Holiday Coffee Lovers challenge, part 2

Hi everyone!  I have another coffee themed holiday card to share for the Holiday Coffee Lovers challenge!
***To see my first card and enter my blog candy giveaway, click to this blog post.***
I have so many coffee themed stamp sets, I just had to spread the love.  This one is by Reverse Confetti called Be A Barista!
 
I used my favorite Layered Poinsettia dies and created a Polaroid frame die cutting a square inside a rectangle (say that 3 times fast!).  My paper had horizontal stripes and I wanted them slanted, so I cut them on an angle.  It kinda uses most of the paper, but it was worth it!  Below is a visual.
I die cut the "merry" and adhered a piece of silver mirrored cardstock behind it.  I used the pierced rectangles die for the border on the white panel and added some scored lines along the inside.
**The main link list for other participants (and where you can link your OWN project if you want to join) can be found on the blog of the fabulous event hostess:
