I'd seen a card on PaperPrincess blog and wanted to put a little spin on it...so off to Cricut Design Space wherein I designed the slide panel, cut on the bean design paper, adhered it to brown cardstock with 3D regular foam tape.  Stamped, colored, fussy-cut, covered with liquid glass for glass affect and used two dimes for the slider, attached to coffee pot and placed dimes in the slider.  


I was particularly happy with how the Coffee Pot looks like glass...but I couldn't figure out a way for the coffee to pour out when it got over the mouse's cup.   



After making sure that the slider worked appropriately, out came the coffee stamps and my selection were the mice in a cup, stamped, colored, fussy-cut, liquid glass on the noses and sugar, adhered to card with 3D Thin Foam Tape.  

Final embellishments and sentiment added.  Then I played with the card and poured many cups of coffee and didn't spill a drop.  Had a lot of fun making this card.
