#3 Summer Coffee Card

For my third card for the 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop I created a CAS type using some pattern paper that I did a copy and paste technique onto a Word doc. using the sun cup from the Verve Rise and Shine digital set.


I colored the cups pattern paper I made with some bright summer type colors using the Zig markers and then layered the paper onto black card stock. I then added a Stamplorations Cutplorations coffee die cut over some black card stock and added that over the top. Next I added this design to the base card of summer shade of orange card stock. The finishing touch was to add a line of rhinestones and black gems which were in sticker form. The rhinestones were originally clear but I colored them in with the same colors I used on the cups. The coffee die was cut from some foiled paper using Deco Foil called Amber Watercolor. I thought that gave it a bit more of an elegant look and reminded me of coffee too.

I hope your Sunday is going great. Yesterday afternoon my family threw a surprise party for me and it was so much fun. We had over 51 guests who attended so we had some good fellowship and great lunch too. I sure am feeling blessed for all the neat things turning 70 brought. Sort of takes the pain away of feeling so old. 😊 Also thanks for all the wonderful visits and comments you make. 

God bless,
Verna
