Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – MFT Camp Create – Die Cuts – Perk Up Soon Card

Hello coffee, tea and chocolate lovers, and all you regulars and visitors, too! I’m glad to FINALLY be joining the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!


If you’re a regular at the Coffee Lovers Blog Hops and haven’t been following me, you’re probably surprised that I’m just now posting my first project. Well, my hard drive crashed a few days ago and I finally borrowed a computer so I can get to posting a couple of the cards I had made. Needless to say, I probably won’t be able to post a card each day this time and I won’t do a blog candy post unless I have my computer back to follow up in a timely manner. (Maybe y’all’ll want to start a card writing campaign to my tech guy. lol!)


I’ve been attending My Favorite Things Camp Create summer camp online and am just now catching up on posting the cards I made, the next two with the Coffee Lovers Hop in mind.. In the craft tent on day 4, the theme was Delightful Die Cutting where they showed partial die cutting. I also kept in mind Virginia’s View board for her current challenge: All About Color.


Putting that all together, I came up with this card:


The yellow and blue balloons are partially die cut into the panel. The red balloon is popped up… I was trying to give the illusion of its transparency… it didn’t turn out like I thought, but it’s still sweet.

Camp Create Badge #4 earned!
