This was a fun card to make!! I, myself, LOVE coffee but have been known to indulge in a latte from time to time! I combined a bunch of Lawn Fawn products on my card today, so let's take a look!!
The main focus of the card is the adorable mugs from the Thanks A Latte Stamp Set. But to jazz them up a bit, I did some simple masking and stamped the beautiful floral image from the Simply Celebrate Stamp Set. This gave the mugs such a great pattern!! I used some of the lightest shades of my Tombow Dual Brush Pens for the colouring.
I added some glitter to flowers, leaves and also the "whipped cream" on the smaller mug using the Clear Wink of Stella Pen. For the "froth" stamp on the coffee, I used a slow drying brown ink and added clear embossing powder. I love the shine and dimension it gives!!
After the images were coloured, I used the co-ordinating dies to cut them out. I cut a circle out of Strathmore Mixed Media paper (the same paper I used for the mugs) with a circle die. Using the same pink marker as I used for the large flowers, I did a bit of ink smooshing onto the circle. I scribbled the marker onto a plastic sandwich bag, spritzed with water and pressed it onto the die cut. To add a bit more flair, I layered the smooshed circle onto a Fancy Scalloped Circle Stackables (the largest one)which was cut out of plain white cardstock.
Before adhering my focal piece, I decided to use an embossing folder on my kraft card base. This is the Diagonal Stripe Embossing Folder from Taylored Expressions and it is awesome!!
The sentiment comes from the Thanks a Latte set and was stamped onto a banner. Of course, I just had to add the smiling heart!! A few clear sequins and this card was done!!
I love the way this turned out and I hope you do too! Even though this may be on the feminine side, I gave it to my husband yesterday :)
