I was asked to make a birthday card for a female coffee lover. A coffee cup seemed like a good chance to use one of my favorite techniques....paper piecing. I used the Cocoa's Coffee digi from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps and via Photoshop elements removed Cocoa. The cup was then paper pieced and the Feminine Birthday Greetings sentiment was printed right on the pink band. For my tutorial on paper piecing with digi stamps click here. Some copic markers provided a little shading for the cup.
Dots from a white gel pen add interest to the scalloped mat. It is popped up over the cardstock/patterned paper/ribbon strip. A matted sentiment and some rhinestones finish off the front.
A little interior decorating with a stamped birthday wish and the card is complete.
