My Craft Spot New Release Day 4

Good morning! I am SOOOO loving the card I get to share with you today for Day 4 of the new release at My Craft Spot! Today we are sharing cards created with the new set named Think Snow! SOOOOO cute!!! I love all of the fun sentiments on this one! Here is what I made:
As soon as I saw this sentiment - I knew I wanted to use it to make a thank you card for my mom! When we moved to Wyoming, she packaged up some special tea cups, along with an assortment of teas and cocoas to keep us warm on the cold winter nights. My kids just recently enjoyed their first cup of cocoa from her when we had a bit of super cold weather. They enjoyed it SOOO much! So...I made this so they could write her a note to let her know how much they enjoyed and appreciated it!
I used my Silhouette Cameo and a file from the Silhouette Store for the mug and heart, and inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink. I attached it with pop-dots for a bit of dimension.
I hand trimmed the square with the sentiment, and also inked the edges of that.
I folded a doily in half to put under my mug - but since it still felt like it needed something, I added a couple layers of crinkle ribbon from My Craft Spot, added a bit of lace I had in my stash from Ribbon Carousel with a bit of traditional Baker's Twine, also from My Craft Spot.
I have a hard time lately making a card without jute twine - so I had to add a little bow to the top corner of the mug, with a tiny pink button from my stash. Then, finished it all off by adding some faux stitching with a white gel pen around the edges.
So glad you stopped by to visit today! Hope you are having a wonderful day - and don't forget to swing over to My Craft Spot to check out the rest of the amazing projects from the Design Team and enter today's giveaway! See you tomorrow!!!
