There were so many new products that caught my eye, it was a little difficult to choose where to start. You may be surprised that my first choice of suites was the Coffee Cafe. Why is that, you say? Well I don't drink coffee for one thing! I like the smell of it in a coffee shop, but haven't been able to develop the habit for myself. I tried really hard in college when I was first exposed to the "coolness" of drinking coffee, but blech.....couldn't do it. All this is to say there is something to love in this set for even the non-coffee drinkers like me! I love the color scheme of pale blue, dark brown and rich green. The Designer Series Paper set is creative and unique and the framelits, especially for the "to-go" cups are adorable! Here's my first card with this fun set!
The best part of this card is the sentiment. I know many people who subscribe to this motto! I added some fun details to my design as well. I used the coffee bean stamps and framelits as well as the little corrugated element tag in the corner. I especially want to draw your attention to the background, to a new product that would be easy to overlook on this card. It's the dynamic textured impressions embossing folder, "Pinewood Planks". These type of embossing folders are thicker than the standard ones and create an especially deep embossing texture. If you want to go even deeper, spritz your card stock lightly prior to embossing - that really bends the paper! After I had embossed, I used the coffee ring spill stamp from the "Timeless Textures" stamp set for some added interest. In spite of all that detail, the to-go coffee cup is my favorite design element! There are so many possibilities with the cup and the hand cooler sleeve. I've listed all my supplies below so you can see what I used. Click on the picture and you'll be directed right to the store!
I hope you have a great day today, especially if you are a coffee fan and are inspired by my card!
