Parker's Birthday Card

2 weeks late on my post but oh well. Earlier this month it was one of my best friends birthday. I almost forgot to make him a card, but once my mom reminded me, I was on the hunt for an idea. I have difficulty making a generic card, when I make a card it's normally for someone and made for that specific person. Well, I was trying to think of something that "screams" Parker. I couldn't think of anything, so I just started looking through stamps to try and spark an idea. Good thing I did because I missed the most obvious thing that Parker loves - COFFEE! (If you think you drink a lot of coffee, I can bet that Parker drinks more. I try to tell him that it's not good for him to drink that much coffee but he doesn't listen - boys...)

Anyways, the only coffee stamp sets I could find were very small, so I made him a 3x4 card. I've also had this idea to take this "netting" kind of thing and use ink to make a patterned background. I figured it would be perfect for this because it kinda looks like coffee beans - kinda. It's a very simply, small card but it has meaning, which is what I find important when I'm making cards for my friends.


  1. This is a perfect card for Parker. I love how you stamped all the beans on the inside of the card.
