Enjoy Life and Coffee

Okay, here's one last card for the week and it's an easy one.  It's not "clean and simple", but it was simple to make -- just layered die cuts, a stamped sentiment, designer paper, and a bit of ribbon.  It's another card to include in the batch for my friend.  I do think it would be cute with a Starbucks gift card enclosed.




I'm pretty excited that I used ribbon again.  I'm like the little bird pecking away at the mountain.

The CUTplorations Coffee Cup Silhouette die is on loan from my friend, Nancy.  Thanks, Nancy!  I was only going to cut a couple to have on hand before she came back to reclaim the die, but the card just sort of made itself once the die was cut.  The designer paper is old, old, old from Stampin' Up!, and the sentiment is from Power Poppy's "Short Stacks" set.  I'll sum it all up in the recipe below.

Take care of yourself, stay well, and have a happy day!



Stamps:  Power Poppy "Short Stacks" sentiment  Paper:  Shimmery Ivory, Ruby Red, retired Stampin' Up! designer paper  Ink:  Ruby Red  Accessories:  Ribbon, CUTplorations Coffee Cup Silhouette, Taylored Expressions Stitched Rectangle Stacklets, Paper Smooches Hearts, Scotch brand foam mounting tape

Love this, Leslie! I feel a CASE coming on! It is so great that you often use your supplies from the past and it reminds me how wonderful they look on cards. You inspire me to do the same. Now, if only I hadn't given away that pretty DSP.

Oh my I love your card. Coffee cards are so 'in' right now. I too love that bit of ribbon, it works perfectly. The paper choice you used for the die cut coffee mug makes this fun. I too have some of this paper. And I agree a Starbucks gift card would be perfect. A nice fun card to have on hand, your friend will love this! Enjoy the weekend.

That is one fantastic die...Great card Leslie. This is why we never throw stuff away. Old or not, the paper works great with all the other elements on your card. Cheers.

I would say that is perfect for a coffee gift card :) I like the paper you chose to cut it out with too and for the background, cute ribbon to go with it too. I know what you mean about just pecking away at our supplies.

Your coffee-ish design is so full of life and happiness, Leslie! I can smell the brew all the way in Florida! And those papers are pure happiness - especially the dots perfect aligned in your frame. Wonderful card! hugs, de
