Simple Warhol (ish) Coffee Note Cards With Uplifting Messages



Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday?  This post was supposed to go live yesterday but the day got away from me.  For Day 5 of the Spring | Summer 2018 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop I wanted to share these simple "coffee-themed" Warhol(ish) note cards that I made for someone in town that owns a small cafe.  She told me she wanted 4 small note cards, with a coffee theme, and a simple motivational type of message on each card.  And she wanted them in English.
  

And this is what I came up with.


I started with 4" square cards as my base.  Using this Coffee and Donut digital paper, I printed 4 designs and adhered one design to each card front.  I cut 4 pieces of white cardstock using my Stitched Squares set by Gina Marie Designs.  On each of the pieces I stamped the coffee cup from Coffee 1 by Anthony's Paper Craft in different distress ink colors - Peacock Feathers, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, and Ground Espresso.  I tried my best to match the paper design to each distress ink color.



I adhered each of the coffee cups to a piece of mirrored cardstock, as close to their color as possible.  Then I adhered that to the card front with foam tape- to give them some height.  

The final task was to find motivational phrases - which I found using Tim Holtz's Small Talk Stickers from his idea-ology line!  My friend came over and we picked out 4 that I adhered to the card fronts.  Two were on the mirrored cardstock and the other two went right on the card front!  Done!!



I really love how these came out.  The cups in the different colors on the bright papers....perfect!!  I'd love to know what you think.  Please leave me a comment below.  Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog and, until next time - 

Hugs from Brasil -
