Woo Hoo - I love all of the Coffee Lovers Hops - because it gives me a chance to feature COFFEE cards on my blog. This one was especially fun. I got together with a group of friends to play with our stamping, and my friend Lori re-introduced me to the napkin technique. I've got to tell you - it's probably been 20+ years since I've done this - but now I am again hooked.
Above are some of the napkins we played with, and below is a section after I've adhered it to cardstock. We found out of most napkins you can get four panels.
So I cut down one of the quarters and layered it on cardstock to get the base for this card. Then I cut apart another quarter - by cutting each of the cups out. I adhered them layering from the top down, then added some pretty pearls to finish it off.
The inside used up the small top piece of cup I did not need for the front. (oops - I added steam to the cup, but took this picture before. Will try and update if I get a chance tomorrow.)
Here's a side view - hard to tell - but the top cup is just the first image, the one below it is cut out and layered flat, the one below that layered with one dimensional layer, and the final bottom cup layered with two dimensional layers.
This gives dimensions to the cups and the illusion of cups actually stacked inside of each other.
I hope you like it - be sure to check out all the other amazing cards on this hop by going HERE. Leave a comment if you have a minute. I'll be drawing from all comments for a cardstock giveaway!! ~Maureen
