The Beans of Life

Display our button

I don’t usually post anything card related on a Sunday, but being a rather rainy, not-so-motivating kind of day, I spent some time in my craft room during nap time and created a coffee card.  I haven’t made anything coffee themed for a while and whipped this up to go along with the typography challenge over at the Paper Smooches challenge blog!

The little red heart in the corner is actually covered with Crystal Effects to give it some shine, but given the extremely grey day, lighting is not in my favor.  Here’s a close up:

Stamps:  Paper Smooches (Cyber Cafe)

I also added brown pearls and rounded the card corners.  I think I am now in the mood to create more coffee cards, so be on the lookout for them here on the blog this week!

Enjoy your evening!

    Now this is one cute card 😉 I needed a triple dose of beans to get this day started with all the fog and gloom today!

    Excellent card Melissa, I love how you kept offset the fun bean image and the words. Fantastic!
