Hello friends! How’s the weather where you are? We have a good bit of snow on the ground and I’m happy as I can be – I love me some snow! I’m thrilled to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a card with a latte Christmas wishes on it! Imagine my surprise when I discovered I had a die with the same sentiments on it as these adorable little coffee cup brads! Completely coincidental!
I created a top-folding A2 card base (landscape this time rather than the usual portrait) from white cardstock along with white layering panels for the front and the inside. I also cut red textured cardstock panels for the front and inside, and then rounded all four corners on all the panels. I applied a strip of Christmas Pattern Washi Tape vertically down the left side of the front red panel, then added three Holiday Coffee Cup Brads and three White Enamel Dots. I stamped the first part of the sentiment in green ink and adhered a white layered die cut just below it to complete it. I dug into my glitter alpha sticker sets and found a white glitter ampersand that I colored with a green alcohol marker.
I embellished the inside panel with a strip of red textured cardstock, a very narrow strip of white cardstock and a strip of the Christmas Pattern Washi Tape. I rounded the four corners, stamped the sentiment in green ink and layered the panel on the red textured cardstock.
And one more peek… I really love how this turned out! I have to admit that I was a little unsure of how the partially stamped sentiment was going to look with the die cut, but I like it!
