Java Great Day Card


There are so many cute flamingo items out!  I found CUTE flamingo napkins at my local Dollar General a few weeks ago.  Seeing them made me want to do an old craft technique of adhering paper napkins to cardstock.  You peel the napkin to the first ply and then iron to cardstock using a cheap plastic wrap between the napkin and cardstock.  I have to warn you these are addicting to make (even if you hate ironing).  Wink.  Next I applied a clear glitter glue (I get mine at Michael's with a coupon) with a brush over the top of the finished napkin.  Then you have a fun background to create your card. (You will be looking for pretty napkins everywhere you go).  ;)

What's more fun than a glittered flamingo?   A coffee drinking flamingo of course!  I think this cool flamingo is drinking an iced coffee.  :)  I made this card especially for the 2019 Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.  :)  Thanks for stopping by.....now go find a napkin and get to ironing.  :)

How fun! I've never done that napkin technique but your warning makes me wonder if that is why I have avoided it. I have a lot of addictions. LOL! Such a cute napkin you used and love the punny sentiment! :)

Sounds like an interesting technique. We used to decoupage with napkins, but not on a card, of course. Will have to look into how to do it since I already have some cute napkins to use. The flamingo is fabulous, darling! lol
