Love you a Latte!

Most of the time, I’m not much for puns, but I really ended up liking this card.  I made it for my mother-in-law for mother’s day using Just Because Cards.  I have never used this cut before, so I sorta experimented with it.  The paper is from KI Memories.

I used the Candy Cane Stripe Cuttlebug folder to emboss the coffee pot.

latte 3

I added stitching to the letters with my white signo gel pen.  The circle was embossed using the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.

I added a pink mat with some of the patterned paper to the inside of the card.

latte 4

I used an envelope from my stash that matched the color scheme and cut out a the little coffee pot icon to use for a seal.

I wasn’t sure I was in love with the paper or the cuts, but once I put them together, I really liked it! 

I made several cards this weekend, so I’ll be sharing the rest this week.
