Carolina Girl (Cely)
When I saw Under A Cherry Tree post a card like this, I just had to CASE.  It made "me" happy!  The coffee mug came from Lettering Delights "Love you a Latte"set.  I didn't have the font she used  to make the white frame, so I made my own svg.

The idea behind the card is to make it look like the menu you see on a chalkboard inside and sometimes outside a little cafe.  I also added the pretend chalk piece hanging on the side.  I could send this to at least 50 people I know "just because". The first one is already designated to my friend Cheryl who has been helping me out while my husband is in the hospital; it can also be used as a Valentine card.

A2 vertical, brad, svg, white inking, sun punch, pop-ups for dimension

  4. Wonderful happy card and it does look like a menu board with the 'specials' on it, in this card I guess that would be a hot mug of coffee! Fab job! I love your blog layout with the binder effect - neat!
