Double Shot Coffee Cards

Hi, Everyone! Today I have a fun pair of cards using Globecraft & Piccolo's Accents and Embossing Enamels.


Most days I design singular projects, but sometimes I find a layout or design I really like and I make a set of cards that coordinate, but aren't exact duplicates...like these cards!


To make these cards, you'll need a few items from the G&P shop:

other supplies:
patterned papers: Amy Tangerine - Sketchbook
stamps: Stampin' Up! Perfect Blend, Gorgeous Grunge
cardstock: Stampin' Up! Melon Mambo, Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White
rhinestones
foam tape

I kept the basic design the same on both cards. I varied the patterned papers, cardstock colors, embossing enamels and accent placement.


The coffee cup on each card is embossed in Micro Black. I stamped the cup three times - once fully for the base, partially for each lid and partially for each wrap (on scraps of patterned paper). After fussy cutting, I adhered the wrap directly to the cup base and the lids were adhered using foam tape.


I had to include close ups of the accents...see how clean the edges are?! I love the natural color, but you can use markers, paint, 3D Gels, glitter glue...whatever you want to use to match them to your projects! (Sometimes there are tiny bits on the edges, but you can use an emery board/fine sand paper to smooth them away.)

The flourishes on the second card are 2 of the flourishes, one flipped over, glued close together. (These flourishes also make GORGEOUS hearts!)

Thanks! I'm not actually a coffee drinker, but I love the way it smells in the morning...and I have seen what it's like when a certain someone in my house doesn't get their coffee fix in the morning! lol
