Coffee Mae

 Today's card features Hipster Mae, a super cute stamp set from Some Odd Girl. I wanted to do something coffee-inspired and Hipster Mae definitely fit the bill.

I started by stamping Mae onto some Copic marker paper with black hybrid ink. I went with a slightly french, modern look and colored her with blues and red. After she was colored in, I carefully cut her out with scissors and set her aside. I also stamped the coffee cup and cut it out as well.

I made my card base from medium grey cardstock. It's a standard top-folding A2 card base (4¼ by 5½") created by cutting and scoring a sheet of cardstock in half.

I grabbed some great coffee-themed paper from Happy Day paper pad. I first die-cut a stitched rectangle from the orange paper using Blueprints 15. I then cut the cute coffee cups panel with a wonky rectangle. Lastly, I cut a small stitched rectangle out of the grey cardstock.

I assembled the card by adhering the panels together and adhering them to the base. I added Mae, grey circle and coffee cup with foam tape. I stamped a sentiment from the Hipster Mae set onto some white cardstock with brown ink and cut it down to size. I adhered it to the card.

Lastly, I added a few enamel dots around the card. And there you have it! :)
