Coffee Lovers Blog hop - card 1

Hello there friends!  Today I'm sharing my first card that I created for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog hop.

You can find all of the details on how to play along and link up HERE.

My card uses I Like You a Latte from Polka Dot Orchard and can be purchased HERE.

I thought this would make a really cute shaped card so that's what I did!  

I sized it to be a little bit smaller than an A2 sized card and printed it out on Copic friendly cardstock.  Then I traced around it, leaving a bit of a border.   I folded my cardstock in half and cut on the pencil lines giving me a shaped card base.

I colored the main coffee cup using Copic markers.  

Purples: V09, 17, 15, 12
Pink: RV32, 32
Grays: C3, 1, 0, 00, W3, 1, 0, 00
I carefully cut it out along the lines.  Then I went around the edges with a black marker.  Before I adhered it to the shaped base, I colored the edges of the base with the lightest purple Copic.  

To complete the card I printed out the sentiment with some of the coffee beans.  I colored in the beans with the same purple Copics and left the sentiment uncolored.

Thanks for stopping by!
