My good friend, Kathy Schweinfurth invited me to be her coffee date on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog . This is a new feature where the design team members invite a friend to be their ‘coffee date’. We each created cards for this special blog.
Our cards were inspired by a sketch and color combo:
Here is the card I created. I really love this pretty to go cup image and I thought the sentiment was a good fit.
Coffee Cup Image: Unity Spring To Go
Sentiment: Altenew Coffee Talk
Patterned Paper: Jen Hadfield: Heart of Home “Painted Gingham”
I started my card by stamping the image and coloring it with my Copic markers. I fussy cut it and also fussy cut an additional flower to give my card a little dimension.
Using the sketch as a guide, I cut my card pieces, including some pretty ribbon I had in my stash. I wanted to add something more to the back panel, so I stenciled some coffee rings with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide Ink. (As you can see, I’m really taking this coffee thing seriously!)
Next, I glued my pieces to my card base, except my to go cup because I needed to line up my sentiment. Using my Misti, I stamped the sentiment and then adhered the die cut circle to my card. Lastly, I used foam tape to pop up my cup.
This card will most likely be sent to a friend at work, who swears she can’t function without her caffeine.
