Thanks a latte

Hi there,!

I just saw a challenge over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog and thought it would be fun to participate in it. Haven't participated in their challenges before, but I do have a lot of their images, and have a few projects not shown anywhere yet, so why not?

For this project I've used the "Thanks a latte" digi stamp, which is adorable, and could quite honestly just as well be me and one of my sisters having a coffee together.

Making this project turned out to be a bit of a challenge, as the table cloth and I did not exactly agree to where the pleats should be, so I ended up cutting that part away. It's still a very cute project, I think.
The background with the coffee beans is actually a napkin. Fun story there. One day on Facebook I watched a video of a lady who was ironing napkins onto cardboard paper (plastic wrap in between) and it looked so easy. Of course I had to try. I had some suitable (and very different) napkins among which was this coffee bean napkin I got at a birthday party once.
Doesn't it look awesome? I cut out a few extra coffee beans and added them with glue pads for height and I had a few coffee coloured pearls for the corners as well. I love how it all turned out.
That's all for now.
Be happy crafting.
This project is entered into this challenge:


  1. Such a cool card! I love that you used a napkin. I smiled at your bit about the tablecloth pleats....I think the design of this is lovely and I would never have known that you cropped the image out of necessity if you hadn't said anything. :-) Thanks for joining us at Tiddly Inks.

  2. Lovely card and awesome idea! Thanks for joining us over at Tiddly Inks and good luck!
