Afternoons & Coffee Spoons

>> Thursday, June 9, 2011

It's officially summer here and like most of you, I'm spending more time away from the scrap table and more time with the kiddos - at the park, in the pool, and on the playground!

But a busy summer schedule doesn't mean you have to give up scrapping all together. Here's a quick and easy card that won't take you long to create. It's a perfect all-occasion card (and would make a great holder for a Starbucks gift card!)


Lily Bee supplies:
Picket Fence patterned papers: Al Fresco, Seize the Day
This & That Tiny Tablet

  1. Create a 5.5 x 4.25 card from kraft cardstock. Stamp background with overlapping coffee stain stamp.
  2. Trim a piece of Al Fresco paper 5.5 x 1 and adhere to bottom edge of card.
  3. Use die cut machine or hand cut coffee cup shape from Tiny Tablet paper. Add striped Seize the Day paper to cup rim. Adhere with foam squares.
  4. Use glue pen to adhere twine in swirls above cup to mimic steam. Tie twine across top of card.
  5. Print sentiment on white cardstock. Trim to fit card and adhere.

And you're done! Now go grab an iced coffee and enjoy that summer weather !
