Coffee Cup Shaped Card

Hi, everyone!  I made a shaped card!  I won this cute Coffee Cup Shaped Card template from Gail at I Like Paper (thank you!) during a recent blog hop for The Cutting Cafe and decided to give it a try.

I've never used an SVG or shape template file before so I wasn't sure what to expect.  I don't have an electronic cutting machine, but this template came with PDFs so I printed and fussy-cut.  It turned out different than it was supposed to, but I like it!

I was inspired to add the tiny tag and twine by Gail's card here.  I went with this colour combo for more of a masculine vibe, although I think it would work well for either gender.  This is a top-folding card that is slightly smaller than A2 size.
