Hi friends! This is the second project I’m showcasing for the Trinity Ambassador “A Few of Our Favorite Things” Social Media Hop on Instagram starting at 6:00 AM PST this morning and ending at 11:59 PM PST on Friday, December 3rd! My main post is HERE. I mentioned in my last post that I was in a mini slimline kind of mood… and three of my four projects were mini slims, lol! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! This card features die cuts from the Coffee Cut & Foil Die Set and the inside sentiment is from A Sentiment for (Almost) Everything stamp set. I wanted a ‘country’ feel to this card so that’s why I chose not to use the foil plates. But stay tuned because it won’t be long before I do use them!
For your chance to win a $20 gift card to the Trinity Stamps store, be sure to hop along with us on Instagram, starting at @trinitystampsllc – there will be a ton of inspiration! Winners will be announced on the Trinity Stamps blog by December 5th! Have fun hopping!
I cut the mini slimline card base from CutCardStock Basis Brown cardstock along with a layering panel from Hot Off The Press Sunflowers 6×6 double-sided cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set. I die cut the coffee sentiment four times from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock using the die from the Coffee Cut & Foil Die Set and layered them together for a little dimension. I die cut the coffee cup from ivory and brown cardstock, the coffee beans from brown cardstock, and the mid section of the cup and beans from scraps of the patterned paper, and did some paper piecing to complete them. I adhered all the elements to the card front (using double-sided adhesive foam strips for the cup), and added a few gemstones from the Ruby Radiance Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Pick Up Stick – which is a true life-saver when adhering gemstones!
I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set and embellished it with a leftover strip of patterned paper used on the front and a narrow strip of CutCardStock Basis Brown cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the A Sentiment for (Almost) Everything stamp set in brown ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the card base. I had leftover heart die cuts so I pieced one together and adhered it to the inside panel.
And one more peek… super awesome coffee-loving card! Love the country feel!
