Coffee Lover Cup Card by Margie Higuchi
Hello and welcome! It’s Margie to celebrate the Spring/Summer 2022 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with the Coffee Lovers Community and you! Today, I’d like to share a card with soft touches of florals in my square coffee cup card. Grab a cuppa and see how I put it together!
Coffee Lover Cup Card Prep
First, I cut card panel layers to create my foundation. The card base is a top-fold 5.5-inch square purple cardstock. The patterned paper panel is a 5.25-inch square and the dark purple square measures 4.75-inches. For the cream cardstock, I changed my mind and die-cut a piece of dusty rose with the largest Fluted Square die which measures 4.5-inches.
For the coffee cup, I die-cut the cup three different times. One each in patterned paper, dark purple cardstock, and cream cardstock. Then trim the tabs off as I will not be needing them. The handle was die-cut with dark purple and cream cardstock but kept the tabs on them.
One way to use scrap patterned papers is to die-cut small shapes like these sweet florals and leaves.
Stack the Layers
For the card panels, I used the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong because these panels are heavy-weight papers.
Assemble the Coffee Cup
I wanted to offset the cup and handle shapes with the cream and dark purple so I used the Dual Tip Glue Pen. It gives me “wiggle” room to move them. Plus one of the tips is narrow so I can dot the glue in narrow areas. Then I adhere the solid cup patterned paper piece in the back and lastly, attached the handle on the right side.
While the glue dries, I die-cut the “Coffee” and “Lover” words on dark purple cardstock and cut them into strips. For the dusty rose cardstock, I cut them the same height as the word strips but a little long for a shadow effect on the ribbon tail end.
I adhered the strips together with the E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser. Designer’s Tip: I use the permanent dots adhesive to my die-cut shapes as the dots hit the areas where it needs the adhesive and skip over the openings.
To secure the coffee cup, I used a combination of the Crafty Foam Tape 108ft, Thin 3D Foam Squares Small and cut up 3D Foam Circle Frames, and 3D Foam Strips in White (see the handle). I love the 1mm height on the Crafty Foam Tape 108ft and Thin 3D Foam Squares…so subtle for layers!
Florals on the Cup Card
Using a combination of Adhesive Dots in Mini and Small, I adhered the floral die-cut shapes around the top of the coffee cup. Next, I placed the leaves with the same combination of Adhesive Dots. To finish, I center the Dew Drops in Lavender on each of the florals.
The Finishing Elements
Instead of a flower to secure the sentiment, I die-cut the heart and its outline in dark purple and dusty rose cardstock which was adhered with the Dual Tip Glue Pen. Setting that aside to dry, I assemble the sentiment words together with the Adhesive Lines. Lastly, I added 3D Foam Circle Large to the back of the heart and added all to the center of the cup.
