Ok really, this is my last card. My co-poster (who is too crazy busy to post much these days) pointed out that one of the Snarky Cats from STamptember is holding a coffee cup. How could I not make a card with this. Making this card also gave me an opportunity to use this coffee bean stencil which was a prize for me from Casual Fridays in a previous Coffee Lovers Bloghop! (Thanks again)
Take a look:
I thought I had made my last coffee card for this bloghop, but yesterday in the mail I received the Picket Fence’s Sponsored by Coffee. This is the only stamp set that I ordered with the bloghop in mind, but I thought it wasn’t going to show up in time.
The card turned out well and the lovely plaid from Memory Box gives the card both a festive and masculine feel. Take a look:
This might be my last card due to time constraints. I do have another idea forming in my head so you never know.
Again a product was the inspiration for my card. The trifold background on the card is provided by a die called Anja’s Gate from Marianne Designs. I had already made four different sample cards for the Scrapendipity store with everything from a forest scene to a Christmas scene using this die, so I thought why not a Coffee scene.
One of the dies slipped a bit and is misaligned. Usually this is enough to send it to the big round file, but I have some things I have to get done and so I used it anyway.
Overall, it turned out well. The back of each of the screens is wide enough to hold a coffee card, so this might become someone’s Christmas present.
