Coffee for Dad

Hello lovely people,

I seem to have been very busy crafting lately as I have a few projects lined up to show you, and today's card is the one I made for my Dad's birthday.

Coffee cup birthday card using MFT coffee cup die

He and I share a love of coffee and since I had just 'acquired' this fab MFT coffee cup die, it seemed it would be rude not to use it!

I thought it would look cute tucked into my new Happy Birthday circle die...and then I realised the lettering exactly matches the lettering in the stitched banner alphabet - perfect!

I used some bean stamps to add detail to the corners of the base layer of DP, and a little coffee steam swirl.  I wanted to use a darker ink than I usually would to ink the edges and stamp the beans so really, I had to use Ground Espresso didn't I?!

  4. So loved this when I saw it pop up on FB. Fabulous coffee cup die and love that new circle sentiment die too. But what has flawed me, because I didn't realise it until reading this on your blog, is that your beans are stamped!! I thought this was part of the paper and the steam swirl too!! I was marveling at how well lined up this paper was, hehe. Beautiful stamping job hun, I utterly LOVE it and I bet your daddy will too!! Hug, Wends xoxo
