Coffee Swirls

Wednesday, October 19, 2016


Sometimes the simplest cards take the longest time for me, but I sure had fun with this one!  I hadn't played with shaving cream for a long time and tonight I found a can and decided - why not?!   


The background behind the Simon Says coffee cut die cut was created using the shaving cream technique.  I embossed the base with Taylor Expressions brick embossing folder and cut the Verve coffee word die from shiny gold cardstock.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration...and the fun!
