Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge - November Mid-Month Inspiration

Hello and welcome!  I have some mid-month inspiration for November's Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge.  This month the theme is "holly!"

Our sponsor this month is Topflight Stamps.  One lucky entrant will be the random winner of a prize from them!  Top picks will get to guest design!

And don't forget, this week is the Fall Winter 2022 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop so you could also enter it with your caffeinated Christmas holly card!

Here's a closer look at my card:

The holly stamp is from Visible Image called "Inked Holly," and it's available from Topflight Stamps.  I stamped it on the card front in black and then stamped it again on some watercolor card that I had smooshed with red and green Distress Inks and water.   I fussy cut it out and added to the top other holly on the card front, then added 3 large plastic gem stickers over the berries.  

The cup is from another set available from Topflight Stamps called "Cocooning" by L'Encre Et L'Image.  
I stamped it on the same watercolor card and fussy cut it.  I also fussy cut the lid that I had stamped on white card stock. I added a tiny heart on top of the stamped heart and wrote "SANTA" on the label with a black marker.  Then I added the cup to the card front.

The sentiment is from an MFT Stamps set called "Hand Lettered Holiday."  I heat embossed it in white on black card stock and then added it to the card under one side of the holly.  I added a thin strip of plaid patterned paper to the top and bottom of the sentiment for interest.  The tiny red heart was decorated with clear sparkle pen and Glossy Accents.

Here's one last look at my card:

I hope you will have a chance to play in this month's challenge.  All you need to do is create a caffeinated card that also has holly and make sure it has a Christmas theme!
