Perk Up Soon Card by Margie Higuchi
Hello friends! Margie here, and today I have a festive and fun little project to share celebrating everything caffeinated. Here are all the details about my coffee-themed card and how to create your own accent. 🙂
Let’s Perk Up and Create the Cups
Die-cut five coffee cups from the Cups & Mugs Die Set with patterned papers. Then die-cut the sixth one from a sheet of 3D Foam Creative Sheets Small White.
Prepping the Card Base
Cut a piece of light green cardstock to 4.5 x 11 inches and fold it in half to create a top-fold card base. To keep the background a solid color but give it interest, I embossed the card front with an embossing folder. Designer’s Note: Mist the front of the cardstock with water to get a crisp embossed detail.
Assemble + Embellish the Coffee Cups
Place the cups in two rows with a space for the 3D Foam coffee cup as pictured below. Use the E-Z Dots® Repositionable Refillable Dispenser to help with placement. I love this adhesive! You can peel the cups off and on to get your desired look. Once it’s adhered, it’s hard to take off until you peel it off. Lastly, adhere the 3D Foam coffee cup to the card front.
Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside with Foil
Take off the top liner of the foam cup and place a piece of lavender foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Pastel Colors over the exposed adhesive. Make sure the foil color is facing you, rub gently to transfer the color, and peel off the foil. Reapply the foil in missed areas.
Center a small 3D Foam Heart on the cup and repeat the foiling step with a piece of green foil from the same Metallic Transfer Foil pack. Grab a heart from the E-Z Runner® Hearts Refillable Dispenser, and center on the 3D Foam Heart. Then foil it.
Stamp sentiment on vellum with black ink and cut to a banner with ribbon tails on each end. Adhere towards the bottom of the card front with the E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesive Dispenser (aka the vellum runner). Place clear and green bubbles on the card front with Adhesive Dots Mini.
I hope you enjoyed my Perk Up Soon Card! Don’t forget to keep reading for the Coffee Lover’s giveaway details.
