Hey guys and Happy National Coffee Day! Did you know this day was created to promote fair trade coffee and raise awareness for the plight of coffee farmers? Me neither! But, I always love learning new things! So, while the local cafés offer up a free cup of joe, this day inspired me to create a cute, coffee themed waterfall card. And I have to say ... it turned out pretty cute!
Unfortunately, I can't take all the credit. I used the adorable Doodlebug Pumpkin Spice collection and a really fun card making kit from PhotoPlay called Waterfall (links below).
I used a few 12x12 prints for the card and decorated each little square of the waterfall element with the smaller 6x6 prints. I also added a few of my favorites - those shiny shaped sprinkles! Love those.
I've included a video of how this works at the bottom but to explain - when you pull down on the twine, the waterfall element unfolds and the little squares are revealed one-by-one. Seriously ... cutest thing ever.
On the inside, I used the pretty petite prints buffalo check/wood grain paper in pistachio. Then I added a 3" scalloped circle cut from white cardstock, a few cute coffee die cuts from the Odds and Ends and a sweet sentiment from the Chit Chat.
I would definitely recommend this PhotoPlay card kit. It was fun to make and it turned out ahh-dorable!! I can't wait to give it to someone special. Now, check out the video ...
