2nd Card for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Here's my second card for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  You'll find all the details here.  TONS of prizes to be won if you link up your cards!
The rules?
When: Friday, September 15 – Friday, September 22 
Time: 6 am pacific
THEME: FALL
USE: coffee, tea, or cocoa images
Here's my fall card:
I made a floating image window on my card using the Rectangle Peek a Boo die from MFT.  I added a piece of tulle between the layers of DP and card base and adhered my coffee grinder die cut with foam dots over the tulle. I added a reverse die cut of the grinder to the back so you don't see the foam dots when you open the card. I fussy cut another Peek a Boo Frame out of Dark Chocolate card and layered it over the opening with foam dots.  The leaf is die cut out of a piece of thin wood.  The sentiment is from a coffee set  and the grinder is from a coffee die set - both sold on Ali Express.

You will find a wonderful YouTube video by Jennifer McGuire on the floating image window design here
Now it's time to check out all of the other fall coffee/tea cards linked up at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog!

I love your Autumn leaves and antique coffee grinder. I'm blessed to own three antique coffee grinders, and I LOVE them so much. They were my Grandpa's from years gone by. This card is AWESOME, girl!
Blessings,

Love the combination of autumn leaves and the old time coffee grinder. Makes me think that summer is over and it's time to spend more time indoors with hot drinks (tea in my case), good books, card-making, etc.

Ann said...

Julia,
I've never done business with Ali Express. Is it legit? I mean, it lists a small coffee themed clear set for .99 cents?? Just being cautious!! Please email me if you can. Thanks!! Love your card!!!
