Coffee Cafe

Here’s another swap card I made  (21 of them!) for a New Annual Catalog swap.  I love the Coffee Cafe stamp set…just too fun!  Love that Designer Paper, too!



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Real Red cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On the 3-1/4 x 5 piece of Whisper White cardstock, the coffee beans were stamped in the upper right and lower left corners a few times.  It was placed on the front at a slight angle.
  • A 2 x 4 piece of Coffee Break Designer Paper was cut with a flag end, then added in the opposite angle to the front on the Whisper White layer.
  • Linen Thread was wrapped around several times and tied in the back, then the layer added to the front of the card.
  • The larger cup was stamped with Early Espresso Ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and the greeting with Real Red Ink inside.  It was cut out with the Coffee Cups Framelits.  The whipped cream was cut with the Framelit from Whisper White and placed behind the top of the cup.  Some Clear Wink of Stella was brushed over it.  It was added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • A straw was cut 1/4 x 2 from Red Glimmer Paper and placed in the cup.


That’s it!  Pretty simple for a class M&T, don’t you think?
