Your Kindness Warms My Heart!

Hi Friends!

Just popping in to share with you a card I made for the challenge over at City Crafter.  For the challenge, we are to create a project incorporating a drink of any kind...hot or cold.  I decided to use a coffee cup with heart.  I'm meeting my sis for lunch next week at our favorite coffee shop, and I plan to give her this card. 

For my card, I started with a tan card base and paired it with patterned papers from Carta Bella.  I embossed the coffee cup image and paper pieced the heart.  I popped it up for added dimension.  Doily and trim were placed.  Ribbon, twine, and button to finish off the card.  I decided to place the sentiment inside the card.  Here is a peek at the sentiment...

Well, that's all for now.  I hope you are having a great week so far!  Thanks so much for taking a peek at my card!  Take care!

  1. Maria, my coffee-loving heart adores this sweet creation! Your sister is going to love it and how lovely to give it to her at your favorite coffee shop. :o) The embossed image was a fabulous idea and I love the polka dot heart. The doily and pom trims are gorgeous together and I love the abundance of texture throughout. And the interior is so beautiful, too... the sentiment is perfection.
