My latest card was created for the current AAA Cards challenge. I belong to a coffee lover's facebook group and we all exchange cards once per month. My crafty friend Helen sent me a beautiful card and in it she included the pretty red floral tag, the square and circle cut outs on my card. As soon as I saw them I knew I had to incorporate them into a card and I thought this challenge would be perfect since the shapes are geometric. To create my card I started by layering a strip of French script black and white patterned paper onto the side of my card. I then embossed a piece of white cardstock using a geometric embossing folder from Lifestyle Crafts and adhered it directly onto my card base. I then adhered the geometric paper ephemera my friend sent me to my card and added some black dashed lines for additional contrast. I stamped the sentiment from the Studio L2E stamp set onto a strip of black cardstock and heat embossed it using some Recollections snow white embossing powder. I adhered the sentiment strip directly to the bottom of my ephemera tag after adding a eyelet with my Crop-A-Dile tool. I popped the tag up off of the card using some fun foam from Hobby Lobby and added a bit of black hemp twine from American Crafts. I stamped the pretty mug from Reverse Confetti's Be A Barista stamp set onto some black cardstock and heat set it using the same white embossing powder. I then stamped the coffee portion of the stamp onto some white cardstock using Zing embossing powder in chestnut, heat set it, cut it out and adhered it to the mug. I popped the mug up off of the tag using some Stampin' UP foam dimensionals to finish this fun card off!
