Happy St. Patrick's Day

While I was making cards for the Coffee Spring blog hop,
I looked for some inspiration on the web and found
this fun coffee sentiment and kept it to make a card to wish 
all my friends a Happy St.Patrick's Day.

I used:
Michael Strong's coffee cup
Club Scrap coffee ring stamp
bistre powder
clover stencil by clearscraps.com
vintage imageby Create with TLC

For the background I used first some natural and yellow
bistre powder. When alldry,i stamped the coffee rings
in brown ink and after that I took the clover template
and a green inkpad to add the clover to the background.

Then I stamped the coffee  on brown/golpaper
with gold embossing powder.I noticed the heart
 with the 2 coffee beans. On a separate green piece of paper
I stamped the heart 4 times and also embossed these
with gold embossing powder. I cut the hearts out and formed
 the clover on the cup with a small sticky pearl in the heart of
the flower. I also added a stem from the left over scrap.

The sentiment is printed out with the computer
and cut to size for the card. Made it look like a ticked
by using a corner punch and adding some ink all around.

This is the inside of the card with avintage image
from Create with TLC.

Hope you all have a fun day 
and thanks for stopping by.

Have a creative day!

Wat een leuke kaart is weer dit geworden. Mooi die achtergrond en super gevonden om van de koffieboontjes een klavertje te maken.
Happy St. Patrick's day!
