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

  3. Where did you get the latte stamps?

  4. Super cute and I love the little letter details :) Thanks for playing at CAS-ual Fridays!

  5. 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!
