Relax And Enjoy

I have had a lot going on personally lately and was planning on bowing out of the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop but after seeing Julee's digital freebie on the Verve web site I really couldn't pass up the chance to play with it and create something fun. I will plan on giving this card to my swap buddy on this month's Coffee Lover's card swap. I started by printing the digi page out onto some Copic friendly white cardstock and die cut one of the sentiments out using an MFT pierced circle die. I added some black dashed lines around the outer edge of the circle for some additional impact and interest. I colored one of the cups using Copic markers, fussy cut it out, and edged the outer edges with a dual tip Memento marker. I adhered a panel of cherry cobbler cardstock by Stampin' UP to my white card base and then layered on some patterned paper from Authentique's Pride 6x6 paper pad for a nice patriotic color scheme. I added some more dashed lines around the edge of the patterned paper to match the die cut piece and adhered my die cut piece directly onto the card base. I popped the cup up off of the card using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals and added a tiny clear rhinestone in the center of the star on the cup as a finishing touch. I hope you like it!

Hi, Celeste!

This is absolutely adorable! Love what you did with Julee's digitals. And the way you used those patriotic papers is fabulous. :)

I have virtually nothing coffee-related in my stash. So, I was so excited to see Julee's gift.
