A Caffeine Ladened Happy Birthday


My son is quite the coffee drinker, so I thought it would be fun to make a "coffee" card, with a gift card included inside, for his birthday.  I used a few Waltzingmouse dies, along with the Waltzingmouse set We go together.  I paper-pieced the coffee cup after dicutting out the base (with the coordinating We go together die set) out of burlap designed dp.  I then popped it up with dimensional tape onto a tag that I diecut using the Stitched tags die set.  

The frame took a bit more work.  I diecut out the leaf frame (using the Stitched Rectangles die set), then I took the same die, laid it over some black decorative paper, and traced the inside of the die, with an exacto knife, so I could have a perfect matting.  I then glued the leaf frame to the black piece and trimmed around the outside of the frame so the inside and outside had a nice clean, crisp, black matting.  Easy-peasy and I like the dimension it gives.  It's also popped up with dimensional tape.    

I stamped the sentiment "Happy birthday" (from the set Hello, Happy, Thanks), with Onyx Black Versafine ink, directly onto some decorative paper and fussy cut them both out.  Happy is popped up also with dimensional tape.

Lastly, I added a little "coffee" strip that I Ink Isolated from one of the sentiments in the We go together set.

That's about sums up today's card.

I hope you get a chance to get inky this weekend.  It's therapeutic I tell ya!!

Be sure to stop by on the 25th for a peak at a new Power Poppy digi.  It's delicious!!

   Happy Stamping!!
