Love Your Mug

Hi everyone! I knew as soon as I saw this die (658107 Sizzix Bigz L Die - Mug, Tall )  I knew it was going to be a favorite in my die stash. This die is from Rachael Bright. I added stamped and die cut accents with the 658206 Sizzix Framelits Die Set 8PK w/Stamps - Birthday & Frames set from Stephanie Barnard.

die cutting
Score and fold a piece on cardstock that fits over die for your card base. Place the fold just below the cutting edge of the mug die and cut.

Trim a smidge off the base of the card so the card with stand straight.

Die cut patterned papers.

After die cutting, sponge edges with brown ink and decorate. I used a marker and white gel pen to create some shadows and highlights.
