Today’s project was inspired my husband, Mike, and his love of coffee! I thought to myself what would be a great card for Mike to give to me for Valentine’s Day? That’s when I remembered the new DeNami coffee stamps and said perfect!
The card base is a piece of white cardstock cut to make a 5” square top folding card. The red polka dot pattern paper is cut to 4.75”x4.75” and the stamped panel is 4”x4”. I used a pencil and a ruler to draw a 1” grid on my stamp panel so that I would know where to stamp the square stitched border. I used grey dye ink to stamp the border inside each of the square of the grid. Next, I stamped the coffee cup in red dye ink inside of each of the squares. After looking high and low for my good eraser, I erased the gridlines that I had created. On a scrap of white cardstock, I stamped the square border in the same red dye ink and the owl in the tea cup in black dye ink. With Copic markers, I colored in the owl and the teacup. On the edge of the paper I used a grey marker to give it a more finished look. For the greeting I used an alphabet stamp set from Lawn Fawn and stamped the greeting in black dye ink on both the front of the card and the inside of the card.
As always, below is a list of supplies I used with links where you can purchase. Enjoy!
