Have been waiting to share this card with you for a couple of weeks now, but couldn't before today. It wouldn't be quite right for my daughter to see her card on my blog before her birthday, would it? Anyway, it's today, so here it is. I love it, it's all chocolaty and lush, mmmmm.
I designed it with my CraftArtist Professional software, using the Cocoa Latte digikit. I've always loved the look of that digikit, but couldn't decide what to do with it, then it came to me. Rocker cards are quite popular at the moment, so I thought I'd do one, or two....... because I couldn't stop there. I liked it so much I decided to make my friend one for her birthday too.
I used a thick heavy card, about 350gsm, for the rocker base. The rest was printed on my trusty supersmooth, 220gsm and Grand Big Scalloped Circles to cut all the shapes. I distressed everything with Tim Holtz Antique Linen, which added to the choccy feeling. All the embellishments are part of the digi kit. I cut the straw out and stuck it through a hole in the card, so it looked like it was in the hot chocolate. The flower I printed twice, one a bit smaller than the other, then layered them and finished it with a cloth covered button. Finally, the tag was fastened to the coffee cup handle using a piece of red ribbon.
To finish the card off I put a circle shaped greeting on the back. The one drawback, if you stand the card on a shiny surface, it collapses. A bit like Bambi on Ice. Small price to pay though, eh? Hope you like them and thanks for dropping by.
I have entered this card into the following challenges:
