Fortunately, the Simon Says card kit for October was coffee themed and it was the perfect oppurtunity to make a coffee themed card.
Here is my card —
I started this card with a standard size card with the fold on top from some Dark Chocolate card stock from Simon Says Stamp. To make the border, I cut 1/8 inch strips of patterned paper from Basic Grey’s Grand Bazaar 6×6 paper pad. I also inked a scrap piece of paper with versamark and embossed it with gold embossing powder from American Crafts. From the embossed paper, I cut more 1/8 inch strips for the border. I attached the strips on each edge of the card base to make the border frame.
For the focal image, I stamped the coffee mug from the What’s Brewing set from Simon Says Stamp in Versafine Onyx black ink on the yellow patterned paper from Basic Grey’s Grand Bazaar collection. I colored the small part of the coffee with a brown marker and also colored the inside of the mug with a yellow marker. I stamped the label “Java Nice Day” for the front of the mug. For the steam coming from the coffee, I heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder.
For the sentiment, I used the Latte Thanks sentiment and stamped it with VersaMark and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.
That’s it for this card. Be sure to check out Chaitali’s blog for all the details for the blog hop! Happy National Day of Coffee!
