Drink, Read & Be Happy

Another Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is here and of course, I had to post something on the first day. I combined my love of books and coffee for this card that is being sent to a friend of mine in Munich, Germany. I think that Gina loves books and coffee as much as I do !!

 

  • I started with an apple green card base and placed a piece of my hoarded Public Library  paper by October Afternoon on top of that as a background. I have had this paper for a LONG time and just couldn't bring myself to use it until I was working on this card for Gina & the Blog Hop. 
  • The stamped image is Chapter One from Unity Stamps that I colored with my favorite markers - a combination of Distress markers, PITT Artist pens & Stabilos. The image and sentiment were stamped with Memories India Black Ink. The books were stamped on Neenah Stardust White Cardstock and the sentiment was stamped on Kraft cardstock.
  • I adhered  everything using my Bazzill Permanent Adhesive Runner. A bit of glitter was used on the steam rising out of the coffee cups.

I'm looking forward to seeing all of the projects linked up to this Hop. They are always amazing and inspire me to make more and more coffee/tea/cocoa cards !! Thank you for visiting Meticulosity... I'll be offering some blog candy to someone who comments on my posts throughout the Hop.
