I wanted to create a café look with this card, so I used some Spellbinder border dies to create some curtains from some gingham paper which I've had in my stash for ages but I think it's My Mind's Eye!!! I'm really making an attempt to use up papers however I usually buy them at an ever faster rate !!!
I used more of the DP for a table cloth and topped it with a doily. I then set the table with a coffee pot, mugs and a sugar bowl stamped and cut from the WMS Coffee set. There was a lovely milk jug in the stamp set but unfortunately it had no matching die - once you start using matching dies it's hard to go back to fussy cutting don't you think? Still if you've ordered a Latté I guess you don't need a milk jug on the table right 😄!!!
This gingham paper was a difficult one to colour match - all the colours were either too blue or to green, but then I remembered this embossing powder - which is lucky because Make My Monday has an Embossing Challenge this week.
I'll also be entering the Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies Challenge for April and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which has an Anything Goes Challenge this week.
