A Trio of Thanks

This was a pretty quick card to put together and it used all scraps from other cards (except of course for the card base). Strips of patterned paper were layered with strips of navy cardstock from edge to edge on the A2 sized card front. The sentiment was white heat embossed and white gel pen adds faux stitching. The little coffee cups were colored with Copics and then fussy cut. A Tuxedo Black Memento marker was used on the cut edges and to darken up the hearts on the cup sleeves. A 1.25" square punch was used to punch 3 squares of kraft cardstock that was then dry embossed. These squares were matted on 1 3/8" squares of navy patterned paper and adhered to the card front. To finish off the card, the coffee cups were popped up using foam squares. I really like how this turned out and loved having a way to use up some of those scrap pieces of patterned paper. You'll probably see this sketch again.

Cardstock: Recollections (kraft), Cor'dinations (Black Iris), Georgia Pacific (images)
Patterned Paper: Playing with Color 2 (Fall Patterned cardstock)
Stamps: Fiskars clear stamps (Latte Love), Stampabilities (Coffee)
Ink: VersaMark, Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Copics: YR 20, 21, 24; Y21; E41, 42, 43, 44
Other: Cuttlebug embossing folder (Swiss Dots), Simon Says Stamp fine detail embossing powder (white), Gelly Roll gel pen (white), Creative Memories Square Punch (1.25"), Memento Marker (Tuxedo Black)

I'm linking this card up in the 2017 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I'm also linking it up in the challenges listed below:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Pop It Up (I used foam square to pop up my images)
