I am a coffee lover and my day starts with a good cup of coffee every day without fail. Then one at about 3:30PM. Back in my younger days in India, I loved filter coffee. Oh, the aroma of filter coffee early in the morning is very nostalgic to me. After migrating to Australia, I quickly got the taste of Italian coffee. Melbourne has a great coffee culture. I loved it. That when I bought a coffee machine (manual) trying to mimic the coffee bought from the shop. It was a lot of work to get the right proportions of coffee and froth and milk in the cup. Soon upgraded to an automatic machine which I still own. Now that I have discovered the Nespresso machine, the automatic have gone into its box in the shed. My favourite Nespresso coffee pod is the purple Arpeggio. So my card for today’s Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is inspired by one of Nespresso brochure that came recently. Here is my coffee card.
I have used the ray stencil from MFT to sponge the Frayed Burlap and Mustard Seeds. I also sponged some Delicata gold ink to give some shine. The coffee cup and sentiment is from Lil’ Inkers Design. I die cut the cup and coloured using copics with adding some Ice Candy distress glitter for the froth. I then white heat embossed the sentiment on the cup.
For the bottom part of the card front, I have used wood pattern paper from My Mind’s Eye wood paper pad. I sponged some Mustard Seed on the pattern paper to colour coordinate with the rest of the card. I trimmed the paper at an angle so the coffee cup is glued at the centre using foam adhesive. The angled cut gives depth to the card.
The other sentiment is white heat embossed on the wood pattern paper towards the bottom of the card. Here is a closeup of the card.
