Just Us Girls Challenge #550 - Photo Inspiration



While it is time for the JUGS Challenge, it is also my CAS-ual Fridays day.  
That said, I just combined the 2.

 So, yeah I am on the trend wagon of slimline cards.  To be honest, I still am not convinced I like them. That said, I wanted to try something [I saw online], and it worked, so I went with it.  What did I try?

Extending your stencils for a background on a slimline card.  Actually, by using the Modern Pedals Stencil, it worked really easy.  Sponge the first half, move and align the stencil pattern, finish sponging the 2nd half.

I also used Cup of Coffee, Pretty Posies [for the cup pattern], Casual Trees Fri-Dies [for the foliage], and lastly, Coffee'isms [for the sentiment].




[Just a side note - if you use my code, you can save 15% off your purchase!]


Your turn.  How does the photo inspire you?  I know most of you like coffee cards, so this should be an easy challenge!  Come on over to JUGS and show us your card.


Thanks for stopping by~

Beautiful and the stenciled background is perfect for the cup design design.

Love this! I jumped on the slimline train too, lol! I've made a few but I have a secret... I don't make mine 8-1/2 x 3-1/2 - I make mine 9 x 3-3/4 which fit better in a #10 business envelope. ;) I love the stencil trick you used! That's awesome!

Apologies for commenting so late; losing track of time! I think your slimline coffee card is fabulous! The stenciled background is especially wonderful with your coffee mug! Glad you're still willing to give slimlines a go; I'm obsessed with them...
