Loves Me Latte!!!

I *LOVE* the Like It A Latte stamp set! It is just too much fun. Try as I might, but I just keep reaching for it again and again these days. On top of that add the Liquid Applique...oh my! Heaven!!!
For this card I used the Like It A Latte set (of course!). The patterned paper is Loves Me from SU! I stamped the image on the scalloped giga punch from Marvy and stapled the ribbon on. The base of the card is whisper white, with the layers being close to cocoa and the loves me paper. I added a little bit of red embossing powder on top of the liquid applique before I heat dried it to make it 'puff'. I was trying to get the effect of crushed peppermints on the foam. I think a pink toned embossing powder would have looked a little better, but I made do with what I had. The heart on top of the cup is cut out and adhered with a pop dot.
Items used for this card:
Like It A Latte set
Giga scalloped punch
Liquid Applique
Embossing Powder
Ribbon (American crafts dotted, SU! grosgrain)
Ticket corner punch
