Merry Cafe card for Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop
Today I am pleased to participate in the Ink & Inspiration Design Team Blog Hop. We are all featuring a project that are from the 2017 Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up!. I have chosen to use Merry Cafe stamp set for warm and cozy card for my coffee loving friends. This stamp set works so well with the Coffee Cafe’ Bundle in the Annual Catalog.

Creating an inked border by hand
By adding a hand drawn border to your project, there is a unique element that makes this project all your own.
I used a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to draw a border on the die cut square in this project. I had thought to add it with no markings but after asking my husband how the card was looking, he advised that it was in his words… “eh, it needs something”. After moving some things around and adding the border to the square, I went back in for a second opinion and he at once gave praises for the design. His eyes rested on the hand drawn border and gave me the thumbs up! It’s nice to have a critic that is honest and helps me to stretch my imagination.
Have fun visiting these friend’s blogs!
