Pocket Card Challenge for A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA

This A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA challenge was to make a pocket card. It needed to be square (4.25x4.25) or 4-bar (3.5x5) and feature at least one (1) A Muse stamp image.

See all the info on this Challenge HERE.

I made mine 3 1/2" x 5". Folded over one edge and stamped the coffee beans then cut around them. I don't think I will ever get tired of using my coffee stamp sets :) This pocket card was really easy! First time for me and I'll for sure do more. Geeta shows how to make them on her post for the challenge.

The To Go cup is stamped with brown ink on white cs and colored in with Prismacolor Markers (Cream & Wheat). I drew by hand the circle around the coffee bean on the cup with a Green Tea Prismacolor Marker. I cut out the cup and it's popped up on dimensionals. I used a sponge dauber toink around all the edges with brown. The pull out holds a gift card. This card fits in a normal invitation size envelope! Perfect for mailing :)
