Coffee Solves Everything

Good morning crafty friends~  Birgit here with you starting the day off with a nice hot cup of coffee or two, or three or more...
Today's card is quick and easy!

I started by cutting several Impression Obsession Takeout Coffee Cups out of Canson 140lb Water Color Card Stock and used Gansai Tambi Water Colors to loosely paint the cups, allowing the color to fade as I got closer to the bottom of the cups.  I painted them in rainbow colors.  Once they were dry I assembled the cups using Glossy Accents.

I cut a strip of white cardstock about 2 inches wide and used the Memory Box Eyelet Stitches to make a pretty border.  I mounted the strip to the front of the card and adhered the coffee cups in rainbow order onto the front of the card, trimming off the edges.  

I heat embossed a fun coffee sentiment under the white lace panel.

Here's a list of products I used that can be found at Dies R Us:
