You, Me and Coffee



Hi everyone,

Today I am playing along with the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop which is being held from Saturday 18th March to Friday 25th March.


I decided to create a 'flat' card using the Cup Pop Stand Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

All the colored card is the new Elizabeth Craft Designs Soft Finish Cardstock which is now available in 36 fabulous colors. 

I used the Stitched & Fitted Rectangles die sets to create my layers and for the Dark Chocolate layer I embossed the panel using the Coffee Bean Embossing Folder and then sanded the raised areas of the coffee beans. For the cup I die cut it from Rosebud Soft Finish Cardstock and then used the Coffee Stencil to add the white trim to the top of the cup.

The Spoon is die cut using Silver Metallic Shimmer Sheetz. For the sentiment I used the speech bubble from the Rectangle Accordion Card die set and stamped the word Coffee and the coffee beans both from the Coffee & Tea Clear Stamp set.



 On the inside of my card I used the Coffee Stencil to sponge some coffee beans on the lower right hand corner of my card. I also added a sentiment using the stamps from the Coffee & Tea Clear Stamp set.
