Today I used the 3D cable knit embossing folder from Stampin Up to make a card front. I absolutely love how deep and realistic looking the embossing is from this folder. Once again it was too pretty to cover up and put in the background, so I decided to make it the focal point and just add some cute coffee “buttons” so that the whole card front looks like a cable knit sweater. Indeed I have a sweater with buttons that looks much like this (minus the sentiment, of course).
I thought I was finished making cards for this blog hop, but wouldn’t you know………..another idea popped into my head and just wouldn’t leave. Mercifully, the card came together much as it looked in my head with no real hitches.
I started thinking about a coffee card.. card (?) for three reasons. First of all I am going on a cruise and was in the process of pre-ordering a coffee card so I would not have to drink the swill that they offer in most ship buffets. Secondly I was thinking about turning several of the coffee cards I have made into gift card holders just to use them up sometime in my lifetime. And finally, I had just gotten the Flip Up dies from Lawn Fawn’s latest release and wanted to take them for a test drive.
It took three photographs to show all the ways this card works. Take a look:
