Day 4:  A Little Coffee Makes Everything Better



On this card I used the wax paper technique wherein you use an Embossing Folder of your choice and run the wax paper through the Cuttlebug and then follow the rest of the wax paper technique...so simple and elegant.  For the Embossing Folder Technique my source was Cuttlebugged Wax Paper technique Gina K Designs video from 2009.  





Sentiment Panel was stamped with Sapphire Ink, and then the Coffee was stamped and layered with 3D Thin Foam Tape on the sentiment panel.  I initially had stamped it on the sentiment panel but stamped word coffee upside-down, thus the layered panel was born...and I liked it better. Printed and colored another cup from Verve freebie digital stamp, and adhered and layered on card for dimension.
