My last two cards have been coffee colored so I wanted to try something a bit more vibrant.
To create the plaid background I busted out my brand new Sketched Stripes background stamp set from Concord & 9th. It's so much fun! I used Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist inks from Stampin Up! I cut the word "coffee" out with the Stitched Alphabet dies from My Favorite things. I set the plaid letters aside and cut them again out of the Berry Burst cardstock and white. I glued the white and Berry Burst layers together.
I adhered the plaid piece on to a Lemon Lime Twist panel with a layer of foam tape. This was then glued onto a white card base. I put glue in the open letter areas and carefully added the letters in. They are slightly recessed since the base is popped up on foam tape.
I really wanted the card to say "Coffee Understands" but I searched through my coffee sets and a few others and couldn't find any with the word "understands". So I went to the internet, found a new font that I thought went well and printed it directly onto another piece of the lime cardstock. I cut it out and glued it directly onto the plaid piece. Of course, I had to add sequins for a little sparkle and I called it done. #springsummer2018clh
