Oh So Merry Pugmas

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing a card I created for the 2020 Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  The hop started on Friday 6th November and goes until Friday 13th November. I almost missed this hop this time around, I missed the info about it. It wasn't until I was checking out a friends on Friday that I discovered it was on. So I created a card yesterday.

As you can see, I have created a Christmas themed Slimline card. To create the Slimline base card I used Honey Bee Stamps Hexi Slimline Coverplate Top and Hexi Slimline Coverplate Base dies. I die cut the coverplate from paper bag cardstock and then layered this onto a top folding dark brown Slimline card that measures 3 1/2" x 8 1/2".

I used Tonic Studios Coffee Mug Shaker Creator die set to create the two mugs on my card. This die set can make shaker cards, but I decided to just use the main die to die cut solid mugs.

To decorate the mugs I used a Whimsy Stamps/Simon Says Stamp Collaboration stamps set which was part of STAMPtember 2020. As my daughter owns a pug, I just had to purchase this stamp set.

I added the Mama Elephant "Oh So Merry" sentiment to the left side of the card. I white embossed the "Pugmas" sentiment which is part of a sentiment included in the stamp set.

I had planned when I started making this to keep it simple ... but I just couldn't! So I created a pop up card on the inside. I die cut the Honey Bee Stamps Hexi Slimline dies that I used on the front to decorate the edges on the inside. After die cutting and layering, I cut the panel down the middle and adhered that to the edges.

I used Karen Burniston's Mini Pops Pop-up die set to create the pop up elements. I used the standard pop-up for the centre of the card and then used one of the other pop-up dies to add the pugs on either side of the centre pop-up.

I used Lawn Fawn's Oliver's ABCs die set to create the sentiment "Brewing Up" also the back of the card.

I used a sentiment from an older pug themed stamp set, to add a sentiment to the bottom portion of the card. This was layered using an older Spellbinders Mega Ovals and Mega Scalloped Ovals die set.
