Between Friends: Creative Cafe' KOTM January

Hi everyone!  New Year, new Creative Cafe' KOTM!!!  This kit has fun and trendy included in one amazing boxful and we have some great inspiration for you this month, using those goodies!

This sweet card is a simple design, and great for a "thinking of you":

Base: 5&1/2" by 4&1/4" white cardstock

1st Layer: 5&1/4" by 4" black stripe pattern paper glued to base with Scrap Happy Glue.

Next Layer: 4" by 3" piece of aqua and swiss dot pattern paper glued to center of card.

Center Panel: 4" by 3" piece of heart pattern paper matted on a 4&1/4" by 3&1/4" piece of white cardstock. Add 1" by 1&3/4" aqua swiss dot banner to upper right corner, and add sequins using Scrap Happy Glue.  Foam tape this piece to the center of the card.

Stamp cup stamp 4 times on white cardstock.  Color red hearts on two and fussy cut out.  Shade other two cups with gray marker, fussy cut out, then brush with Black Soot Distress Ink.

Stamp cup stamp on two different pattern papers (I used gray and aqua swiss dot).  Cut out the cup sleeve only.  Glue hearts from previous step into center with Scrap Happy Glue, then adhere cups to bottom of center panel using foam tape to elevate cup on the right.

Stamp sentiment on white cardstock using Black Tuxedo Memento Ink, trim into a banner, and glue to card.

Here's a close up of the cups and the sentiment:

Thanks for stoppin' by today....and hope you are inspired to start the New Year with those creative juices flowing!  Stop back soon for more inspiration with this amazing kit!
