Always a Good Idea

Hi there 🙂 I love going for coffee with my friends, but sometimes things get in the way and it might not seem like such a good idea. This card is a reminder that it’s always a good idea for coffee and time with friends!! I colored up Le Pine: Margaret Coffee from Mirtillamente with my Copics, then fussy cut her out.

For the layout, I used this fabulous sketch, from Cheerful Sketches:

I went through my papers, and found that this plaid coordinated really nicely with the colors that I’d used on my image. I recently purchased a cool coffee bean stencil, so of course had to use that for one of the elements!! I die cut and inked a piece, and popped the image on with some foam dots, then stamped the sentiment on the last piece. I matted and layered everything up, following the sketch pretty much exactly, then went looking for some sort of embellishment. It’s like I’d just begun crafting, and have absolutely minimal supplies (NOT), because I couldn’t find anything suitable. I did, however, find my Fimo, so I made some coffee beans up to finish the front of the card!

I had the idea that it would be nice to include a coffee gift card with this, so, for the inside, I assembled some pieces, and cut a pocket for one. There’s still plenty of room to write a personal greeting, as well. Now, there’s no excuse!! Lol.

I’d like to enter this in the following –
