I <3 You More Than Coffee

I enjoy a good cup o’ joe as much as the next person, but there are some people in my life – yours too, I’m sure – that really know their stuff when it comes to the almighty bean.  One of my favorite sets by Papertrey features this cute little stack of cups and a variety of coffee-themed sentiments:


Here’s the deets on the creation: I took three separate Hero Arts Shadow Inks (Soft Sand, Soft Brown, and Cup  O’ Joe – how fitting!) to create the ombre effect on PTI kraft cardstock.  I was going to be all anal about it, but the slight crookedness lends to a jittery look which imho is perfect!  I found this doily image on the back of some patterned paper I had, die cut a circle around it, and inked in Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain.  The cups are colored in Copics, and coated in a healthy dose of Glossy Accents (and also on top of the center hearts).

I think this could be a great card for either male or female recipient, something that can be very hard to do! 

So what do you think, does this card set you ‘abuzz’?
