This is the card I gave my husband for his birthday. Its also the last card we did in my All Occasions Card Class. I used the Coffee Cafe Stamp Set along with the Coffee Cups Framelits, both retiring on June 4th.
The card base is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ of Mint Macaron. I added a 2 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of the Wood Textures DSP, which is also retiring .
I stamped the cup and ice cubes in Crumb Cake and sponged the “whipped” cream as well. The cup wrap (I can’t remember what its called……I don’t drink coffee) is from the Classic Garage DSP (also retiring). The cup top is Vellum and all are die cut with the Coffee Cups Framelits.
The leaves are from the Leaf Punch and they are sponged with Mint Macaron. I couldn’t resist, I had to add a double Linen Thread bow with a Glue Dot.
The Happy Birthday is die cut from the Well Written Framelits (they are NOT retiring, yeah!). I took a scrap of Whisper White, my Sponge Brayer & Crumb Cake Ink to get the “ombre” look. If you look at my card, the dark is on the bottom for the Happy and at the top for the birthday, because I didn’t use a long enough piece of cardstock.
You can see below how both words fit on my cardstock.
This is what they looked like right after die cutting. I wanted a bit more variation so I took my Sponge Brayer and inked up just the top of the letters.
This is more of what I was looking for. After you Brayer your cardstock, add a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive to the back, then die cut, and now you have a sticker and don’t have to mess with Liquid Glue. Easy peasy! The Multipurpose Adhesive sheets (page 213) are on the “hit” list, I mean the retirement list. Get them while you can. I stocked up.
Don’t forget that the Everything is Rosy Product Medley is now available to order. Get all the details about this AMAZING Product Medley HERE!
