to go, please by Diane Zechman

Hello Ai friends and happy Thursday!
Today I am sharing a card using one of my favorite Ai People... Maude (1238)!  I am not a morning person so I can totally relate to her attitude!  Funny thing is...I enjoy making coffee themed cards but I don't drink it myself!  lol.  The sentiment is from the Giraffe Set (4190)...cracks me up every time I read it!

Here's a close up of Maude.

I carried the theme to the INSIDE of the card with Maude stamped in light brown and a sentiment from the Cathy Caffeine Set (4322).

The elements on this card were originally made for a Card Candy Swap that I had with some stamping friends.  The pieces were all layered and embellished, then adhered to a piece of clear acetate (or use vellum or wax paper) with a removable glue dot.  I thought it would be fun to emboss a background piece as well to slip in the baggie behind the acetate.

This is a 4x6 clear bag with the topper attached.

If you've never made card candy, I would encourage you to give it a try!  It's a great way to trade or share with your friends and so fun to see what you create with the pieces!
Have a great day and… happy stamping!
