Love You A Latte...

I'm back with another Valentine's card. This one for my hubby... hard to believe we're working on fifteen years! My how the time passes. The man loves coffee, and I thought the "Love You A Latte" sentiment was perfect for him this year.

This card is so yummy to me! Doesn't it just makes you think of Valentine Chocolates? I can almost taste them! I used this weeks sketch at Card Patterns as my starting point. I don't have any good coffee stamps so I had to make due. I found the image through google image and used my MTC to cut some stamp material with my Cricut. I had been wanting to try that out for a long time. I must confess I'm not to crazy with it's performance. The material doesn't accept ink to well. But I'm determined to use up some of my stash this year!

I embossed the brown background paper with my swirls cuttlebug embossing folder. I used Microsoft Word to print out the sentiment, then stamped my image and colored it in with my Prisma markers. Put it all together with just a few cross stitches added, and I think I have a good card. Not to girly I don't think. Now I'm just thankful that my husband doesn't watch my blog!
