Coffee Note Cards
I see many coffee themed cards in my internet travels, but I have never made one myself. Last week, I was asked if I had any coffee themed cards on hand… Guess what I did as soon as I got home! After looking online at the large collection of coffee related stamps and dies available, I ordered a few and not-so-patiently waited for them to arrive.
As I mentioned in my “Falling Leaves” post, I also received a request for blank note cards without a greeting so I decided to combine the two requests and design another plain note card but with a coffee theme.
For this card, I featured the Stampendous “Coffee Background” stamp which I stamped with Gina K Dark Chocolate ink on Recollections Ivory card stock. I crimped a strip of Recollections Kraft card stock with my Uchida Crimping tool and adhered that to the stamped panel. (This kind of reminded me of the corrugated cup sleeves you often see with take-out cups to protect your hands.) The edges of both were inked with the Dark Chocolate. After adding some baker’s twine (from Target), I added this to an ivory mat and a kraft card base. A blank ivory panel was adhered inside for a personal message.
I used my MISTI to make sure I got a good stamped image for the front of my card and was able to make multiples for boxed sets.
I am still waiting for a few more stamps and dies to arrive in the mail and will be making more coffee themed cards when they do!
Thanks for checking out my card project!

These card packs are coming out wonderful. I love the Misti for multiples… Much easier. Can hardly wait to see the next grouping.
That is such a wonderful coffee themed background. I love your note cards.
Cute cards! Great idea for keeping these kinds on hand.
