I Heart Coffee | Spring and Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop | Studio Katia



Are you a coffee lover? Well, I am but I do have a love/hate relationship with it. If I could I would drink more of it, but sadly I have to limit my intake as I'm too sensitive to caffeine and become an insomniac. So one cup early in the day is all I can handle. Sometimes if I want more, I will drink a decaffeinated coffee, but it's just not the same LOL!

CARD DETAILS

For my card today, I knew I wanted to use the SHAKER HEART so I began by die cutting 5 of these hearts out of red cardstock. This SHAKER HEART die is so awesome as it cuts out 3 different hearts using this one die (I kept all the other die-cuts for future use).  I then glued and stacked all of the center hearts together and glued it on to one of the bottom layers from which I kept the negative pieces.  And, that was pretty much all I did for the heart.

I then had the idea to use the heart as the "love" symbol for my card so I could create an I ๐Ÿ’—(heart) Coffee card. The coffee cup I used comes from the SWEET LATTE and coordinating DIES sets, which I colored in Copic markers and added the I to it (just in case the coffee cup itself wasn't self-explanatory). To the SCRIPT COFFEE DIE, I stacked 3 layers and added Glossy Accents to the top. And, to embellish the card front I used a few ONYX CRYSTALS.

It's difficult to see from my photos the gorgeous texture on the card. I used the SQUARE BRICK Stencil to do some dry embossing to the card panel. Before I added the embossing, I die-cut the panel out first to add the dotted stitching to the border using the large frame from the DARLING RIBBON and FRAMES DIES.

I left the inside of the card blank for now, but I think it would be a great card to send as a thank you card for a coffee lover and maybe include a gift card to their favorite coffee shop. I hope this card has inspired you today or made you thirsty for that next cup of Java. 

Thanks a LATTE for stopping by (sorry can't help but make a punny ๐Ÿ˜‚)
Until next time... Happy Hopping๐Ÿ‘‹
