Celebrating Coffee Day w/Stamp Simply

We all love coffee, right?  Well, at Stamp Simply Clear Stamps, we LOVE coffee and we're celebrating along with our friends at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers' Blog for National (and International) Coffee Day.  What could be better?  To celebrate the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop, Stamp Simply is having a BIG SALE on ALL their coffee-related products.
My card starts with a basic black cardstock.  I attached a piece of patterned paper from the Carta Bella Happy Christmas 6x6b Paper Pad and I machine stitched the papers together.  I also used a piece of woodgrain paper from the Craft Consortium's Wood Textures 6x6 Paper Pad and I ran that through my BIGkick using a Tim Holtz Lumber Embossing Folder.
I used the coffee set called Have a Cup on Us Stamp Set for the latte cup.  I cut it using the coordinating Have a Cup on Us Dies.  Then, I used the Christmas Stockings & Mittens Stamp Set to stamp the sentiment and the mittens and I cut them using the coordinating Christmas Stockings & Mittens Dies.  The snowflake die-cut is also found in the Christmas Stockings & Mittens Dies.
I also added a length of Solid Ivory Baker's Twine to the mittens, and I ran a length of Grey Seam Binding up the right-hand side of my card and tied a pretty with bow it at the top.  There's lots of great ribbon, lace and papers at Stamp Simply in addition to all their wonderful stamps.  Be sure to stop by the Stamp Simply Blog for your chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to Stamp Simply.
Be sure to check out Stamp Simply and don't miss your chance to WIN $25 to spend at Stamp Simply.  We look forward to having you visit us soon.  Happy hopping, crafting and coffee drinking; and thanks for visiting me today.

I'm playing along here:

Can You Handle The Pressure Challenge Blog - Challenge: Anything Goes w/Optional Twist: Leaves - I didn't add any leaves.  However, I did use a Tim Holtz Lumber Embossing Folder to pressure emboss a piece of Craft Consortium woodgrain patterned paper to give this card some awesome texture.
