Coffee Break Friendship Greetings!

Good morning!  If you're like me you never seem to get enough sleep and you need something to get you started in the morning.  For most people they turn to coffee and while I don't drink it I love the smell and the bonding time with friends sharing a cup with a friend provides.  This month we are having a designer series paper sale (one of my favorite sales of the year) where for each time you buy 3 packages of select paper you can select a fourth for FREE.  The Coffee Break Designer Series paper is one of the packages on sale and to make things even better, between now and October 10 in honor of World Card Making Day you can save 15% of select stamp sets that coordinate with the DSP that's also on sale, how cool is that!

Today's card using both the Coffee Break Designer Series paper but the Coffee Café stamp set that is on sale which makes coordination a breeze for any of your projects.

I started with Crumb Cake cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Coffee Break DSP (before attaching the DSP I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the cardbase and adhered it behind the DSP and then tied a bow and attached it on top).

For the stamped images, I used the Coffee Café stamp set and stamped two of the coffee cups and lids using Whisper White cardstock and Early Espresso ink.  The greeting is stamped in Garden Green ink.  Then I used the Big Shot and the coordinating Coffee Cup Framelits to cut out the cups, lids, and coffee cup band out of Garden Green cardstock (love this die since not only does it cut out but it embossed to provide a great texture that you see on the real coffee sleeves).   Next I used the Big Shot and Sweet and Sassy Framelits to cut a heart out of Pool Party cardstock.  The final touch, was to stamp the coffee beans, also in Early Espresso ink, on Crumb Cake cardstock and there's even a die to cut them out as well, so cute!  I used dimensionals to attach the cup lids, heart, and coffee beans, and just like that the card is complete!

This is such a fun card, a great way to let a special friend know that you're thinking of them!
