Cafe au Natural


Yesterday was National Coffee Day and I made a card in honor of the occasion.  Coffee is my favorite drink.  In fact, I would almost start an IV on myself to have a continuous infusion of coffee.   I made this card just in time to enter it in this year's Fall Coffee Lover's Bloghop.  

I used new and old elements in my craft stash for this card.  The leaves are a combination of old Cuttlebug dies and new SU framelits.  The Cuttlebug die cuts were embossed while the SU cuts are stamped with the matching stamp set.  I also used new to me coffee-themed dies and stamps from Verve.  I like to add a touch of sparkle to my work, so I used sparkle gel pens to accent the word coffee and the coffee in the cup.

Recipe:
Stamps:  One Cup, Coffee - Verve; Vintage Leaves - SU
Paper:  WW, Soft Suede, Dusty Durango, Elegant Eggplant, Always Artichoke, DP
Ink:  Soft Suede, Dusty Durango, Elegant Eggplant, Always Artichoke
Accessories:  Coffee Word and Cuppa Dies, SU Framelits, Embossing Folders, Gel Pens
