Lift the Flap Coffee Card

Hello Friends! I'm happy to announce that I'm back as a guest designer on the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's Blog this month!!

Today I have a "Lift-the-Flap" card for you. To be honest, it sort of came together by accident. I decided I wanted to make a text background for my card, but then I didn't want to cover any of it up with my coffee image. So....I created a little interactive element where you can lift the image and view all the sentiments!

I started by cutting a piece of Canson Watercolor Paper to 4.25 x 5.5 and arranging some text stamps (from Reverse Confetti) over top in a fun pattern. Using my stamping platform made it easy to ink up and stamp them all at once!
I stamped them in Versamark Watermark ink and embossed them in midnight black embossing powder. 

Next I added some coffee bean shapes with walnut stain distress oxide and Helen's make marks 2  stencil from Stamplorations.

I stamped, colored, and fussy cut my images and layered them on an octagon shape which I attached to the card front with a piece of dark brown card stock.

Here's what it looks like when you open the flap.

That is a nice coffee card and you are very clever to come up with that flap. I also think the background looks so cool I don't want to cover it. Thanks for joining in over at a2z Scrapbooking for the September challenge.
