Reverse Confetti Release: BE A BARISTA

*Note: this is my second post for today.
Please scroll down to see my post for the 10 Minute Craft Dash. Thanks!


Welcome to Day 2 of the November Release for Reverse Confetti


Today we are sharing projects made with a set called Be A Barista, illustrated by Angelica Suarez.  
This set features stamps and sentiments geared towards those favourite hot beverages of many: coffee, tea, espresso & lattes!  

Instead of a card, I made a treat container using one of the new dies that Reverse Confetti 
is releasing this month -- a die called Sweet Treat Tent.


I die cut two of the Sweet Treat Tents from kraft card stock. 
I stamped one of them with kraft ink and a stamp from another new set being released this month: So Stripey.
For my panel, I die cut some black card stock and stamped the cup in versa mark 
and heat embossed it with aqua embossing powder. 
Then I did the same with the "foam" and the sentiment, but with white embossing powder.
To give it the look of a latte foam, I took some brown Perfect Pearls and brushed it over my sentiment.
A twine bow finishes it off.

On the inside, I tucked some wrapped chocolates into a tiny glassine bag.


A perfect little treat for someone special!
