Riley’s Caffeine Fix

I needed to make a card for my father this week. His birthday was way back in, oh, September?! I put off making it and sending it simply because he was out of the country and there was no way to get it to him overseas. Procrastination did not pay off, once again, and here I am trying to play catch up!

I tend to have a little trouble coming up with masculine cards and, since my father can’t distinguish between reds & greens (color blindness), I am limited just a little. I found this Riley image (Hanna Stamps) in my drawer of individual stamps the other night and just had to use it. Dad is a big coffee lover, you see!

Stamps: Riley (Hanna Stamps), Coffee Break (Gel-a-tins)

Paper: SU Autumn Vine, SU Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Really Rust, Whisper White cardstocks

Ink: SU Chocolate Chip, Black StazOn

Coloring: Copic markers

Accessories: CM cutting system, word window punch, corner punch, vintage brad, Cuttlebug embossing, Coffee Ice Stickles (on the berry atop the cupcake)

    Love it! Masculine cards seem harder for me too.
