Like it a Latte Card

I love making cards and I love a good cup of Coffee! I guess I took the easy way out when it comes to the color choice. With the color Early Espresso all I could do was think of coffee tonight. It might be because I did not have any today. Terry also made a card using the same colors Clink here to see it.

The Cup I stamped it first into So Saffron then used the Early Espresso marker around the edge to give it that cool out line. I did the same thing with the Heart but with Cherry Cobbler.
 I used a new 2way glue pen on this, and wow what a difference it makes. My old pen was getting so old I was getting glitter on everything. lol I stamped and cut out the little espresso beans.
I just love that seam binding ribbon, do you!??
