Today's card is made using the stamp set "Coffee Café", it is found on page 31 in the 2016-2017 Catalog.
I wasn't sure I needed this set...do we need any of them...really...LOL
Yeah I know, but it took awhile for it to grow on me. It has coordinating framlits dies, called "Coffee Cups" and can be purchased as a bundle with a 10% savings. It is so cute with all the great little dies. One even cuts a coffee cup from the DSP
I used the "Pattern Party Decorative Masks" and Embossing Paste for the brick background. I added a little Early Espresso re-inker direct to the paste and mixed it on the mask. This is found on page 201 of the big catty. This is the first time I've used it and I like the raised background it creates. Adding a little dimension.
I used the Linen thread, but there is coordinating ribbon in 3 colors. I love the softness of it, in Crumb Cake, Soft Sky, and Whisper White.
I made 2 cards, and added the Corrugated Elements Heart to only one. They are sold on page 31.
The DSP is called "Coffee Break Designer Series Paper", you can find it on page 188. Colors used are Garden Green, Early Espresso, and Whisper White. Hope you enjoy it!
I've decided I did really need this set.....as well as the coordinating set in the Holiday Catalog "Merry Café". It takes this set twice as far, for all seasons and Holidays!!
