I love that each packet contains white cups, red cups and coffee beans! For this card, I've used the red cups and paired them with our adorable Doughnut Brads. I chose papers in neutral brown tones, so those adorable cups and the "thanks" part of the sentiment would really stand out.
It's always fun to add an interactive element to cards, so this one has a tag hidden behind the sentiment panel. And yeah... I had to sneak in one more pun, "DONUT know what I'd do without you"! The Doughnut Brads come in a mix of three colors, but I've stuck with the chocolate/brown ones this time.
In the background you can see my second favorite trick for making my own customized patterned paper. Obviously my very favorite trick is to cover cardstock with a coordinating shade of Eyelet Outlet Washi Tape, but this one's good too: I fill a piece of paper with text that reinforces the message of the card. So in this case, I've typed "thank you" in lots of different languages on a creamy tan color of paper that ties in with the accent color of the cups AND the pastry color under the chocolate icing of the doughnut.
