Happy Wednesday! Here’s a little coffee to help you through the rest of the week. I am not a coffee drinker but have fallen in love with the Coffee Cafe Bundle and this adorable little pun…..You Mocha Me Crazy!!!
So to be honest, since I’m not a coffee drinker, I looked at this Suite and thought that it was cute but not for me. Then I take a lot of customers talking about it and saying how they loved it so I had to get on board. I LOVE IT!!! See here’s the thing, I don’t drink coffee but everyone I know does…..and after all I make cards for them and not myself! 🙂
I started with a Pear Pizzazz card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) to stamp on. Then I just placed a piece of the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper (1″ x 5-1/4″) at the time. I didn’t adhere it just yet….in case I messed up my stamping. Using the designer paper as a guide, I stamped the lid and whipped topping from the Coffee Cafe Stamp Set in Basic Black Ink making sure to leave room for the straw. Then I stamped the cup and the straw.
I did it this way so that my spacing worked and everything fit. If I had stamped the cup first and added all the extras on top, it might be too high for the designer paper. When stamping the straw, simply place a scrap piece of paper over the lid as a mask. The straw stripes were stamped in Pear Pizzazz.
For the coffee part, I placed scrap paper on either side of the cup and added some Early Espresso Ink with a Sponge Dauber! Now to assemble, I officially adhered the designer paper and attached it to the card base. Next, I wrapped some Black Baker’s Twine around the card and tied it into a bow. Using the little greeting from the Coffee Cafe Stamp Set, I stamped it on scrap white and punched it out with the 1/2″ Circle Punch. I added those with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and a few little Rhinestones for some bling!
This card is just super cute and ready to give to a friend for a coffee date to catch up!!!
