Hello. I have a card to share using a new die set from Time For Tea Designs:
I die cut the coffee cup in a piece of card which had been sprayed with mica stain, this would act as the base which would be seen through the acetate.
I then taped the coffee cup and window die together, and die cut both 5 times to create the walls of the shaker. I didn’t use 3D foam for the edges – I think stacked die cuts look cleaner when viewed from the side.
I glued four of the die cuts to the base, added sequins into the ‘well’, added acetate to the back of the top ink smooshed layer and stuck down. I wanted a brown-ish coffee cup, but not solid brown. The lid was die cut and added.
I stamped the sentiment, cut into a strip, and glued to the top of the acetate.
There are a few dies in this set I didn’t use – a gift card holder and slots, and a coffee cup wrap piece – but I thought the wrap piece would cover up too much of the cup and shaker for this project.
I wanted a background patterned paper which was quite colourful, so the coffee shaker would stand out, and chose one which had colours which seemed to be reflected in the sequin mix.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Day Of The Month Card Club – National Espresso Day
