National Coffee Day

As part of National Coffee Day, yes there is such a thing, I am participating in the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

For my submission, I created a regular A2 card but created the fold along the top versus the side.  I selected a dark brown for my card base.  Next I layered a light brown to frame a custom made background of coffee beans [from Fiskars Latte Love photopolymer stamp set] stamped in dark brown ink on a medium brown cardstock.

I used a vanilla cardstock to stamp the greeting, "thanks a latte" from the Fiskars Latte Love stamp set.  Next I stamped Newton and Cookies from the Newton's Nook, Newton's Holiday Mischief stamp set.  Newton is stamped with milk and cookies so I had to fussy cut Newton from the design before coloring with Spectrum Markers. I used foam-backed adhesives to add Newton to the card.

I stamped a coffee cup and steam from the Fiskars Latte Love stamp set.  Afterwards I fussy cut both images, I colored using Spectrum Markers.  I attached to the card with foam-backed adhesives.

Afterwards I used Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to the steam and the heart on the coffee cup as well as on Newton's collar. I finished the front of the card with a a double bow and ribbon wrapped around the top two layers of cardstock.

Moving onto the inside, I added the same light brown layer as on the front of the card.
I stamped the to-go coffee cup from Fiskars Latte Love stamp set and "You're the best" greeting from Lawn Fawn.  Finally, I used the coffee bean stamp from the front of the card  to add interest to the inside.

I hope you enjoyed my tribute to coffee today.
