Hello Friend

Hi there! Do you ever see a card out there in blogland, fall in love with it, and just know that you'll be reproducing it with similar supplies from your own stash as soon as you have a free hour to sit down and stamp? Well, I've had THIS CARD by the talented Jodi Collins bookmarked for almost a year now and finally found that free hour this week to sit down and CASE it!! And man, I'm so glad I did because I just love the way my card turned out!! I changed things up a bit, but my version was completely and totally inspired by Jodi's original fabulousness. Here's a look at my creation:

I went with a vertical card using a Kraft base, but still stamped my fun coffee cup images on crisp white cardstock. I also used different stamps than Jodi. My coffee cups are from Verve's Better With You set, but I still colored them very much like Jodi's originals. The cute little solid heart on the sleeve is from the smaller coordinating Sip and Savor set. And the sentiment is from the fun little Friendly Phrases set. Like Jodi, I added a simple strand of Baker's Twine around the top of the card as a finishing touch and was done!

I have a few friends with birthdays coming up and can't wait to tuck a Starbuck's gift card inside and give this card to someone!

Every time I see a card with coffee cups I always think how nice it would be to receive one with a Starbucks gift card in it. I love all the "java" colors you used and the baker's twine. Very cute card!
