Festive Friday: Coffee Cafe

Apr 6, 2018 | Encouragement Cards | 0 comments

Do your part for Earth Day! Recycle some paper and make some great cards!

Earth Day is on April 22nd. That’s why we thought we’d pick it as our festivity for the latest Festive Friday Challenge. Of course, you could always just make a design that focuses on the color GREEN to participate, but adding in a little recycled-something would work too!

Play along at the Festive Friday Challenge - Earn Fest Points for free stuff! Find us @festivefridaychallenge or festivefridaychallenge.com. New challenges every other Friday! #cardchallenge

The great thing about Festive Friday and/or challenges is that you don’t have to use the elements in a concrete way. Like Earth Day. I highly doubt you’re worried about getting all your Earth Day cards out in the mail on time. BUT, you can use the idea of Earth Day to inspire your designs. That’s why my Coffee Cafe project represents both the idea of Earth day and Green!

Last week at the Paper Party during my weekly live broadcast (called Running With Scissors), I shared an easy way to use up scraps. I worked up a whole bunch of different sample panels with 3/4″ strips of DSP adhered to a solid panel of Whisper White. It really is a great way to come up with unique backgrounds, and use up scraps (instead of tossing them)!

The total bonus to this design is that I already had the coffee cup stamped and diecut as a leftover from a previous project!

You can earn the written tutorial for this design for FREE just by playing along with Festive Friday and earning Fest Points! You have to register an account over on that website, but it’s super easy! Then, just play for points! I hope to see you play along with us!
