Coffee is better than reality card

Coffee is better than reality card

Hi there, Christine here. I have a winter card for you today using the hilarious sentiment and image from the Coffee Gnome stamp set. This gnome is hands down my favorite from the entire sets of gnomes that came out in the new release as he is pretty much all hat and beard with some little shoes sticking out.  I decided to put him in a snow storm where I felt the sentiment "May your coffee kick in before reality does" really applies.

This card is a mini slimline size, 6 inches by 3 inches- so the perfect size to use up any 6x6 cardstock you have. I had some perfect cardstock (My Favorite Things) and glitter paper that I die cut (Trinity Stamps, Mini Slimline).  I added a few snowflake embellishments (Trinity Stamps) and some glitter paste in the right places (his nose, hat and shoes- as you can see above- Cosmic Shimmer Ultra Sparkle Paste).

I die cut the image from the Coffee Gnome stamp set using my Brother ScanNcut2 and set to work coloring him with some simple copic coloring: hat was R43 & R46, pajamas was R46, beard was E34 &E31, coffee was E31, shoes were C5 & C3 and coffee mug was B97 & B91.

I hope that you will try this card out- it was so much fun to create.  Thank you for stopping by!
