Love You More Than Coffee

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Karen Aicken our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Make your project reflect love or appreciation. Make a Valentine, Anniversary, Thinking of You or card showing support. 

My daughter came home recently with a Starbucks "Valentine's" Gift Card, she knew I was after some pretty coffee gift cards to use with my new Karen Burniston Coffee Cup Pop Up Card die. Seeing that Valentine's Day is only a few weeks away I figured I better make a card so I could use it :). As the gift card was flowery and bright, I wanted to replicate that in my card.

I created the coffee mug using colors found in the designer paper used on the base. The striped paper also included colors in the designer paper so I added that to the card as well for some extra interest. I added a sentiment which is from Riley and Company. 

Seeing it was a Valentine themed card I added a few hearts to the coffee mug; napkin and sentiment. The hearts are from the heart border included in the Cake Trims die set.

Here is an overhead photo of my card, so you can see the whole card at once.

For the front of the card I added another coffee mug and used a few of the sentiments included in the Honey Bee Stamps Perfect Blend stamp set.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
