Coaster Coolness!

Saturday, June 19, 2010

Happy Saturday everyone!  Here's my newest card.  And it includes something that has been laying around in my kitchen drawer since last year.

I wanted to make a card for several of my crafty friends who have made me some sweet gifts recently.
When I first made one of of the cards it looked a bit flat. I wanted to make the circle pop up a bit to add more dimension. I was down to my last couple of pop pop-dots and didn't want to drive to the store again.

So.......I used some coasters. These are how the coasters looked originally. They are the lightweight disposable ones that you use for parties. I covered them with patterned paper then added my embellishments. Works great when you don't have any more pop dots. (smile)

I also added one of my favorite ink colors when I stamped the sentiment. 
I used Melon Mambo. Love this color. It's from Stampin Up!

Card Ingredients:
Patterned Paper: ColorBok
Embellishments: K & Company
Stamp - "Sweetheart" Set (Stampin Up)
Ink - "Melon Mambo" (Stampin Up)

Frosted Designs - Something From Around the House
Alphabet Challenge - "H" is for Hearts

Enjoy your weekend!

What a cute and colorful card! The little monkeys are adorable. Great use of the coasters. I found this challenge a wee bit hard. Sometimes I think we overlook what we have lying around to use. Thanks for playing along with us at Frosted Designs!
