Today I am sharing a card using a combination of older and newer styles. I love patterned paper – it’s something I love to look at, hoard, and buy! But I also love having fun with backgrounds using distress inks, watercolor paint, and monoprints.
My background was made on watercolor paper, splattering ink from my Kuretake Gansai Tambi paints. I had a large enough piece to stamp my coffee mug and heart, and my French press on the same paper. I cut them out using the matching dies. I cut the bottom part of the card at an angle for interest, and adhered it to some wild safari patterned paper. I also cut a circle frame from the same paper.
I popped up the two images inside the circle, and added a little “coffee love” sentiment along the bottom, following the angle. Finally, I added a layer of washi tape on my card base, as well as along the angled panel.
Old and new – and coffee is always in style! You can see more of my projects on my blog, Joy in a JAR. Thanks for stopping by today!
