Happy Birthday-Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb
Hello and welcome to the February Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb! In honor of Valentine's Day Deb and I decided to use this sweet cookie image as our inspiration. Since I've already created my Valentine's cards for the month I decided to incorporate some sweet hearts into a birthday card. To create my card I started by layering a panel of early espresso cardstock from Stampin' UP onto my ivory A2 card base. I then die cut a slightly smaller panel using a Pinkfresh Studio A2 layering die and then stamped the background image using some Sahara sand ink by Stampin' UP and the Unity Stamp Company Small Details background stamp. Then using a Lawn Fawn heart die I die cut the hearts on the panel. I backed each of the hearts with some pretty pink patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Market Street 6x6 paper pad. Using my powder tool I prepared some more of the early espresso cardstock, stamped the birthday sentiment from the Verve Stamp Birthday Poppy stamp set using Versamark ink and then heat embossed it using some Ranger white detail embossing powder. I cut it down into a small sentiment strip and adhered it to the heart panel using some 3M foam tape. I then attached some soft pink/white twine from Doodlebug around the bottom of the panel and then popped the whole thing up off of the card base. To finish my card off I added a little bow using more the twine and secured it with a glue dot. I love how beautifully this turned out!
For my coffee this month I opted for some 6th Avenue Bistro from Seattle's Best Coffee in a new ceramic mug I received from my bestie this Christmas. It has a nice lid on it so I can sip away most of the morning without my coffee getting cold! Thank you for popping by and leaving a comment. I appreciate them all! Now, be sure to pop on over to Deb's blog and see what fun she created with our inspiration photo.
