Anything is possible; but first, coffee! I really do need to start every day with at least 1 cup of coffee. Maybe it’s habit, maybe it’s just my routine, but I really do love coffee. After I’ve had my coffee, then I’m ready to tackle what’s ahead of me for the day. At least, that’s what I tell myself!
BUT FIRST, COFFEE!
I was looking through my stamps to see which ones I haven’t used lately. The Echo Park ‘But First, Coffee’ stamp set was hiding in the back, but I found it!
Besides having my favourite beverage on it, this card is also great because it’s quick & easy to make. Perfect for those ‘I need another coffee’ days *wink*
On a panel of white cardstock, stamp the sentiment in the upper left corner. I used Stampin’ Up! Berry Burst ink. Next, stamp the coffee cup image towards the bottom right corner in a soft brown ink. Use a dark brown ink to stamp a few of the coffee bean images around the cup.
On a separate piece of white cardstock, stamp the small flowers from the Penny Black Perfect Pairing stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Use your favourite medium to colour them. I used my alcohol markers. Hand cut out the image with your scissors, and attach it to the left of the cup, with foam squares or tape.
I had some retired coffee bean patterned paper in my stash, so I attach my front panel to that, with foam tape. Finally, attach your front panels to the card base.
JUST A BIT OF DIMENSION
Adding just the small flowers to the coffee cup adds just the right amount of dimension to keep this card from looking boring.
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
Not a coffee drinker? No problem – this stamp set also has a sentiment for hot chocolate, too! If you need a quick card to invite a friend for a coffee & chat, I’ve included links, where possible, below for your shopping ease!
