But First, Coffee!

Another card for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. What fun to finally be able to use all of the coffee related stamps and dies I have accumulated.

I cut out the cup using a Sizzix die and ran the band through an embossing folder. Went over all with Distress inks and backed with darker paper. I popped it up over DCWV Latte stack paper that I added a tiny bit of color with Prismacolor color pencils and then Nuvo Crystal Drops. The final step was to add a pretty bow.

    1. Thank you Karen. I will pop over to see. I have purchased a lot of ribbon from the site, but not this one in particular. Guess I will have to see if that's okay :)

    1. Coffee itself tends to lean toward vintage itself with its warm brown, Vinita. Thank you for your kindness.
