Life Begins After Coffee

Good morning,

I'm back this morning with my next DT project for the new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz today. This week Jane has chosen the theme of


Now I looked through all my stash, and struggled to find both 'food' and 'drink' together, so I just went with the 'drink'. Now there are lots of 'drinks' to choose from, but I am a coffee girl and my day always begins with a nice flavoured coffee, usually hazelnut. So, here's what I came up with for some inspiration ...

I used one of the stamps from the Tim Holtz 'Fresh Brewed Blueprint' set and coloured it with my Promarkers. The sentiment is printed on my pc and I added a couple of eyelets to two corners for a little extra embellishment. I used my scissors to distress the edge and added some 'Frayed Burlap' distress ink. I used some scraps of leftover design paper to make a background, which is also edged with 'Frayed Burlap' distress ink.

Hugz, Jan xx


  1. Great card Jan. I am not a coffee person myself but know plenty how are and this would be just perfect. Love the font you have used for your sentiment.

  4. Replace "coffee" with "tea" and that would be the perfect card for me!
