A coffee card

Hello everyone!

It’s Kathrin here again today with my first project for you today to hopefully give you a new idea of how to use a few of those amazing stamps by Vildastamps.

On this card I’ve used the Coffee Kit stamp set and the Scrap & Mixed Media Kit #2. I’ll tell you more about the details a little longer, with some close ups of the card.

In the background I’ve used a brown and black designer’s paper. I’ve also added a little doily here since those remind me of those old fashioned cafès where you get one of these under your cup.

Since I wanted some more contrast I’ve added a black cardstock rectangle that I used a border punch on one of the edges. For decorations I’ve added that “energy” paper strip that goes into a tab from foil I had lying around. The arrow clip points at the cup and brings coffee and energy together. I also added a flourish cut from white cardstock that looks like steam coming out from the cup.

I’ve also added some die cut letters that build the word coffee. The letters were cut from black cardstock, then I’ve added some highlights with a white sharpie and covered them with Glossy Accents.

Here’s a close up of the main element of my card.

On the just slightly patterned paper here I’ve stamped one of the stamps from the Scrap & Mixed Media Set 2 that reminds me of those brims a cup can leave on a table. I think this one just goes great with the coffee cup.

The cup has been stamped twice. On the second image I only colored in the lid and the sleeve and cut thouse out individually. Then I’ve run the sleeve through my paper crimper to make it look like made from corrugated paper. The I’ve glued the sleeve to the cup using 3D tape.

And here’s the little trick I’ve added to the card. The lids were cut off from the cup and glued together using 3D tape, addig a piece of white cardstock inbetween. Then I’ve cut this white cardstock more or less in the shape of the cup, just cutting it smaller. On this I’ve stamped “this one is on me!” using single letter stamps, creating some kind of a voucher.

Since the cup is glued to the card with 3D tape that is only applied to the edges of the cup the lid with the voucher can easily be slid into the cup.

Hope you liked this card and will be back later today for my second project.

Hugs, Kathrin
