Oh Frap! Coffee cards

I finally had a minute to play.  I have been using leftover cuts and pieces from my stash.  I had these coffee cups lying around.  So that is where I began, then I grabbed my coffee embossing folder.  I found this sketch over at Stick it Down but I didn't want to use such sharp corners.  I thought this is a perfect place to use my Kiwi Lane templates!  Finally, I added a die cut sentiment from Stamplorations.

Here's the sketch:

A close up of the details:

I made a couple of versions.  This used the reverse of the Kiwi Lane cut.

And for the third card, I die cut a scrap and added a corrugated strip behind.
