Dad Coffee Card

Hi lovely crafters. This is probably my last coffee card for the Spring/Summer coffee lovers blog hop.

I’m not only hopping along with the other coffee lovers, I’m also playing along over at Honey Bee Stamps for their masculine/Father’s Day card challenge. and So Suzy Stamps Masculine Challenge.I tried to make this card quick and easy so I stamped the word “DAD” all over a piece of Neenah Solar White Cardstock in Versafine Smoky Gray. Once I was sure the ink was dry, I added Tim Holtz Antique Linen to it using a blending tool. Okay, “now what do I do with it” a question I was asking myself. I’m very limited on coffee stamp as well as masculine stamps. It took me a very long time to figure out how to finish this card and have it still look somewhat decent.

I ended up going with mostly a word bass style card with only one small accent image on the inside. The little coffee cup on the inside I actually drew myself. As for the words used they are from the honey bee sentiment stamp sets and alphabet sets.

Honey Bee Stamp Sets Uses:

  • Happiness ~ All words on the front
  • Smile ~ The word “MORE” on the inside
  • Hand Lettered Alpha ~ The word “than” on the inside
  • Brush Grunge Alpha ~ The word “coffee” on the inside

The words were not enough and it needed to be jazzed up just a little. I wrapped some embroidery floss around the top and bottom of my “DAD” stamped panel. Even though this is a dude card I finished it off by adding a few dark gray sequins to the front.

Thanks for Stopping in and Happy Crafting!
