Espress Yourself Coffee Card

I love making coffee cards!!!

I have lots of Coffee Stamp sets "Like it a Latte", "What's Brewin'?", and the new one "Morning Cup" but the set I used Today is "Espress Yourself". I love Coffee so goes to say.. I love Coffee stamps. They make the best birthday and friend cards and you can always add a Coffee gift card inside. Right now my favorite Coffee is a Mocha with Coconut in it.. YUM YUM! at my favorite place they call it the "Hollywood Star" Terry and I get it every time we go there.

I stamped the words in Chocolate chip and then added the mug in Baja breeze. I stamped and cut the little cups then taped them to a piece of Baja breeze and cut them out again and then added them with hemp thread. I put lots of Dimensionals so that it looks like the mugs are hanging on the card. Some of the other saying in this stamp set are Happy Birthday to a Regular Joe", Your friendship warms my heart", Just wanted to Espresso my thanks" really great sayings! That is one reason I have kept this set for so many years.! I can't wait to see what Terry Su's card looks like.
