Irish Coffee for the 2016 Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Hello Blogging Buddies,

I am sorry to say that I missed Day 2 and 3 of the 2016 Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop, but I am here for Day 4!!  I made today's card for my facebook friend and I mailed it to her last week and now that I know Debra has received her card I want to share it with you for the 2016 Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop:


Ingredients:

Green Ink
Black Ink
Copic markers
Green Bakers Twine
Green gems
Four leaf clover charm
Assorted paper from my stash

For this A2 card I started with some light green card stock.  I added the Irish plaid paper to the card.  Next I stamped the North Coast Creations Irish Coffee stamp in black ink onto some white paper.  Then I colored the image with Copic markers, cut it out using one of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Ovals , inked the edges with green ink and added it to the card.  I placed some green gems on the whipped cream to look like sprinkles.  I stamped the sentiment from the same Irish coffee stamp set on white paper cut it out with a smaller Lawn Fawn  Stitched Oval, inked the edges with green ink and added that to the card.  Next I took some Bakers Twine and wrapped it around the card several times, added the four leaf clover charm and then tied a bow.   I love the way this turned out and I sure hope that Debra liked it too!

Don't forget tho check out all the wonderful coffee, tea or cocoa cards and creations that everyone is making for the 2016 Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop!  Why not join in too??

  2. Cute plaid card. Love the charm. It's almost like you have to tell family and friends that they aren't allowed to look at your blog 3 weeks before a holiday or their birthday or something special.
