A Bird's Eye View - CAS

Another card for the Coffee Lovers! My card was inspired by a photo of a bird's eye view of coffee cups but I cannot recall where it was.
Circles were die cut to represent three cups of dark brown (black) coffee, café au lait and coffee decorated with foamed milk in three different sizes. The cup handles were made on the trimmer and adhered to the circles. The completed cups of coffee were popped up on foam tape for dimension. They were adhered to ombre DSP, which had been adhered to brown cardstock. The hearts were stamped, ribbon added and the sentiment computer generated. The sentiment banner was also backed with foam tape. This was all adhered to a card base. The inside of the card was decorated with a strip of the ombre DSP mounted on brown cardstock.
