Hope Your Birthday Stacks Up-Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Hop
Hello and happy Monday! Today's card was created for the 2021 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Hop. I belong to a coffee lover's group and we swap cards every month. Sometimes we include little treats for one another to enjoy. The darling little stacked teacup die cut and sentiment were included in my card this last month from one of the members. I decided to pair it with some pretty patterned paper from the Basic Grey Out Of Print 6x6 paper pad, some sequins from The Ton, and a scalloped edge strip that I cut using a Fiskar's punch. I assembled the card by adhering the die cut image onto some deep aqua blue cardstock I had in my stash using Jackie's Craft Table archival glue. I then attached a piece of the Basic Grey patterned paper directly to the cardstock. Using a Pink & Main A2 rectangle die I die cut the panel down. I punched the scalloped edge border using the Fiskar's punch and adhered it the panel at the border to help delineate the cardstock and the patterned paper. Using a Jillian Vance fishtail banner I die cut the sentiment, layered it onto more of the deep aqua cardstock and cut it down to match the fishtail using my detail scissors. I popped it up off of the card using 3M foam tape, added some color to the tea cups using my Copic markers, and finished the card by adding some coordinating sequins. I like how it turned out!
