Reading some of my stamper buddy’s blogs this week (both Wendy’s Made by Wendy Bellino and Heidi’s My Little Stamping Blog!), I found out about a Coffee Lovers Card Challenge at Coffee Loving Cardmakers, so I had to go make one to enter. I didn’t think I had coffee specific stamps, and sure enough, nada. But, that didn’t mean I couldn’t find a way. There are a bunch of prizes available, so of course I needed to get creative. I found some free clipart on the internet, and printed out my designs rather than stamping them. The sentiment came to me as soon as I read the challenge, so I simply typed it and printed it in brown ink.
I framed each element with a coffee-with-cream color cardstock, and prepared an espresso bean color card. It is actually a bit more brown and not as rusty as this picture would lead you to believe. The darker brown paper with the flowers will make a nice accent. The floral paper is glued in place, and the other elements will go on top.
I do have a tiny cup stamp, so I added a couple of cups to the lower right corner.
All done with the card, I added a few coffee cups to the envelope too.
Every time I need a ‘get well’ card, I don’t have the time to make one. Now I have one ready to go! Forgive me for posting more than usual this week, but with the challenge deadline, I had to get this one in. The Scrap Dance Mystery Quilt Along will continue tomorrow!
