House of Cards February Challenge : Shaped Cards


This months challenge for House of Cards is:
Technique Challenge: Shaped Cards
I chose to go with a Latte.  I used a digi from Drawn With Character and enlarged it close to an A2 card size and then printed it on white cardstock, Valentine paper, and beige cardstock.  After paper piecing I decorate the foam top of the latte first with liquid applique and heat set it (I just can never let it set overnight) and then spread clear glitter glue over it.  Then I sparkled the front of the card up with a gray atyouSpica pen.
Open view, I have not chosen an inside message yet:
Close up to show the sparkle:

Since I love lattes, I'm really loving this card! Love that background on the cup too (and the whipped cream looks yummy). I'm guessing you created the background for the cup. I learn about these different products from other bloggers or youtube, and if I can use a coupon (or find a sale), it's fun to try with other supplies. Today I got some fiber paste on sale...been wondering what it did, and saw somebody use it! That's the fun part of card making. When it comes to design, I'm in a rut! Cute & adorable card. TFS & Hugs
