Coffee & Friends Make the Perfect Blend

Today's card is a Large card for those like me,
 who like to write a lot!  
It measures 7" wide and 5" tall.

I really liked the beautiful poppy in the Polka Dot' Orchard's package, Flowers in Bloom.  So I duplicated it twice and grouped the three flowers together, then laid them on their side.  I grabbed the single cup from the 'It's Your Day' package and layered it on top to cover the bare stems.  Then drew in a shelf and added an ornamental piece in the front.  I could have then reduced the entire image, but I wanted to be able to color the flowers as if they were life size, so off to the printer. 

I used Copic markers for coloring**and also used the basic bold coloring technique of 2-3 markers instead of my normal 4-7 per color shading. Then I die cut the large image with the biggest size of the Pink & Main Stitched Oval die set.  I made my card base out of a heavy weight white card stock to a 7" x 5" top fold base and added the light orange stripped matting first, then the oval shaped colored image.  Since I wanted the ribbon and bow to be vertical, I laid it across the card base, where it would go, then glued the top mat and image piece to the card base.  After that set, then I was able to complete the bow tying and adding the cross sticker to the cup.

Thanks for coming by today and I hope you enjoyed how I mixed several digital packages together.

  1. What a wonderful card Pam - love that you have the poppies in a horizontal position and on a shelf!

  2. Once again a great card. Turning the flowers side ways and making a shelf for the cup. Love the addition of the cross on the cup
