Card #4 – How’ve you bean?
I started by assembling all my supplies.
I was given this stamp set by a dear friend for my birthday. I happen to love tea, coffee, stamps and puns so this was an AWESOME gift!
I used stone cardstock (5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″) for my base, rust cardstock (4″ X 5 1/2″), white card stock (1″ X 4″) and patterned paper for the coffee cups.
I started by using the border punch on the white cardstock (1″ X 4″). I then inked the piece with Distress Ink and a piece of foam to remove the bright white and inked the edges with a darker shade of Distress Ink. I used my adhesive to attach the border piece to the rust cardstock about a third of the way down from the top of the card. I inked the edges of the rust cardstock and I set that aside while I worked on the coffee cups.
For each coffee cup, I stamped the cup image onto the back of each piece of patterned paper. I then cut out the cup making sure to also cut the piece from inside the handle. Then I used my Pitt pen to draw the border lines and details of the cup. I did this 5 times. Additionally using my hearts punch, I punched 3 large hearts out of scrap rust cardstock for the front of the cups.
I wanted to stack the cups on top of each other, so I used my Exacto knife to make a small slit in the top of 4 of the cups and then slipped the cups together. I then used my tape adhesive to glue the cups to the rust cardstock on top of the border piece.
I stamped the sentiment with Momento black ink just underneath the border piece.
To finish off the card, I used my Wink of Stella Glitter Pen on the hearts and rounded the corners with my We Are Memory Keepers Corner Chomper.
Here is the finished card.
I love making cards that have a bit of whimsy and ‘punny’ humor. It’s great to make cards for people, but to get them to laugh or at least smile really big is a complete bonus.
