Welcome friends!  It's another beautiful day!  I'm sitting here with my windows open drinking my coffee and watching my son play before we have to leave for school in a little bit.  All is well in my world right now!  :)

Oh coffee, how I love you!  I don't know how I would survive without you!  Today's card is inspired by my love of coffee.

To create the shape card I used Damask Decor Cricut cartridge.  It's on button 30 and I used the shift feature.  I sized it at 5" and welded them together in Cricut Craft Room.  Then I used the same cut about a quarter of an inch smaller and cut 2 for the inside and outside mats.

I ran the mat through my cuddlebug using the Wicker Weave folder and lightly inked it with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  The coffee cup came from the Love You a Latte Lite Cricut cartridge.  It's coffee cup 2 on button 15 and I used Cricut Craft Room to hide the steam so I could just use the cup and sized it to 3 1/4".  I adhered it with 1 layer of foam tape to give a little dimension.  The word art stamp on the coffee cup is an Inkadinkado clear mini stamp called Friends Words.  The border stamp is a Maya Road stamp called Vintage Wallpaper and the Happy Birthday stamp is from a PaperTrey Ink set called Year-Round Puns.

I lighly inked the inside mat with the Walnut Stain distress ink again.  The sentiment is a My Creative Time set called Just a Little Note to Say...

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  This will be available in my Etsy shop for purchase.

I'll be back tomorrow with a quick home dec canvas project.  Have a wonderful day!
