Well, hello hello! This is my card for this week's colourQ challenge 121! Check it out, very rich and earthy toned this week!
Initially, I thought these colors would make a great teacher card, but I am ALWAYS, and I mean ALWAYS out of birthday cards when I need 'em! And, since I make so many cards in a year, I've decided that is RIDICULOUS! I should always have a birthday card (or 10!) on hand. I'd been toying with the idea of a card/gift card holder. So, this is what I came up with...
I made my card, and then made that lower panel with the mustard color punched edge, with no adhesive on the top, to create a pocket to slide the giftcard into. This way, it can be a card and a gift all in one!! I couldn't find a coffee cup stamp when I looked around my stash. I think I **DO** have one somewhere, but it's really small. I used lots of different stamps, and brands of things on this card, it was sort of all over the board!
This is such a cute latte girl stamp from MFT. Also I had never inked up this awesome mini clear Friends Words stamp I got from my last Spotted Canary prize package for the background, which is heat embossed in white EP on Kraft cardstock. I used and old SU! set called "Wow Flowers" for the birthday sentiment on the right. Though this isn't a very "birthday-ish" birthday card, I think it's really cute and fun for anyone who likes coffee! (like me, or pretty much all of my friends...) ;)
Well, that's all for me today! Hope you can come play with us at colourQ this week! Would love to see what YOU come up with!! :)
