Another card for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers' Summer Blog Hop.
I started with the cup and steam cut with the Cricut and the Joy of the Season cartridge at 1.75 inches.
I chose a blue card stock for the background layer. I used Tim Holtz Distress Stains to add color to it with the Mini Coffee Splotch stencil by Rebekah Meier for The Crafters Workshop. I used Vintage Photo, Tea Dye and a bit of Tattered Rose distress stains on the blue applied with a sponge through the stencils and applied directly to the paper. I selected a warm toned peach colored card to which I applied Tea Dye and Tattered Rose to tone down the color.
I added a length of taupe seam binding to give the cup a place to sit. I ran double sided tape across the blue layer then added pleats to the ribbon as I pressed down onto the adhesive.
I did touched the edges of the cup and steam with a bit of Vintage Photo Distress Stain applied with the sponge.
