Thanks a latte...


I love to make cards.  So much in fact, that I think it has been about three years since I purchased a card in a store (sorry Hallmark).   I thought I'd share this one I made today. 




First, have you seen these punches? They are great because you can see exactly where on the paper you are punching.  I love this one in particular because it punches out cups of coffee. I love coffee!  I suppose you could use it for hot chocolate... if you must.



I used the punch in the front lower right hand corner of the card, and picked a paper to put on the back so it would show through.  My two inch circle punch worked perfectly for that, it looks very neat on the inside.



This is the image on the back.  I stamped the coffee cup in StazOn ink in black, and then used watercolor pencils to color it in.  A little bit of water on my brush blended all of the colors together. 
 Hope you like it a latte!
