Sometimes I think I will just make a quick card and get it posted in a few minutes. I don’t know who I am kidding because fast just isn’t in my wheelhouse.
Today’s card was supposed to be one of those 10 minute cards. I can tell you that I searched through my stash for a half hour just looking for the right embellishment to lift the flaps on the card. Never did find what I was looking for and know I have but these ones are ok, too. I was happy to use the little coffee cup paper clips from Doodlebug. I bought them because they were cute quite some time ago but they just never worked for what I was creating. The patterned paper is from Ciao Bella Buongiorno Italiano. I confess I had to buy a second pack of this paper before I could bring myself to cut into it. I also used some digital patterned paper that I won here in a previous Coffee Lover’s Bloghop. The flaps die is Lift the Flap from Lawn Fawn. The sentiment stamps are from Altenew and Neat and Tangled.
I enjoy taking what is not designed to be a coffee card and making it into a coffee card. A bonus is when I use a new stamp and die from my “new” drawer. An extra bonus is when the card can do double duty as both a Coffee Card and a Christmas Card. Yay!
The Santa is mad with Simon Says Stamp’s The Man, the Myth, the Legend stamp and die set. The paper is Freshly Brewed from Honey Bee. The star bucks logos reflected in Santa’s eyes is from some washi tape in my stash. I used the slit die from Lawn Fawn’s Let’s Toast to cut a slit for the coffee card behind the Santa image. Dressed up the Santa with Copic Markers, Stardust pen, Neon Amplify and Nuvo Crystal glaze.
