Thanks a Latte

Here's another fun card from my recent card workshop using the Seaside Paper Pack from Close to My Heart.

This was a "fan favorite" in the class.  I was inspired from a Stampin' Up card by demonstrator Eileen Dent.  She doesn't have a link to her card online, but it was super cute and I used her layout and replaced her SU products with our CTMH papers and stamps for my purposes.  :)

I knew I wanted to use this coffee cup as soon as I saw it in the "Treats of Friendship" set.  One of the sentiments in this set says "I like you a latte", but I thought a thank you card would be more useful for my group of workshop attendees, so I cut the sentiment in half and only used the "a latte" portion.  I used the "Thanks" from the very versatile set called "Finding the Words".  

This set is also a great one for coloring or paper piecing, which I did here.  Here's a closer look.

I also added some interest to the Crystal Blue cardstock by stamping with one of the images on the Distressed Backgrounds set.

Here's a closer look at the three stamp sets used on this card: 

Well, that's it for today.  Thanks a latte for stopping by, hee hee.  Please visit again soon.  :)

** Note: And as I've mentioned in my previous posts, I'm also listing some of my cards for sale in both my Etsy shop and my Ebay shop.  You can find the links on the sidebar of this blog.  For the next few months the sales will go towards the cost of a school trip to Italy my 15 year old son will be taking next Spring.  Every little bit helps, right? **
