Coffee Chick

Hello, everyone!  I'm back with my second card today for the 2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! Check out the link for details on how you can take part!  My card features the adorable Coffee Chick from Gerda Steiner Designs, who is one of the generous Super Sponsors of the hop (thank you, Gerda!).


I coloured the image with markers and fussy-cut so I could pop her up on foam tape.  I embossed yellow cardstock and die-cut some patterned and burlap paper so I could assemble a background according to the sketch below.  I stamped a sentiment and embellished the card with some purple gems.

Digital stamp:  Gerda Steiner Designs Coffee Chick
Clear stamp:  Personal Impressions Everyday Cat (sentiment)
Die:  Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rounded Squares
Patterned paper:  DCWV Painted Pastels, Crafts Burlap
Embossing folder: Couture Creations Crazy Daisy
Other:  Gems

My card design was inspired by Sketch N Scrap Card Sketch 170, created by sketch artist Lisa:
