I was excited to see that this week's theme is Designer's Choice! Since I am a huge Coffee fan, the choice was a pretty easy one for me! Today's card is all about Coffee and features the Stampin' Up! Perfect Blend Stamp Set as well as 2 retired stamp sets from Our Craft Lounge and Skipping Stones.
For my card, I started with a card base of Early Espresso (could it be anything else?? lol). I then dry embossed a layer of Coastal Cabana cardstock in a Tim Holtz Texture Fades "On the 'Go" Embossing Folder. I cut 2 layers of Deco Label Framelits, the larger in Early Espresso and smaller in Coastal Cabana. I stamped the Coffee & friends sentiment from the Perfect Blend set onto the bottom left of the label in Early Espresso Ink. I then stamped the To-Go cup from Perfect Blend Set 3 times on Whisper white paper and 3 times on Coordinating DSP. I fussy cut the label portion from the DSP and glued onto the white cups and then fussy cut around the white cups. Linen thread was tied around the 3 cups and they were layered on the right side of the card. The upper bottom cup was glued directly onto the card and the others were popped up with dimensionals. I cut and folded a piece of Chocolate Chip Chevron Ribbon and then stapled it to hold it's shape and adhered to the top of the card with glue dots. I ran linen thread through a Gold Basic Button and looped it several times at the back of the button and secured with glue dots and adhered to the ribbon. I then stamped a row of coffee beans from one of my vintage stamp sets onto Baked Brown Super Cardstock in Early Espresso Ink and fussy cut five of the coffee beans out and glued them down randomly.
For the inside of my card I layered in Whisper White Cardstock that had been stamped 3 times with a Coffee ring stamp in Sahara Sand. I then stamped the inside sentiment "Let's Do Coffee" in Early Espresso. I was really happy with how it turned out and I hope you like it too!
