What do you think of when the weather changes? The first thing that comes to my mind is Pumpkin Spice coffee! I love coffee all year round but there’s something really special about flavored coffee when the weather starts getting colder. Am I the only one who feels that way?? Well, I made this card for my son and daughter-in-law, using Merry Café, Coffee Café and the coordinating Coffee Cups Framelits, to let them know how happy we are for their recent life changes and achievements. Starting off after graduating college is not easy these days and every step taken should be acknowledged. My kids look forward to my monthly cards and I absolutely love making them! With the popularity of tea and hot chocolate in addition to coffee, these coordinating sets will be popular for a long time! (Save 10% with the bundle!)
It’s All in the Details
- This card started with Garden Green cardstock for the card base then layered with Designer paper from Coffee Break DSP.
- Fun Part! Stamping and cutting the great stamps from Merry Café, Coffee Café and Wild about Flowers with Coffee Cups Framelits and the Banner Triple Punch. The straws were fussy cut. The little “love is brewing” sentiment was stamped onto the back of Corrugated Elements. I love that it resembles the IRL sleeve on a coffee cup and gave it a little pop as well! The lids were popped up with dimensionals.
- Finishing Touch: Interspersing a few Garden Green Enamel Shapes onto the card front is a great embellishment for this masculine card.
