I started on the background. I die cut a white piece of cardstock with the Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX. I didn't want to leave it plain white, so I took a stencil from Altenew (Halftone Stencil) and blended Iced Spruce onto the paper. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed it with Clear Gloss embossing powder from Wow.
I went over to my die cutting. I die cut all the elements from Ballet Slippers cardstock and Peacock cardstock. I used regular brown and white cardstock for the tea and cream. I assembled the elements. I added some White Neon Amplify from Tsukineko to the cream and hit it with my heat tool. The white starts to puff and it looks like actual cream. I added some glitter to the hearts on the mugs, with the Clear Sparkle Pen from Spectrum Noir and then added Glossy Accents to them.
For the tea bag, I used a piece of twine that I adhered to the label of the tea bag and the other end I tucked under the tea.
A hug in a mug!
