Big Cups Coffee Card

Another card for day three at the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop using a color challenge at Just Us Girls #335.




Because my coffee cup dies are small, I drew this large cup, lid and sleeve by hand and fussy cut them. The cup was assembled, stamped with "Coffee" and a heart, and backed with foam to pop it up. The sentiment was matted with a die cut scalloped rectangle and also popped up. The card was layered onto a white card base by layering a panel of pink, a die cut scalloped border of yellow and a panel of purple. The inside was decorated with a few heart stamps.

Techniques: Stamping, die cutting, fussy cutting, free hand drawing and cutting

Ink: Strawberry Slush
