Espresso-ly Inspired Card



This espresso can has been hanging around my kitchen all summer as an unbreakable vase for my little girl to keep filled with forget-me-nots, dandilions, daisies, Queen Anne's Lace and other such rare teasures that might be found in a backyard.

When I found the reindeer stamp for a dollar at Micheal's last week, I instantly thought of that can! It took all of a few minutes to cuttlebug the snowflakes and layer the deer with some square scallop punches. I layered blue grosgrain over the chocolate organdy and it was done!

i love it! i like the idea of looking at everyday objects and getting a card face from them (billboards, junkmail, coffee bottles!, etc...)
