Thank You Card for Freshly Made Sketches

It’s great to be back! And it’s great to be featuring this thank you card, made with the new Coffee Café stamp set, for Freshly Made Sketches.
Coffee Cafe Thank You CardWe just returned from showing Jackie in Canada for three weeks, and I needed several thank you cards to send out to my new Canadian friends.  I thought Narelle’s sketch would be perfect for showcasing the adorable Coffee Café set.  It’s easy, thanks to the coordinating Coffee Cups framelits.  I hope you like this cute little thank you card a latte!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips … Thank You Card
This finished card measures 4-1/4″ wide by 5-1/2″ long.

Easy peasy are the key words to describe this thank you card. The stamping involved is a breeze.

Close Up of Cup on Thank You CardThe greeting was stamped in Garden Green, the lid in Early Espresso, and the little hearts are Cherry Cobbler.  Since this was the first time I inked up this set, I rubbed over the lid and sentiment oval with a pencil eraser to help the ink adhere better, thus providing a better image.

Linen Thread Bow on Thank You Card

To add texture, I added a Linen Thread bow, and popped the sentiment up on a Corrugated Elements oval.  Cherry Cobbler Enamel Shapes add a “pop” of color.

This card is heading to Keith, who not only opened his home up to two human and one four-legged guest, but he also introduced us to that Canadian staple…Tim Horton’s! You can’t beat the apple fritters.  Nearly every morning, we would walk the dogs the short distance to the coffee shop, and two of us would hold dogs while the third person would go in and order.  Then we would make our way to the park across from his home and enjoy our goodies.   I am sure he will understand the significance of my design. Of course, this daily routine certainly did not help my diet!

Coming Up

Over the next few days, I will be sharing my Canadian adventures with you.  Expect plenty of pictures of Jackie the Boxer, as well as Niagara Falls.  Plus, I’ll be designing more thank you cards which I’ll feature AND I will be sharing my list of retired stamp sets and framelits. Of course, as always, if you ever have any questions about the cards I create or the products I use, I am only an email away!  Until next time…

  2. What a darling thank you card. Love the little hearts on the cup. I look forward to hearing more about your Canadian adventure.

  3. A lovely card, Ann. Keith will like it for sure! Cannot wait to hear about trip and Jackie. What a time you folks had.

  4. I love your patterns and the texture. The red enamel on top of some of the paper’s hearts is a cute look! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  5. I’m glad you were introduced to the Canadian way of (YUM!) apple fritters & coffee. The cad is simple, but very nice. Sometimes we often work so hard to make an over-the- top card, & then comes your card. Love it!!! (your Canadian friend!)

  6. Love those little enamel shapes tucked in. Darling cup of coffee!

  7. Connie Snowberger

    Your card is adorable, Ann, but what I really love is your color palette! Those are wonderful choices for the type of card this is. Looking forward to reading about your adventures with Jackie!

    Yep, I like the card a latte! I am not a coffee drinker either but I am getting this bundle as I have friends who do and my FIL loves getting gift cards so he can have coffee with his buddies. Sometimes he even treats them since he has a card. Of course it needs a gift card holder made with this set. There is also a tea bag tag in the framelits that can be added to the cup as well. There are so many wonderful samples using this set out there and yours is one of them complete with the little hearts! Keith will love the card I am sure.

  9. Even though I am not a fan of coffee, I love what you created! Have a great week!
