Hello Blogger Friends!! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog on this Friday in February. It's the day before Valentine's Day and I still have a few more cards to show.
This is one that I made for my middle grandson Aidin. He has started to drink coffee made from the new Keurig machine that my daughter-in-law received for Christmas. He has a lot of different favorites already.
So I thought a coffee themed card would be perfect for him for Valentine's Day. Aidin likes the cards I make for him and takes the time to look them over and give me feedback. He is always more positive than not, but he does let me know when he thinks something could have been done differently.
It's always so precious to hear from him. he told me recently that he has saved every card I ever made him. How about that!!
So onto the details for this card. This is my sample for this week's CC517 on Splitcoaststampers. Barbara is our hostess and she chose the color trio of coastal cabana, old olive and bermuda bay. Our option this week is layers- and we are to use 4 or more.
I needed one more Valentine card and a masculine one so the colors worked out perfect for me. I like using non-traditional colors for Valentine cards.
My card layout is this week's Mojo384. Lots of layers in the sketch so the option is covered.
The coastal cabana designer paper is from Stampin-Up's "maritime" collection.
The heart border is Verve's "scalloped trim trio" die.
My coffee cup and sentiment are from The MFT "perk-up" stamp and coffee die set. I finished this card by adding some twine and a tiny bow.
Well that's it for me for this post. Time to get back to my stamp organization. I am still in the process of setting up my new stamping room. What an undertaking this has been.
So until next time.......God bless.
