I had so much fun trying to adapt this card, I originally was going to do just a coffee cup shaped card but couldn't really see how to do anything much with it. I then came up with the idea of doing the easel card and instead of doing a plain square for the back panel, I decided to do a coffee cup. I used layers of decoupage to create the dimensional look and found a way to incorporate the gift card into the coffee cup.
As the bottom needs to have something for the whole card to keep it's shape, I chose to to use my sister's favourite cake and put a plate on the bottom. To make the plate have a bit of dimension, I decoupaged it but also I added a bit of distressing to the edge of the plate and this was my 1st attempt at distressing.
The papers that I used in this card were from the Forever Friends For You collection, and the Die Cut With A View Snack Stack paper.
I hope you like it and would really appreciate your comments as am submitting it for one of my pieces for my Unit 3 that I am doing.
Love Bex xxxx
