A Place To Start - November Challenge - Color Challenge - Caffeinated Tones

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
Color Challenge
"Caffeinated Tones"
 You may add neutrals or other spot colors!
 Keeping faith with my 2019 self-challenge, I created my first Tent Card.  I love it!
This style card is quite easy to construct and is a great way to use up paper scraps.  I will say that using a heavyweight acetate will make a sturdier card, particularly if you use heavy card stock.  
My stamp and die set included a die for the belly band of the cup. The Java Nice Day Sentiment was a perfect fit!
  I am always happy when I can mix and match stamp/die sets and still get a cohesive design.
As you can see, my acetate front is slightly bowed.  Next time, I will use heavier acetate sheets. 

 Creating the background for the card is a great way to reduce your stash!  I also learned a new crafting tip.  I have a lot of scrap sticker paper and I used it as backing for my background scrap strips, image, and die-cut. I cut a piece of sticker paper slightly larger than my card base.  I removed the release paper, adhered my scrap paper strips, and then trimmed the background panel down to the correct size. 
Here is a link to the Tutorial I used
