Love You a Latte

Happy Friday!! I am celebrating today with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's Blog for their Spring/Summer Blog Hop!

I created a card with the CAS-Friday's new Coffee Chips chipboard. It is available NOW in the NEW section of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamp Store.

I started off my card by using the By the Beans Stencil and Ground Espresso Distress Ink to create a background.

When I was done stenciling, I ran the stencil and my stenciled background through my die cut machine to dry emboss the panel. This gave the stenciling a slightly raised look as you can see in the photo below.

I then adhered my background to an A2, top folding card base. This card was inspired by last weeks Freshly Made Sketches #435 so I adhered some paper strips from my scrap card as indicated by the sketch below. If you are new to my blog, I often use sketches when making most of my cards. Some are from challenges, others I create myself.

Next I used the Coffee'isms stamp set to to stamp part of my sentiment with red ink onto a circle die cut.

I adhered the circle to my card front using foam adhesive to give it a little pop.

The "latte" sentiment is from the new Coffee Chips  chipboard, which I inked with Ground Espresso Distress Ink to match the background, before adhering under the stamping.

My last step was to adhere a chipboard heart that I had covered with Candy Apple Distress Ink, Aqua Shimmer Pen and some Glossy Accents.

I had so much fun putting this card together and I hope that you like it!! Hop on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Blog to see more great coffee cards from the design team.
