Coffee Cup Card

My friend Bronwyn asked me if I'd help her make a template for a coffee cup card, so she could do an SU tutorial for her blog. We spent yesterday afternoon together and eventually came up with this:

I learnt a few more things while playing around in MTC making this. I'm loving that software more & more every time I use it! We found an image and I pixel traced it, then set about cleaning it up and creating all the bits to make the card. The file has the card base and the templates to cut the DP. Please visit Bronwyn's blog to purchase the template and tutorial...it's very reasonably priced :)

For my card I decided to go with a recycled coffee cup look :)  Everything is SU except the stamped sentiment and the embossing folder. Card base is Crumb Cake, lid is Early Espresso, fancy tag is Very Vanilla and I've used SU DP for the cozy band. All pieces have inked edges and the embossing folder was inked before inserting the CS. I was sooooo impressed to find the sentiment stamp in my stash as I'd already decided I wanted to put "warm wishes" on the front...how lucky was that!! AND it fit inside the SU frame stamp...amazing!

My card has been cut with the MTC file I created. For anyone with a cutter & MTC, the file can be found for free in the forum discussions at Make-The-Cut.

Thanks for looking.....have a wonderful day :)
