This card was made as a "oops I missed your birthday" card,
and also made with the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop in mind.
I think the sentiment fits the occasion.
The stamps are from one of the major sponsors of the hop, Verve Stamps, and the set is Coffee Helps
I started with the dp, but decided that gray on white with embossed gold dots was a bit blah, so coloured the roses with chalks, and liked the results at the time.
The sentiment was initially stamped onto the dp, but it warped and did not emboss well, so plan B - put it onto plain white card, die cut it and sponge the edges with gold Delicata ink.
I also stamped and embossed the coffee mugs as I went, and coloured them with prismacolor pencils before fussy cutting them.
I laid out the card, was happy how things looked, so wound the bakers twine around the dp, and adhered it to the base, having previously gold embossed the edges of it.
Then I discovered another BIG OOOPS - I had adhered it upside down, so that meant a quick rearrangement of the elements before adhering them over fun foam.
Some gold sequins in the centre of the flowers on the cups and on the sentiment panel and the card was done - finally 😏, by then I was having second thoughts about the flowers being coloured, but I was not going to start again!
I finished the inside with a strip of the dp (uncoloured) and a gold bordered ribbon.
