I've had a busy week but finally found time to get into my craft room and make a card! I'm using a new Coffee Set that Claire released from Waltzingmouse in June.
I needed some retirement cards for my stash - and the Coffee Set has this great sentiment - "Retirement, the world's longest Coffee break". There's also a coordinating Coffee Die set that makes it easy peasy to cut out the shapes. There are several different shaped mugs/cups in the set - I used this more masculine looking one stamping the little design (a separate stamp) in black.
I used strips of Idea-ology Commute Tissue tape and Film Strip Ribbon - adhering them with tiny staples. The sentiment square and cup are both up on foam dots. I added some brown sequins to finish it off!
I stamped a sentiment from Putting on the Ritz on the inside.
I used the latest Freshly Made Sketches for my design.Stamps: Coffee Set and Putting on the Ritz - Waltzingmouse
