Coffee Loving Cardmakers

Picnic With Coffee Card

Hi everyone!  I am so excited to be here for my post on the CLC DT! I have an interactive card for you of a picnic with COFFEE!  I grew up partly in Germany and pretty much daily at around 3pm is “Kaffeetrinken / Coffee Drinking” (similar to tea time in the UK) that is usually served with a cake.  When I was younger I would just, of course, eat the cake!

I made a picnic scene with the adorable mice from the Crazy Antics stamp set coupled with the Slide on Over Maze die. I added coffee cups from the Love You A Latte stamp and die set  that slide around the picnic.

I stamped the Crazy Antics stamp set (Memento tuxedo black ink on 110lb Neenah solar white cardstock) and then die cut all the images with Crazy Antics die set.  The mice were colored with W3 and W00 copic markers. I also stamped and die cut the images from the Love You A Latte and Birthday Before N’Afters stamp sets in the same way and then copic colored them with Y21, YR21 and R20 copic markers.  I die cut a rectangle to form the picnic blanket out of older Lawn Fawn plaid cardstock; the grass was die cut with Trinity Stamps Slimline Series: The Great Outdoors Borders & Builders die set using green cardstock I had in my stash.

To put the card together, I die cut a maze into the plaid cardstock and foam- and then added slider elements to the coffee cups prior to gluing all the parts together.  I stamped a sentiment on a banner and added a few sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!!
