You're the cream in my coffee

Hi blog friends,

Didn't think that you will see me again this quick huh?! ^_^

Talking about quick, this will have to be a quick post. As it is very very late and I should really be in bed by now!! Just want to share the card that I made for my husband tonight. It is not the usual Valentine colour but I like it!

I guess this is the quickest card I ever made too! I think I am getting used to clean and simple styled cards. All the stamped images, including sentiment, are from TPC Studio Coffee Cafe Clear Stamps set. I have paper piecing the coffee cup. Stamped the row of coffee beans in Brilliance Coffee Bean ink colour. (I am not sure about those coffee beans. I don't think they are straight!!) Then stamped the sentiment "You're the cream in my coffee" at the bottom and added gems on each side.

Here is a closer look of the main image.

I am entering this card to the following challenges:

Less is More: Week 54 One Layer Card with Stripes (I don't think I ever made a one layer card. It is hard to keep it to the basic. Hope paper piecing still count as one layer, if not feel free to remove my entry.)
*Edit: Just found out that "paper piecing is actually adding a layer as it can't really be regarded as an embellishment". Nevermind, first attempt. Now I know it. Will try again with one layer card next time.

Hope you have a great day and Happy Valentine's Day to you all!

  3. I guess paper piecing is actually adding a layer as it can't really be regarded as an embellishment... it is however, a fabulous card.
