Hi friends! And this is the fourth 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. This is a clean and simple friendship card that is almost a one-layer card. I did add a panel behind the front flap so I’d have something to adhere the negative space of the cut-out to. Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! This card features the Cafe Cup Cutout Die with sentiments from the A Sentiment for (Almost) Everything stamp set. It’s a super easy one that would be awesome to mass-produce to have several in your stash!
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 a 5″ square top-folding card base and an extra panel from CutCardStock Royal Sundance Felt Natural cardstock. I die cut the cup into the front flap using the Cafe Cup Cutout Die and adhered the extra panel behind the front flap. I die cut the cup once more from CutCardStock Curious Metallic Chestnut cardstock and adhered the negative space into the cut-out on the front flap. I stamped the front sentiment from the A Sentiment for (Almost) Everything stamp set in brown ink and added some clear gemstones that I colored with a brown alcohol marker to complete the front.
I stamped the inside sentiment from the A Sentiment for (Almost) Everything stamp set in brown ink directly on the inside flap without doing any layering. Very unusual for me, lol!
And one more look… super happy with how this turned out! As I mentioned above, this card would be super easy to mass-produce to have several in your stash!
