Good morning crafty friends. There's nothing better than a hot cup of coffee except a hot cup of coffee shared with a friend. Today's card is all about both!
Here's a snapshot of the products I used today:
I started by creating an A2 sized top folding card base using 110lb Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. This is such a nice heavy cardstock, just perfect for making card bases and the surface is so smooth, making ink blending easy and crisp. I stenciled on some wide stripes using black ink and added a strip of CCS Silver Glitter Paper using Score Tape Double Sided Adhesive. Be sure to check out the sale this month on all silver and gold cardstock.
I cut the coffee cups out of Pop Tones Pink Lemonade cardstock and blended a bit of distress ink to the bottom of the cups, giving the cups some interest and depth.
I used Brown Basis Cardstock for the coffee and chocolate and 80lb. Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock for the cream and assembled them using Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue . Yum! Don't these look tasty?
I stamped a simple sentiment so this card could be used for just about any occasion.
Since Gold and Silver cardstocks are on sale for the entire month of July, I made another card just like this, changing up the colors just a bit.
The cups on this card remind me of vintage jadeite. I used Limeade Pop Tones and CCS Gold Glitter Paper.
Don't forget to include a coordinating Pop Tones Envelope!
I'll be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
City Crafter Challenge ~ Two Colors (Pink & Silver)
Crop Stop ~ July Linky Party
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit
