Love You a Latte Card [CFC #49]

Here's a "Love You a Latte" Mother's Day card for all those coffe-lovin' mommas. This card is based on the CAS-ual Fridays sketch challenge:

It's the first time I've used the Papertrey Heart-2-Heart die and stamp set. It's a smaller and cheaper set, but still fun to play with!

I cut a heart shape out of paper and then used the negative space as a mask for the dotted texture stamp. Then cut around the dotted heart leaving a white margin to set it off. Originally I used the negative shape as a mask to sponge ink, but the coffee cups didn't look too good on that blurred background. The graphic dotted background was much cleaner and better.

Here's another version, which I may like better. 

How fun to see what everyone does with the same sketch, love those challenges!

Thanks for looking!

Supplies used:
PTI Heart-2-Heart stamp and die set
PTI melon berry ink
PTI banner die
PTI bloom builders die (the dots from the center of the small flower)
AC texture stamp

  6. I really love both of these-the first is my fav because of the banner flapping in the breeze! So sweet and personal with your own handwriting...or is that a stamp? The tiny circles spelling out MOM are too cute!
