Vintage Lady Coffee Card

This morning I grabbed a few minutes and did a bit of hopping on the 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and found this free digital from Tlc Creations which I think is called Paulette. Anyway I saved it to my computer and this afternoon made a card with it.



The digi was in black and white and lightly sketched but for my card I added some subtle colors with my colored pencils. Then I added Versamark ink all over the cut out image and added some clear embossing powder from Gina K. Designs and heat set it. I then layered this to a black double stitched square die cut which was cut with a Gina K. Designs die. Next I added this to a panel of pattern paper which came from my gift box of yellow items which I won in the hop last year from The Cutting Cafe.

Along the edge of this panel I added a row of the Filigree Leaf Die from Gina K. Designs which I cut out in various Fall colors. Then along the other side on the bottom I added the sentiment and pumpkin which were from the Harvest Blessings set by Joy Clair. The pumpkin and sentiment were stamped with Gina K. Designs black ink and then I colored the pumpkin in with some Copics.

This main yellow pattern paper panel was then layered onto black card stock and then again some orange card stock before I placed it on the white card base.

Now that was fun and I was glad I got time to get a card done again today. We are in a tornado watch until midnight so I may have to turn off the computer later on if there is a lot of lightning. So I am rushing this post. Hopefully, I got all the details in. Thanks for visiting and I hope you are able to do some of the hop as well.

God bless,
Verna

Verna, this is a GREAT card so glad you were able to use this freebie from TLC, Create. Those leaves are a great die. Paulette is the owner of the site. She gives out freebies a LOT so it is a wonderful place to go regularly. She also has sets for sale at a very reasonable price (under $3). Many times she has a monthly club for an amount and then you get daily images which is so worth the price. I have been a DT member for her and it is a fun site. Hugs.
