Java Great Day

Challenge #276 – Here’s to Beverages! & PP594 – A Theme Challenge from Anne Marie
showing Gate fold

This card came about because I had made a mistake on a previous one (for a graduation) and I didn’t want to waste the CS. It was already cut, scored and had the white triangle shapes adhered, which is where the mistake occurred, as I had them in the wrong place for the original design. As I had the DSP sitting on my desk I decided to add it to the white triangles and then it sat there for a day or two. Yesterday I saw that the challenge at As You See It was a beverage one and this morning the reminder for Paper Players showed that it too is for beverages or food. The little mug die cut is from Trinity Stamps and was a gift in my last order. I paper pieced the white cup frame with more DSP and added it to the card front as you see. Using a gold pen I added the indication of steam and from an older GKD set I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it. Even using the magic bag I still get the powder where I don’t want it and the camera always picks up the specks. I added the gold embellishments, from Trinity Stamps, to finish the card. It is a small card only three and half inches high but it works and was a good way to use up the CS.

Thanks for spending time with me today.

    1. You know me, I don’t waste it if I think I can redeem it somehow. The original card was a cap and gown and I managed to put the collar of the gown on the wrong way which is how I ended up with this piece.

  6. Two things you can never go wrong with: coffee and a “punny” sentiment. Such a lovely card! Thanks so much for joining us the week over at The Paper Players!
