Hello, everybody! Today I'm sharing a thank-you card. I like to have a few on hand after the holidays as they always come in handy. I've been checking out some of the cute inspiration at the 2022 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and was inspired to CASE Becca Yahrling's card! She used Sizzix Thanks a Latte Empresslit (it embosses and cuts), and I've owned this product for a several years but have never used it. After seeing her card, I decided to try it!

Thanks a Latte
I noticed that Becca used a different die for the coffee-to-go cup, but I used the die that came with this set. It's a one-piece die that forms part of the embossing folder, and it only cuts the outline of the cup, which is a bit disappointing. I had to die-cut it several times in the various colours (white, kraft, red, cream) and then fussy-cut into the pieces to make it work. I also embossed the red cup in a snowflake pattern (Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow) because I noticed that Becca embossed her cup. The "thanks a latte" die is part of this Sizzix set and I like it a latte!
I don't often CASE a card this closely but it was fun, and I like how it turned out! Of course I had to add a kitty (Becca's card had a mouse)! This kitty is from Simon Says Stamp Right Meow, which I coloured with markers and added dots with a white paint pen, and then fussy-cut so I could pop it up on foam tape. Just like Becca, I added Diamond Stickles to the steam but instead of the gems for embellishments, I went with punched snowflakes in red. I was unable to include a photo of her card from Flickr, but you can click here and take a look.
