Today I have a fun card to share with you. It's the kind of card that you love to get in the mail...a *just because* kind of card. I'm using my friend Pine's (Heather Nichols) set called Warm Happiness. I've always loved working with coffee stamp sets so I was delighted when I saw Pine's set. And in true Papertrey style, the images are very interactive and versatile. For the coffee cup image, I used four different stamps to create the look! I paired it up with some great sentiments, I just love the fonts that Pine chose for this set. The new Spellbinders die that I used is called Classic Inverted Scalloped Squares and it will be available later this Spring. When I first posted my sneak peek of this die template, many of you were a little intimidated by it. I think it's the pointed edges....but once you saw the die actually used on a card, you loved it! It really does spice up a card, don't you think? And it offers the same embossing capabilities as the other Nestabilities Dies. Fun stuff! My base card uses Papertrey Ocean Tides cardstock along with Ocean Tides Saddle Stitched Ribbon. Patterned paper is from October Afternoon.
It's nice to have some cards like this in your stash basket, just for those times when you're thinking about someone and want to send a little something. And there's nothing as warm and inviting as a nice hot cup of coffee! Enjoy.
