Shaker card for a coffee lover
Hi guys, Julie here with you today and I am sharing one of my favorite card I made this month using the Coffee Besties stamp set. I absolutely adore this stamp set since I am a BIG coffee lover. The cute embellishments were my inspiration for the colors that I used for this card.
I started this card by die cutting the panel for the windows with Bristol cardstock, because ink blending on this type a paper makes it really easy. I used my distress inks in carved pumpkin, twisted citron and walnut stain. I wanted to made panels of colors that matched with the embellishment: roasted coffee, camp fire and captivating cactus. To add some depth to my card, I splattered some water on my panel, the distress inks colors and some picket fence spray stain.
For the images, I stamped them with versafine onyx black ink because I wanted to used my zig color brush markers and some water. Since I wanted to use the dog and the cat, but it would be too busy with all of the cups, I had this idea to put them as if they were sneaking out of the windows. So I stamped only the half of these images, and fussy cut the cat and the dog out of the cups. I chose my colors to make them coordinate with my ink blended backgrounds and embellishments.
