Coffee Holiday

Today's card is a simple card, as I'm hoping to make a set of them for a family member. The card features Lawn Fawn's Love You A Latte stamp set.

I started by creating the card base out of red cardstock. I trimmed and scored the base into a standard top-folding A2 card base (4 1/4 by 5 1/2"). While I had my trimmer out, I also cut a piece of brown cardstock to be slightly smaller than the base (4 by 5 1/4"), and a piece of latte layering paper to measure 3 3/4 by 5". I also grabbed Lawn Fawn's Snow Day Petite paper pad and cut a piece of snowflake paper to measure 3 3/4 by 2 1/2".

I grabbed my Bigshot and die-cut a circle out of white cardstock and a scalloped circle out of brown cardstock. I stamped a cup and plate from Love You A Latte in brown hybrid ink and quickly colored them in with my Copics. I also stamped the sentiment in brown ink. I adhered the two scalloped circles together and set them aside.

I wanted to make my own background paper, so I stamped the coffee bean all over the latte paper. I made sure some of the beans were stamped off the edge, too.

I assembled the card by adhering the panels with my standard adhesive. I added the scalloped circle with foam squares. Lastly, I adhered one of the adorable Snow Day flair to the corner of the card.
