Grab life by the beans

Summer lovin...had me a blast.... of coffee that is. Whether it is hot or cold coffee in the summertime is awesome! I decided to be apart of this bog hop cause...... sometimes you just got to "grab life by the beans"! I made this card with a die cut some stencils embossing powder and ink. I wanted a earth tone feel to it so it kinda resemble coffee stains. 


I took a square piece of card and inked it with distress ink gather twigs and rusty hinge and made it blend, then I die cut the cup out of it. It technically is supposed to go the the other direction so I die cut it from the back facing up. 



After die cutting the coffee cup I embossed it with a layer of liquid platinum embossing powder  because isn't that what coffee is LIQUID PLATINUM!
  

I layered a white piece of card stock behind it to make it pop against the background. I inked the steam and the sentiment and embossed it with the liquid platinum. 


I used the same inks and and a circle stencil and it's like magic... 


I love how this card turned out.

Hope you enJOYed.
