Coffee - Sloffee Break

A sloth is such a unique animal! The sloth on my coffee card has the right idea. He's deep in the forest where he makes a home in a tree. He has emerged from his sleep to peek out from his hiding place. 

Inspired by Double Trouble Challenge #97-B in partnership with Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch Challenge #533, I decided to add a coffee element with this cute sloth image and enter my card at the 2021 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. My card is entry #461.

Panels of cardstock and paper were trimmed to size and layered using double-stacked foam tape. The image was stamped and colored with Copic markers. After fussy cutting the image, it was added to the card with thin foam tape. In keeping with the sketch, I added two thin strips to the left side of the "circle" and instead of a bow, I added two leaves. The inside was lined with a panel of white cardstock and decorated with a few die-cut leaves.

The Double Trouble Challenge #97-B is a biweekly challenge, ending on Sunday evening, November 28, 2021. Try Stampin' on Tuesday #533 is also a biweekly challenge and closes on the same date. Because I used a "coffee stamp" this card was entered at the 2021 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. The Blog Hop will close on Friday, November 19, 2021.

  1. So sweet! You've picked the perfect designer paper with your little sloth! :)

  2. That sloth is adorable - I really like how you set him deep in the woods, away from the front of the card. Nice work!

  3. The substitute for the twine and ribbon is creative and goes excellent with the background paper... love the sloth peeking out of the cup. Adorable and fun card.

  4. Your sloth image is perfect peeking out of the cup, and I like how you used the sketch, funny sentiment too!
