Twofer Card Challenge #7 - Beverage - July, 2018

Hello there,
Today I am playing at the Twofer Card Challenge a first for me and the Challenge is Beverage.  I have made one Conventional and one Unconventional I hope they meet the criteria.  My first card is an Iced Coffee image, the cup base is made using the Shaving Cream technique on glossy card and then ice blocks stamped on vellum and an acetate die cut covering over the cream.  The cream on top has been dry embossed using the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder from Provo Craft and then covered with the die cut cup lid made of acetate.  I finished off with the straw, coffee beans and the die cut and stamped sentiments.

Thanks to the Twofer Design Team my cards were voted  Winners for the Unconventional Award for July.

For the second card I made a Snowglobe.  I sponged the background with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, stamped and die cut the image and made a snowdrift with a die cut.  The top of the cup is the base.  I used a Falling Snow Stencil and Embossing Paste to add snow inside the globe.  I then dry embossed the Softly Falling E/Folder on the matt. I watercoloured the Snowman and used my Gelly Roll Pen on the hat, gloves and scarf.  Finished off with the sentiments and some Snowflake Sequins.
