But First Coffee Card

October 20, 2018

Hello everyone!  Daisie here with a fun coffee loving card using the Mug Life stamp set.  This card was created for the Sparkly Inks Card Drive going on in the month of October.  I used today’s sketch for inspiration.

First, I started by creating my card base.  The measurement is 4.5×5.5 inches.  I am not a cardmaker so I had no clue what size it should be.  Next I added a black mat to the base.  Then came the stamping!   The different sayings from the Mug Life stamp set were perfect to create the background.  I popped this part of the card up on some foam adhesive for a more dimentional card.

I used a cut file from SpiegelMom Scraps and some puffy alpha stickers from PinkFresh to create my title.  The holographic flower sequins are from the Metallic Mess sequin mix from SpiegelMom Scraps.  Heidi Swapp Color Shine in gold was great for a subtle detail that didn’t detract from the background.  To finish the card, I added the greeting inside the card.  The coffee cup needed some detail so I colored it in with a gold pen, added more mist drops, and another sequin for a fun surprise.

Then I created an envelope by tracing an envelope I already had.  The Death Before Decaf stamp on the flap is a perfect addition to jazz up the envelope for those coffee lovers!
