Coffee Card #8

This card used some foiling on it and even though I did not get the stripes on it perfect I am still going to enter this card into the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Hop. 


I placed strips of Scor Tape onto my white card base and then took the Gina K. Design Radiant Red foil and burnished it on so that I had a pretty foiled design. It sort of reminds me of peppermint. That made the background for the rest of the card. I did not have to use my laminator for this so it is a way to use foil without a heating device.

Using the Gina K. Designs Wreath Builder and the Holiday Wreath  Builder stamp set I made a wreath. I used Gina K. Designs ink pads and also Memento ink pads for the wreath images. I decided to add coffee items from the Gina K. Design Perfect Blend stamp set as well but I stamped them with black Memento ink onto white card stock and then colored them with a mix of Zig and Sharpie pens. After fussy cutting them out I popped them up on the wreath. The sentiment is also from the Holiday Wreath Builder set. I thought it was a good one for this design.

I am entering this in the Mod Squad Challenge too.

Thanks for the visit and for all the sweet comments you leave me. I sure have been having fun creating so many holiday coffee designs and I have been so inspired by all the others who have entered projects as well. This is a great event to get one motivated. So I truly thank all who do all the work to put this hop together. Especially so to Amy. She is an amazing lady!

Well, maybe I will be back again tomorrow. But I might have to concentrate on other things around here. So until next time take care.

God bless,
Verna

You have been on a holiday coffee card roll, Verna! Each one is as super as the one before, but I particularly love this festive number! BTW, my head must be screwed on crooked (no comment!) because your foil striping looks good to me!! Happy Holiday Hugs and Mugs, Darnell

I, too, love the strip. Now it reminds me of candycane cookies. My sister makes them each Christmas and they are such a huge hit.
