashamed. 😦 So as I’m spending more and more nights up late wrapping presents, baking cookies, or doing one million other holiday-related tasks I’m relying on a steady stream of caffeine to keep me alert.  Well alert might not be the best word…awake but not necessarily alert. 😉  Anyway, I thought I’d make myself a motivational card from my cup of coffee…

I LOVE that sentiment (and not only when I’m exhausted and sleep-deprived)!  I definitely had polka dots on my mind when I designed this card!  I inked the Polka Dot Cling Background stamp with a layer of versamark and then a layer of Caviar Hybrid ink and then stamped it onto a piece of teal cardstock.  I used the layer of versamark so that I could heat-emboss the dots with clear embossing powder for a little shine.  I die cut the teal cardstock with a scalloped edge and then mounted it onto a black card base.

Next I stamped the tea cup from Tea Party with the same ink onto white cardstock and added the polka dot layer.  I also stamped the steam heart on vellum and heat-embossed it with a clear glitter powder.  I fussy cut the the cup and the steam and adhered them together.  Finally I stamped the sentiment from the Caffeine Crush sentiment set onto a vellum banner and attached it over the cup.

As I start working on my next batch of Christmas cookies I’ll drink more coffee and think of this card! 😉  I hope all of your last-minute holiday preparations go smoothly and are filled with caffeine!  Just remember, you can do it!

Thanks so much for visiting and have a fabulous week!

    I confess, I procrastinated too and had such a dreadful last minute ruse => I’m starting our Christmas cards NOW, so that I will be better prepared 🙂
