Whatcha Bean Doin'?

Today is the final day of the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I only have one coffee card to submit although there is still time before the deadline to submit another!

Downloaded digital images were resized, printed on cardstock and then hand colored. Spatters and other grunge were added to a panel of cardstock, which was adhered to a red panel and the card base. The images were fussy cut and popped up on craft foam to add dimension. The sentiment was computer generated then adhered to a banner of coffee bean DSP. The inside was lined with a panel of cardstock and decorated with a strip of coffee bean DSP.

To be eligible for prizes, submit your coffee cards to Coffee Lovers
