I have a rare masculine card to share today. It is all too easy for me to concentrate on making cards that appeal to me – lots of florals basically LOL. However, I do need some variety in my card stash, and so I set out to use the versatile Altenew Coffee Love set to create this masculine card, or equally a card simply for a lover of nice coffee. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.
On Arches cold pressed watercolour card, I stamped the coffee pot repeatedly in Versafine Onyx Black ink to create a pattern. I then loosely watercoloured the pots and also the area around them. For the background, I choose deep, rich coffee colours – Quinacridone Gold, Hematite Burnt Scarlet Genuine and Lunar Black and let them mix and blend together to give the look of ground coffee. To complete the distressed look, I splattered the panel liberally with a solution of Perfect Pearls.
I stamped a sentiment from the Coffee Love set in black ink on a Nested Circle of Ivory card and punched a small hole which I threaded through with an unusual safety pin I upcycled. I added the panel to an Ivory card base, wrapped twine around and then added the sentiment circle with foam adhesive. For a finishing touch, I added a trio of Nuvo crystal droplets in Sugared Almond and Dark Walnut.
