Today’s card is a CAS (clean and simple) card using three different colors and the new Merry Café stamp set with the Coffee Cups Framelits. I saw Charlet Mallett’s card from the challenge (down below) and I just thought it was so beautiful and it was truly my inspiration.
I started off with Thick Whisper White cardstock. I took a 1-1/2″ panel of Peekaboo Peach cardstock and embossed it with the Pinewood Plank embossing folder.
Around the Peekaboo Peach panel I stamped the Merry Café images in Early Espresso, Peekaboo Peach, and Soft Sky inks (stamping the inside images off first for a lighter shade).
I stamped the outline of the cup in Early Espresso ink on a pattern from the Coffee Break DSP. I stamped the lid and handle outline in Early Espresso ink on Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment inside the handle in Peekaboo Peach ink. I cut them out using the Coffee Cups Framelits.
My card today was inspired by this week’s color challenge at TGIF Challenges!
