Eileen Hull Inspiration Team November - Warmest Wishes

It's Tuesday again - and my final post for Eileen Hull's November collaboration with DCWV Paper Stacks.  Today I'm using Eileen's Mug and Spoon Die along with these beautiful papers from Cranberry Christmas Paper Stack.
I tried my best to line up the die so the sentiment printings on the paper would be close to the top of the mug.  I also cut the mug out of cream card stock and layered the paper to it to give it a little more sturdiness.  I curved the mug a bit with my fingers and placed thick foam dots in the center of the mug and thinner dots along the edges so the mug would be a bit curved off the card.  I stamped a sentiment (warmest wishes) and punched it with a word window punch, layering it over the mug with foam dots.
I love the snowy/wintery feel of these papers, I feel like I should be sitting in front of a cracking fire!
Please check out Eileen's Blog for lots more inspiration using her dies and the DCWV papers!
