Coffee Hop - Spring 2019 / Take 1

It's been  a crazy few weeks and I'm just now posing my first link for the 2019 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop .. I used a fun set from Polka Dot Orchard - Live Life Like a Butterfly .

  • I mounted a scrap piece of yellow paper onto a Kraft card base. 
  • The coffee cup image and the sentiment were both printed on Neenah Stardust White Cardstock. I also printed the coffee cup on Kraft cardstock and a piece of multi-colored patterned paper and cut out the coffee center and the saucer. 
  • I colored the Kraft coffee center image, the cup  and the butterflies at the top of the cup  with a variety of my favorite markers - Brea Reese, Flair, Sharpie and Faber-Castell.
  • I placed a strip of blue floral washi with gold highlights at the top of the sentiment, which was then mounted with foam squares at the top left corner.
I liked this image so much that I made several other notecards with the images. I punched several butterflies from a sheet of undeveloped x-ray film that I got when I worked in the ICU !! These were attached to the cards with my Tim Holtz Tiny Stapler.  I also used several Candy Dot embellishments.

The  2019 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop will allow links to be posted until 11:55 pm PST on May 10. There are already over 1000 projects posted !! I hope that you like my cards . I'll be mailing them to a friend who wanted some coffee-themed cards to send to her friends.

Thank you so much for visiting Meticulosity !!
 Be sure to check out the Polka Dot Orchard Blog .
They will be having some fun giveaways during the Hop.
