Christmas Coffee Card How -To Using the Best Glue Ever

Today's design team post with ScraPerfect is my 5th and last entry for the Winter Coffee Lover's Bloghop that ends today, but I will also be entering it @ the House That Stamps Built: Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge using the the Middle/Vertical row of "Christmas/Red & Green/Glitter", @ Sunny Day Crafting for "X is for Xmas" and @ ABC Christmas for "Y for Yummy". 

I started out this project cutting a top folding horizontal A2 card base from red cardstock and then trimming red and green cardstocks along with the holiday sentiment and wood grained patterned papers to fill my card front.

I then colored my Verve coffee to-go cup digi stamps using Spectrum Noir markers and accenting them with clear Wink of Stella pen before fussy cutting them out. (This is where the glitter part of the game grid comes in, but the camera just didn't capture the sparkle well at all in the pics)

 I then assembled the entire card with the help of ScraPefect's  Best Glue Ever and the No Clog Writing Cap.

I had die cut the sentiment for the inside of the card and free hand cut the one for the front. I then sponged around all the edges using Real Red ink from Stampin' Up! Foam Tape worked perfectly to pop up the wavy Happy Holidays.

Simple and sweet on the inside...

Wrapping the front focal panel with the gold threaded twine set off the wood grained cardstock and emphasizes the horizontal lines of the card, drawing the eye in to the cups.

Don't forget that adding the No Clog Writing Cap to the Best Glue Ever makes it perfect for using on both flat paper projects and anything 3D that you can imagine...and that is why I really do love and recommend this glue! Until next time, happy crafting with ScraPerfect~
