Care For Some Coffee?

Before I begin talking about my project, I would like to wish all of you a blessed Ramadan! May we reap the benefits of this sacred month.

I made this, approximately 6"x6" card using goodies from Arftul Crafting's June Kit.

The theme for Challenge 14 is Rustic, and below is the gorgeous moodboard. You can read more about the challenge, and how you can participate by visiting the Artful Crafting Blog.

My kit included cardstock from the "Coffee In The Arbour" collection, which is designed by one of my favorite companies, Maja Design. I started off with  Lovely Weather and trimmed it 0.25" smaller than the card base. Next, I stenciled Lace using Picket Fence Distress Paint, and set it aside to dry.

 *Please be sure to wash your stencil as soon as you are done; its a task getting the paint off once it dries [speaking from experience]*

Doing so added some texture to the base, and toned it down a bit too. I then diecut two doilies, one from Grandma's Old Porcelain, the other from Raspberry Jam Cookies, and centered them onto the stenciled base. For the pleats, I cut out a 5.5" x 6" piece from Delicious Moments-bs, and creased it by hand. When done, I adhered the pleats to the base and dabbed them lightly with Picket Fence paint, to make them more prominent.
Next, I fussy cut the beautiful coffee spread printed on Delicious Moments, and adhered it to the center along with the tag. Last, but not the least, added some flowers, mini stars, ribbon, and rhinestones.

The inside was kept relatively simple, and layered with White Daisies-bs. Stenciled some lace over it with Vintage Photo distress ink.
