Challenge #437 at Shopping Our Stash is......I Need a Cup Of Coffee

 And writing this post I think I really need more than one. For some reason beyond my thinking I decided to make a masculine card, WHY? they are difficult at the best of times, nothing seemed to be going together and if it had been earlier in the week I would have scrapped the idea and went for my second choice. So at Shopping Our Stash we want to see a coffee themed card, here is mne.

The stamp I used had never seen ink and I'm sure it is well over a year old, well I haven't shopped much in a year. The DSP is way older than that,  probably 4 or 5 years old, I'm always looking for masculine papers.  Because of the dark brown I added a layer of white and the Happy Birthday was cut 3 times and layered. 

Close up to show the definition of the layering.

Finished the inside with a scrap of dsp and some die cut coffee beans from a coffee die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs. (in hindsight should have use the whole set)

Thanks for stopping by today and head over to the MAIN BLOG and check out the projects the rest of the design team have made.

I just love this card!
It's the perfect masculine / birthday / coffee combo!

This is an awesome masculine card! The paper really is perfect for the image, and the die cut sentiment has just the right oomph.

Such a fun card, Barb! Love the retro coffee man image and how you finished the inside! Great paper too! I agree, the masculine cards are tough, but you nailed this one!
