Another CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!

Hi again! This is my second post for today - just in time to beat the deadline for this week's CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!


This week's challenge is to create a Clean And Simple (CAS) masculine project using kraft cardstock, which I love! CAS is not my usual style, but I do love a challenge! Since practice makes perfect, here we go again LOL! I also LOVE coffee and I own many coffee stamps. I came across these in my stash and decided to ink 'em up. 

Here is what I created for my hubby (HUBBY - DON'T PEEK!). He sure is the sugar - 100% super sweet! :)

My "Great Coffee" Card: 
To draw focus to the coffee cup & sentiment, I matted the kraft cardstock on a cream base (although it looks kinda white in the picture). I LOVE that corrugated paper diamond! I seem to be on a red & blue kick lately! I think it's just such a nice color combo with the kraft!
Just a side view to show how I popped up the diamonds to balance out the thickness of the corrugated paper. I embossed the blue diamond too. And don'tcha just LOVE that button? It reminds me of cherry candy! Twine is a great masculine embellishment - it just seemed to finish the card off nicely.

Stuff I Used:
Stamps - Gel-a-tins 'Coffee Break'
Cardstock - Kraft Journal Kraft, Prism Ivory, SU Real Red & Baja Breeze, 
Canvas Corp. Flute Tiles, Calendar Paper (random stash)
All The Other Stuff - Cuttlebug Argyle Embossing Folder, Brown & White Bakers Twine (random stash), 
Handmade Red Heart Button-Jane Beljo (janeb74 on Etsy), Memento Rich Cocoa Ink, Dimensional Adhesive  

Thanks for stopping by again today - TWICE is NICE. :)

I really like this card. I think kraft card stock is great as a beginning for a lot of cards. I like the red and blue together it is so summery (is that a word?).
