Take Time for a Cup of Coffee


Have a cup of Coffee?   I always begin my day with a cup of coffee. I made this card to enter in several challenges.  I began by using the sketch from Tuesday Morning sketches shown below. I stamped the cup on light tan cs with Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink and cut with Nesties Lacey circle die and then added Glossy Accents to the cup. Using a card base of the same tan cs, I added a layer of MME's Pattern paper from 6X6 pad on the upper part and Kraft CS stamped with words in Memento Espresso Truffle to the lower area. Attached these 2 sections and a Rust Grograin Ribbon to the base.  Added the image with pop up dots. Stamped some coffee beans with Memento Rich Cocoa to the upper corner and added Glossy Accents for texture. Finished with metal tabs from soda cans for some texture and a masculine touch. Stamps are all from Mark's Finest Papers "Oh, Beans" set.
