#728 – Seize the Birthday – Coffee or Tea

Hello and welcome to yet another new challenge at Seize the Birthday! This time we have the optional topping of ‘Coffee or Tea’, meaning you can join us with a birthday project carrying a coffee or tea theme, or, if it is not your thing, you are free to join us with any birthday project at all – your choice!

Seize The Birthday - The Toppings

Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes

I, of course, chose to go with the topping. And here’s what I created –


I first stamped the flowery wreath on a white card panel, then die cut the coffee cup. I then added a backing to the panel, stacked the coffee cup die cut with some more die cuts, then replaced it. I made sure to add lesser die cuts to the inner parts of the die cut, so they are all at different levels. Finally, I trimmed the panel to an almost square panel.

I then added BnW damask pattern paper on another piece of cardstock, and layered the two panels on a white card base. Finally, I added sentiment and the heart.

Here’s the list of products I used –

Winnie & Walter In Bloom: Victoria’s Very Merry Flowers
Paper Smooches Cozy Coffee
Paper Smooches Warm Wishes
Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders
pattern paper from Recollections Black and White paper pad

I am joining the following challenges with my card –
