Cup o' Coffeeflies -- Coffee Loving Cardmakers' Spring Blog Hop

Happy Spring! A new season means a new Blog Hop with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers, and I always enjoy playing along.

I adapted cut files I used for a coffee mug pocket card to make this punny, interactive card. You could also tuck a gift card in there!

The butterfly stamps & punch are from Stampin' Up! and the coffee beans dies are from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I stamped the butterfly backgrounds with Tea Due distress ink & heat-embossed them with a stash mix of white, gold, clear & shiny powders. I ink-distressed the edges & also used my Ingvild Bolme/Prima distressing tool on the edges.

The sentiment on the front is a stamp from Art Impressions, and I computer-generated the inside sentiment using the Bradley Hand typeface. I created the frame stamp by die-cutting foam with flower & circle dies. I used the foam stamp with purple ink to stamp the frames.
