You Warm My Heart Coffee Card

Hopefully by the time you're reading this post, you've already had at least one of your favorite coffee drink.  For me, it's among the first things I do each morning, and is an essential part of  my attempts at feeling "normal" or awake each day.  And now that I bought an espresso machine and everything I need to make my vanilla spiced lattes at home, I can have more than one on any day I choose.  That makes me VERY happy!
This card was made using a kraft card base and I added a strip of Echo Park patterned paper down the middle.  I added some Natural Burlap String and rusty jingle bells, and I added a kraft tag that's cut using Paper Sweeties adorable tag die called For You Sweet Cuts and the sentiment is also Paper Sweeties, and is from their You Warm My Heart stamp set.  The coffee cups are from a cute die-cut set called Little Bits - Coffee To Go by Taylored Expressions.
As you can see, I also added a wooden button that's tied with Red Burlap String.  I used the Little Bits Coffee To Go coffee cups, and topped the one with a tiny Papertrey Ink die-cut red glittered heart.  I used a small piece of corrugated cardboard, and all the patterned papers are from Echo Park Season's Greetings.

Here's the hop information:
