coffee and cookies



So this week's Play Date Cafe colors are kraft, flesh and cadet blue and since Ms. Literal girl over here saw coffee cups on the photo I thought "duh, gotta make another coffee card".  I shared these coffee projects with the local coffee shop (who's coffee was being decorated) and they kindly offered me some burlap sacks for my next project.  So I thought it'd be fun to use a piece of the sack for some added texture (Moxie Fab World "Textured to Perfection" and Lily Pad Cards "A Texture Challenge").  I had to recruit some help from my friend to sew the sack and ribbon onto the card as I don't have a sewing machine, but it worked out well.  Obviously I had the CAS-ual Friday sketch in the back of my mind from yesterday's card, while my take isn't exact (be proud girls), it kinda works if you flip and rotate it?)

Materials: PTI Warm Happiness Too, Paper Smooches Warm Concoctions, burlap sack, ribbon from Karen, PTI kraft card stock, Coredinations card stock, Versafine black ink, water color pencils, PTI Warm Happiness die

Super cute texture on your card, Erin. Next up, convince you to get a Janome Sew Mini. So easy to use, takes up little space, and little boys are fascinated by it.

Love this card! Super cute! I really love the addition of the burlap, gives it a coffee bag feel. And I like how you stuck mostly to brown colors with hints of blue.

I think it's awesome that you convinced your friend to sew on your card- and fab that the coffee shop supplied that burlap! Sometimes literal is the best way to go! :)
