Java Time

I've stated before that I'm not a coffee drinker but I do love the coffee sets.  I had fun creating with the Coffee4Two set and know it's one I will use for gifts quite frequently.  I used an unusual color combination for this first card as it's not one you normally see with coffee, but I wanted it to be a little different.



Card details:
Cardstock: Orange You Fabulous and Hibiscus Burst
Inks: Orange You Fabulous, Perfect Little Black Dress, Copics
Accessories: Orange You Fabulous and Hibiscus Burst buttons, black twine




This next one was the first one I created with this set, it was large enough that I just cut out a silhoutte larger than the stamp to create my card base.  I left the coffee cup pretty plain on the front as I didn't want to add too much color and was going to add a belly band to hold it all shut, but decided to utilize the belly band inside to hold in my gift card instead.



You can see the coffee image is a pretty good size and the stamps for the inside fit perfectly along with the words from the Labels2Use set.  The belly band actually will fit over the whole card as well and I adhered the gift card on using a zot.

Card details:
Cardstock: Glamazon Green, A Blanc check
Inks: Perfect Little Black Dress
Accessories: Circle Punch
