A Cup of Friendship Card
Hello, coffee, tea, or cocoa lovers! It’s Tracy here today to celebrate National Coffee Day with the Coffee Lovers Community and you! I have a Cup of Friendship Card to share! Grab a cuppa and see how I put it together!
Prepping the Card Panel
My first step in creating my Cup of Friendship card was to cut, tear and distress my white cardstock card front.
Using Distress Oxide Ink, I blended the area where my coffee cup image was going to live. Then splattered some more ink that I had watered down.
I stamped my card images onto white cardstock using black StazOn ink and then added colour using Chameleon Pens.
Create a Unique Background
Using Mounting Squares 500 Clear Half-Size, I created a brick-like background in the area the coffee cup will be.
Using the gold foil from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit with Foil, I added that perfect gold accent to the Mounting Squares 500 Clear Half-Size. Isn’t stunning? Just rub the color side up over the squares with your fingertips and peel off. No tool or heat required – easy!
Card Panel Layers
Mat the distressed card front in kraft cardstock that has been stamped with the Cup of Friendship sentiment. Place the layered panel to the white cardstock card base inked on the edges using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser.
Now for the fun part! Add the coffee cup to this Cup of Friendship card using 3D Foam Squares White Regular Size.
Attach the butterfly wings to the coffee card using Thin 3D Foam Squares Black Mix. I love mixing the different thicknesses of 3D Foam Squares to get so much more dimension to my friendship card.
Finally, add Stickles to the heart and wings of the stamped images.
I hope you love my Cup of Friendship Card! Keep reading for the Blog Hop prize entry details below!
