Latte to Go

Pumpkin Spice Latte is the favorite.  Don't you wish you could get one with a beautiful sleeve like what is on this Stamploration stamp?
My DIL love pumpkin spice lattes.  She had one while they were staying here two weeks ago.  So I decided to make her birthday card with an Autumn latte cup, coloring the design with Copics.  The BG paper is a scrap.  The swirl and acorns are embossed so after cutting out the Happy Birthday, I rubbed it with Versamark and embossed with clear empossing powder to match the swirl.  Then the cup looked drab so I masked off the top and bottom of the cup so I could use do clear embossing on the sleeve.  I wish you could see this IRL.  I took 20 pics but could not capture the embossed shine without glare.  Underneath the cup I put a few leaves (Spellbinder) which I had cut out and added ink to the embossed parts.
Now for the inside:
 I had to print out the word "wishing" but all the rest of the words are die cuts (you - Simon Says, a brew-tiful day - Stamploration) . Last step was to emboss a stitched border using a Die-namics Stitched Rectangle.

Thanks for looking.
