I've been in a mood to make coffee cards... and then I was reminiscing about my friend thousand of miles away. Miss my friend bunches.
Side folded my brown card (6" sq).
Found the coffee cup image onLine and created a stencil type image which I eCut. Layered it onto my brown front. Added some white gel pen details to the coffee beans and steam.
Used various alphabet stamps to create the text for the haiku. Inked the front text with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Continued the text on the inside right side. Used an anti static pad, inked the balance of the text with Distress Picket Fence and embossed with white detail embossing powder.
Stamped the coffee cups (Impression Obsession "Smell the Coffee") using the black and clear embossed.
On the inside left I die cut the "Thinking of You" (also available on Quietfire Design HERE) from white soft finish cardstock, adhered to card.
Stamped the quote ("In a Perfect World" 4pce set), Quietfire Design, using the black and clear embossed.
Final touch, adhered a piece of narrow black ribbon along the fold line and to the front, tying a bow.
