Good morning friends : ) Today I have a card that I made for a real coffee LOVER! in my life who celebrated her birthday this week. She loves this color combo and she loves coffee and I love her so it is a perfect fit! : )
I CASED myself! with this card. I had entered my original design (see it HERE) in a MIM challenge back in March of this year. I was (happily) CASED by the gal who ended up winning the prize that week! (See Becky's card HERE) Her card was SOooooo! much better than mine in every way so I CASED her back heehee and here you have it!
Here is a peek at the inside of the card.
|It is not really dirty IRL - it is actually a soft pretty pink. The shadows made it rough to photograph|
All of these cards were made using Betsy Veldman's nifty DIY Cover Plate challenge. You can see her tutorial HERE if you'd like to try this technique yourself. I cut 10 coffee cups from my soft pink card face and attached it to my white card base. I then stamped the coordinating coffee cup stamp inside each opening. Next I dolled the coffee cup up with the little hand saver sleeve included in this, amazingly inexpensive $5, stamp set. : ).
I really enjoyed this challenge and was not happy with my original card so I've been wanting to re-try it. I'm so glad I did because I like this card much better.
We woke up to the light covering of snow from yesterday's storm but luckily it should melt today! We are not quite ready for the snow to come and stay! : )
I hope you have a wonderful day.
