Pilin' on the Caffeine

The theme this week at Pile It On is Coffee or Wine (or any adult beverage). We're sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps, and they have lots of fun coffee- and wine-themed images. I used the Frame it - Stella - drink coffee digi stamp to make this gatefold card:

To keep the front closed, I added a coffee cup brad that I heat-embossed in bronze.

For the base card, I used a shiny brown cardstock, and the bean-patterned paper is by Graphic45. I printed the Bugaboo image are 3 papers: a shiny bronze, a manila, a shiny white for the coffee cups, and plain white for Stella. I colored the images with Copics and glitter pens. I also added some gold coffee-bean stickers.

I used a Heartfelt Creations die set to make the cup for the inside, and heat-embossed a sentiment from a SU! rubber stamp set. The glittery steam lines over the cup are from the same SU! set.
