This is my card for Day 6 at the 2022 Coffee Lover's Fall/Winter Blog Hop.

Had seen a couple cards with Brentwood in the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and went to Jessica Lynn Original Studios to get the image... pleasant surprise, a freebie offered during the Blog Hop so you still have time to download, rcreat and add to your stock SVG fles.  Found a great sketch to display Brentwood with the Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch Challenge #583.

Brentwood is such a great image for a masculine card. Keeping that in mind I went to my stash for complementary patterned papers that Brentwood would enjoy. Cut the required rectangles for the Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch.  

Using white cardstock I copied and pasted svg Brentwood image four times and printed. Cut and colored the base layer in full, colored the full cup w/mashmallows, cup only and some of bells from each other printed image. These pieces were all fussy-cut and layered and adhered with 3D thin foam tape for dimension.  All panels were framed with a thin border of New England Ivy and then placed and adhered on card base.   

For the little embellishment in the corner of the sentiment panel I decided to use more jingle bells, with some foliage and a red bow which finished off the sketch.  Brentwood makes me happy and he looks quite pleased with his colors.  

Don't forget Thing 1 (me) is asking you to join us at Double Trouble in participation with the 2022 Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.  I'm getting the JITTERS FOR JAVA which MOCHA me crazy.  So get started... rise and GRIND, throw on a TEAshirt and sweats, grab a CUPPA your favorite and don't be LATTE.  Enjoy the CRAFTEINATING inspiration, hop along, stay GROUNDED and no ProCAFFEINATING.
