I saw this awesome sketch layout over on the Reverse Confetti blog and wanted to case it. I will not be entering the challenge since I have a very limited amount of RC stamps and they are required to win, but I thought I'd have fun casing the sketch. I started with a white card base and layered on some early espresso cardstock from Stampin' UP on top. I cut an angled piece of patterned paper from the Crate Paper Notes & Things 6x6 paper pad and adhered that directly onto the card. I also cut down a small strip of white cardstock and added that between the espresso cardstock and the patterned paper just to break it up a bit and add interest. I cut a smaller rectangular panel from the same patterned paper pad and matted it using the same brown and white cardstocks and adhered it directly onto the card. I die cut the circles and the doily shape from the same cardstocks and some crumb cake from Stampin' UP using both Spellbinders and My Favorite Things dies. I glued them all together and then adhered them directly onto the card base. I stamped the mug and the flower from Paper Smooches Warm Wishes stamp set, colored them using Copic markers, fussy cut them out and popped them up off of the focal panel using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I stamped the greeting from the same stamp set, added a few espresso 4mm sequins from Pretty Pink Posh above it, and some white dashed lines around the outer edges to finish this card off! I will be giving this card to my September recipient in the Coffee Lovers card swap I participate in. I hope you like it!
