BUGABOO ANYTHING BUT A CARD MONDAY INSPIRATION -- JUNE 1, 2020

Hey everyone!  Welcome back to my blog.  I hope your day is going well.  Another Monday has rolled around, so that means it's Anything But a Card day at the Catch the Bug blog.  Here is my project:

I created a gift card holder this time, although I do kinda feel like I cheated, since it still opens like a regular card.
This coffee cup is a cut file in the Silhouette Store, and it comes with the gift card holder as an insert to glue on the inside.  I made the white panel on the left side by creating an offset of the gift card holder.  I wanted to have a nice space for writing my message that was shaped the same as the cup itself.
 Anyway...the Bugaboo image I used is called Coffee Time - Perfect Blend.  I think it's supposed to represent a guy and gal couple, but I think it works for friendship as well.  I colored the image using a mixture of Copics, Prismacolor, and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  In hindsight, I'm not sure I should have used such dark blues on the cup on the left, but I think it turned out OK.  Also, I used the same sentiment the image comes with; however I used a font in my Silhouette program to write it and color it the way I wanted it. I used Spellbinders classic and scalloped ovals to cut out the image panel, and a light pink mat for behind it.  I thought it went well with the color of their little cheeks!  I blended some brown markers on the "inside" of the cup so it would look like coffee, and then covered it in Glossy Accents to make it look more like a liquid.  That's all there is to this gift card holder!  Here's another view:
