Coffee Card for a Guy

It's SPRINGTIME which means it's time for another Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop!!!




For each blog hop, we get a free digi image from JessicaLynnOriginals  But I also fell in love with this spring release from Jessica and had to snap it up to make a card for a guy. He will love the sentiments on it.  





I digitally colored this image.  After printing, I added quite a bit of additional color with color pencils to create the effect of "wood" planks. 

I also used Stampin' Up dark brown cardstock for the card base and a striped paper which had no identifying label.   Various bakers' twine in matching colors added the finishing touch. 

I placed the card on a piece of "woodgrain" paper for my photo.  I'm wondering if that is a distraction from the actual card.  

This one I'm entering in

Coffee Lovers Bloghop.  Entry #3  I'm #656

Simply a great card for a guy. Love the digi images and how you've coloured them digitally and with pencils. I remember that striped paper from several years back and it was so versatile and a good choice for masculine cards and projects. Thanks so much for joining us for our Masculine Anything Goes WWC111 Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Love this card! Such a brilliant idea to hang cups from a wooden board and the sentiment quote looks totally fabulous split up on them too. Thanks for playing at The Male Room.
