A funny thing happened on the way to making this card. On the weekend I attended a local Scrapbook Crop. As usual, I took away too much stuff for a one day crop. Anyway, I must have pulled a muscle in my neck loading and unloading totes full of supplies. When I got up the next morning, my neck was incredibly stiff and sore, but hey, the cardmaking must go on. I took a muscle relaxant and applied a heating pad and began crafting this card. Well, don’t you know, I fell asleep with a full cup of coffee in my hand. The coffee fell out of my hand and into my box of coffee stamps and dies. Needless to say, that was quite a mess to clean up. On the bright side, I do have a large box of authentic Coffee “scratch n sniff” crafting supplies now.
I am happy to report that no cards were injured during this card-making session, and I was happy with this one.
Inside of card:
I apologize for the poor photography.
I have made one more coffee card using the Kringle collection from Photoplay. This time I also wanted to use a “Coffee Charms” die set that I have from Karen Burniston. I finished the card off by adding a Polar Bear from Recollections who is looking up longingly at the string of coffee beverages. The sentiment is from Verve Stamps
Once again time has flown by and it is time for the first Coffee Lovers bloghop of 2019. I am always conscious of the next coffee bloghop coming up and look for new coffee stamps and patterned paper as a regular part of my craft supplies shopping. I hit the jackpot this go-round with the exquisite Buongiorno Italiano collection from Ciao Bella. It has both an elegant and a casual feel, so I think it will turn up on my cards several times this week.
I have used the Karen Burniston Coffee Cup pop-up before, but it is such a classic for giving a coffee card to someone that I had to use it again. Just using different paper makes the card look fresh. The only problem with this card is photographing it. I confess to glueing the card front and back to my dining room table for the photo. Don’t worry “no wood finish was harmed during the filming of this post”………..at least I hope not.
Here is the card inside and out:
The Altenew sentiment says, “Coffee …when your brain needs a hug”. Isn’t that so true.
