Coffee and Friends

Today I created something a little different: a shaker card using coffee grounds in the shaker area.  This was a fun project and easy to do.  One of the tutorials I like for making shaker cards is found at StampTV.

Wonky Squares by Spellbinders were used to create my window.  The sentiment in the inside of the window (which says: Coffee & Friends are the perfect blend) is by Unity Stamps and the coffee pot image is from the Kind Thoughts set by Stampin' Up.  (It's not too easy to get a good photo without something reflecting off the acetate window.)

The shaker window was adhered to a subtly patterned piece of brown cardstock, which I then wrapped with twine.  The blue base cardstock edges were embossed using my Scor-Pal before adhering the shaker window layer.

This is so cool! I've never made a shaker card, though I've seen them, and this is the first one I've seen with coffee---very very neat!
