Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Coffee Cafe

Hi Stampers, It’s Alternate Monday day.  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

  • Stamp your Sentiment onto the Whisper White banner in Garden Green Ink using the happy birthday from Bird Banter ( 3/4 x 3-1/2 inches)
  • Cut a tail with your Banner Triple Punch and add a Linen Thread Bow to the left side
  • Attach the sentiment to the front of the card, tucking in under the cup and on top of the square art piece
  • I decided I just had to add the Tutti Frutti Soft Sky sequins and a Old Olive Glitter dot to the splashes for added pop
