Free Printable Stacked Coffee Mugs Card


Today I have a fun card to share using more of the Heidi Swap cutouts.  Here I layered a sheet over patterned paper.  I am madly in love with these!  You will be seeing them lots and lots.  I found this awesome free printable image and pinned it HERE.  To color them I used my Colorbox stylus and sponged Distress Ink onto each mug going from the outside in, which created the highlights.  This is so easy and effective.


I love how deeply the inks go into the paper, but that the paper doesn't warp like when you use watercolor.  I used the same technique in the coffee tag below for the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  Click on my label Coffee Lovers Hop to see all of my coffee themed cards.


I found the circle image online and computer generated the other text.  This card seems to have so much dimension, but is actually quite flat for mailing.  Great bonus!
