Coffee Friends

Here is my second card for the 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I used an older Rubber Romance stamp I had purchased several years ago from I Brake For Stamps but I guess that the Rubber Romance company is out of business now. On the bench I added a couple of cups of coffee which I got from the digital set from Verve called Rise and Shine. The sentiment is from the Stampendous set called Coffee Talk. By combining all of these elements together I thought I had a nice card design.


I used my Zig markers to color in the image and then die cut it with a Cottage Cutz double stitched rectangle die. I also die cut the sentiment panel. The coffee cups were downsized a lot by me and colored and then I did a slit by each of the ladies' knees and added the cups onto the bench between them. My finishing touch was to add all to a pink card base and also a rhinestone flower to the sentiment panel.

Well, thanks again for your comments and visits. I hope your weekend is off to a great start.

God bless,
Verna
