Coffee... My Favorite Thing
Wanted to share some cards with you made with "My Favorite Things" set called "Hot Stuff." I have several coffee and/ or tea sets, and I'm always looking for just the right one! I love this one because of the cute cups/ mugs, and the sentiments! The brown polka dot card says "Coffee and Friends" on the outside, and "The Perfect Blend" on the inside. The1 3/8" holes are punched through the DP, and then another set of holes is punched with the smaller punch (1 1/4") is punched through a layer of chocolate paper and then lined up underneath. That was tricky. The mugs are stamped directly onto the vanilla layer, which is also scalloped with scalloped scissors, and watercolored with ink from the lids of stamp pads and the aquapainter, before being attached to the chocolate card base.
Next is a double fold card. It opens UP with the main coffee image, and then it also opens DOWN, to reveal a large writing space. You could also include a coffee gift card very easily. The caramel shadow around the image is made with 4 post it notes attached around the edge of the white layer and then colored with markers. Have a great week!
