Let's Have Coffee

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Maryann Einam our challenge hostess for the month,finishes off the month with one last challenge.

Apparently March is Caffeine awareness month, so for our challenge this week create a coffee themed card.

I have been having fun this month playing with Lawn Fawn's Magic Iris die set, so I decided to pull it out again to make another card. This time around I used it on it's own without either of the add-on dies. 

I die cut all the parts for the Magic Iris from white cardstock and then used Distress Oxide inks in Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry.

I used some patterned paper from Doodlebug Design Inc for the coffee cup paper on the top of the Magic Iris.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

I used Honey Bee Stamps Coffee Break die set to create the coffee cup that is revealed when the magic iris is fully opened. I added a face from Lawn Fawn's Reveal Wheel Circle Sentiments to the coffee cup. 

The "Latte Love" sentiment above the cup is from Hero Arts August 2018 My Monthly Hero Kit.

I added the "Let's Have Coffee" and coffee beans to the centre of the magic iris when it is closed. These are both from a Honey Bee Stamps Perfect Blend stamp set.

Here is a quick look at my card showing the Magic Iris closed, partially open and then fully open.

For the inside of my card I added a coffee themed sentiment which is from La La Land Crafts Coffee Mug Marci stamp set which was part of the July 2019 kit.

I added five more die cut coffee cups in the colors used on the designer paper on the front of the card.
