Use the shiny Rinea papers to create a weaving background that mixes bright red and chocolate brown with the white cardstock. Distress the base card with Memento Desert Sand inkpad to create a frame that comes in contrast with the white cardstock. The same Memento color is also used to color the edges of the “Espresso Yourself” stamp with Mboss embossing powder in Black that creates a high contrast on the design.
Time: 1 hour
On a 4 ½ x 6 ½ inch piece of watercolor paper, mark horizontal lines in various heights. Continue with vertical one that always comes in pairs, marking one entry and one exit point where the Rinea paper stripes will go through.
Cut the vertical marks to make openings.
Cut stripes of the Rinea double-sided foil paper, Ruby starstruck and Mocka glossy, and pass them through the previously made openings.
Color the front of the base card around it with Memento Desert Sand inkpad to make a frame.
Turn the back of the decorated with Rinea papers watercolor paper and ut stripes of the Tear It! Tape to secure both the Rinea papers and then the whole of it on the card base.
Stamp the “Espresso Yourself” stamp or alternative coffee-theme stamp with VersaMark, cover with Mboss Embossing Powder in Black and heat set.
Distress around the stamped image with Memento Desert Sand color and a sponge dauber. Add the ribbon, the spoon, and the coffee beans.
