My card features the new set Cyber Cafe! Yeah, Kim had me at the word Cafe...LOL! It's such a fun set with SO many different design elements included (a couple of them crack me up)! :-)
Well, being the coffee lover that I am, I chose to make a card that features one of the cups. It's been quite a while since I've layered up a card as much as I have here, but I really was going for a warm, homespun feel. After stamping the same cup across one of my patterned paper layers, I added a colored and cut out cup over the top of one of them. For the tag, I stamped the sentiment on some cream cardstock, then used one of my Spellbinders dies to cut out the tag shape. At first it was a bit too long for my card, so I cut a portion of it off and then rounded the corners. I made the flower using several die cut layers of cotton crinoline that I spritzed with some Glimmer Mist, scrunched up, let dry, and then smoothed out and topped with a cute button!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs, Laurie
