Corina has created a fabulous card for you today to start off the new challenge.


Hello & Happy August 1st!

Corina here for today's post and I will be sharing a card about one of my favourite things........Coffee! I love it and need it to function! 

When I saw these chipboard Paper Coffee Cups, I purchase two packages! I have a Tim Hortons gift cards inside this card to be given to a special friend - she is a fellow addicted coffee drinker! 

For the card background, I used the Intersecting Circles Stencil in 6x6 size (also available in 3x3 and 12x12) with Texture Paste tinted with Distress Ink in Ground Espresso. 

I matted the Coffee Pattern Paper with Black cardstock and distressed the edges. I painted the medium sized Paper Coffee Cup and the Vintage Clock with Distress Paint. I added the burlap and the Coffee/Java Circle to the Chipboard Cup.

I adhered the arrow "THE WAY TO MY HEART" to the card front and coloured with a Stardust pen. For a finishing touch I added coffee beans with a glue gun and tucked burlap in to the base of my card.
