Well, this week’s challenge is “Perfect blend”. You can do this in the form of colors, stamps or dies. It’s a coffee themed challenge! It’s my favorite beverage. So let’s make this card.
Step 1: The image is from Kraftin Kimmie and is called “I heart coffee”. Unfortunately, it’s no longer available. Had I realized that I probably would not have use it. I stamped the image and colored it with Copic Markers.
Step 2: Using the die set below from Elizabeth Craft Designs, cut out all the pcs. for one tea cup. I cut them out with white cardstock and colored with Copic markers:
Step 2: Cut the pieces of one my favorite dies below from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I used polka dot cardstock from Elizabeth Craft Designs called ” Thinking about – Grand Canyon”.
The frame for this card is a 7″ square. So when you cut the die from above, you need to cut 4 for all the sides of the frame. Then trim them to 7″. Here’s a link to the assembly video: https://youtu.be/elpZ5RvMUII.
Step 3: Using the largest die from this dis set below, cut a mat in the darker blue from the same paper pack:
Step 4: Create the two sentiments with your computer then print and cut out with this die set below:
Step 5: Assemble the card as shown:
The “coffee beans” and pink heart I added is from a die set that has been discontinued.
