Customisable Coffee Cup Sentiments Card

Hi everyone, Taheerah here wishing you a happy Friday!

Coffee culture. There's no avoiding it. Whether you're a fan of the black stuff or can't stand the taste of it, we all almost certainly known someone who's a coffee fan. Personally it's far too bitter for my sweet tooth, but I love the smell of it, and of course the scientist in me loves the whole science of coffee making.

The Waffle Flower Crafts Coffee Cup Sentiments stamp set is the perfect salute for the coffee lover in your life. I love the idea of customising your sentiment by ticking the various options on the cup! I couldn't wait to put this set to use:

I love how this turned out! Pretty cool, right?!

I started by stamping the sentiment part of the design using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I added my ticks using the same ink but also tapping my stamp into the Versafine Clair Ink in the colour Twilight for a bit more of an 'inky' pen look!

I wanted the card to resemble a 'close-up' of the cup, or at least it being seen from a side angle, so I stamped the circle partially off the edge of my card for a fun detail!

I wanted to show how easy it is to create the look of a coffee cup without needing any dies. So I trimmed a few strips of black cardstock, adhered them together to resemble a lid, then adhered that to the top of my base to finish off the look! There's a lot of white space between the sentiment and the 'lid' because it's a large cup. *smile*

I'd love to hear what you think of this card. Is there someone you know who'd love to receive it? Thanks for stopping by!
