Coffee Shop Cards with My Favorite Things Card Kit

 Hello Crafty Friends and welcome! About a year ago (has it really been that long? I can't really remember when this card kit came out) I purchased the My Favorite Things Coffee Shop card kit. I just loved all the little details that this kit came with. Over time, I also bought some of the extras, like the plants and the industrial finishes. But until now, I haven't even touched it!! I know, I know, shame! Lol. Well I was having a hard time deciding what to create and gave the decision making over to my 8 year old son. He was so excited about the coffee shop stuff, so I made two different coffee shop cards for you (and him). 

For my first card, I went with an A2 sized card base in the dark brown cardstock provided in the card kit. I added some of the patterned paper that also came with the kit called Floor to Ceiling. I also added a thin piece of white cardstock to create trim between the wall and the floor. 

Then I began die cutting out all the fun little coffee shop pieces. I started with MFT - Bistro Basics and die cut the counter. I used a kraft cardstock to create the counter, adding some of the dark brown cardstock to give the counter some dimension. I added some details using Copic markers and set the counter aside. 

I used the MFT - Be Your Own Barista die set to die cut the expresso machine, coffee cups, coffee bags, etc. I added some detail to my die cuts using Copic markers. I like making these small die cuts because they use up all my saved scraps. 

I then used MFT - Make a Sign die set and Coffee Shop stamp set to create the sign over the counter. I used a scrap of black cardstock and then cut it out of dark brown cardstock. I added the dark brown frame around the black frame to give the sign some dimension. I stamped the coffee board using VersaMark Ink and white embossing powder. 

I then die cut a second counter from dark brown cardstock. I added this to the back. Then added the expresso machine, pumps and the cupcakes. I put some foam squares on the back of the first counter I made and then added that on top of the plain counter. I added the take out coffees and the cake to the front. This gives the card some dimension! I also added the shelf along with the cups, mugs and coffee bags. I stamped the coffee bean from the Coffee Shop stamp set on to the coffee bags using VersaMark ink and white embossing powder. 

Lastly, I added the sentiment from MFT - Coffee Order stamp set. I used a red cardstock as the base and with VersaMark ink and white embossing powder to create the sentiment. I added this to the front of the counter. I will warn you, this card kit is ADDICTING!!!

For my second card, I went with an A2 top fold card, using a light gray cardstock that came with my kit. I went with bright, calming colors for this card. I chose some pretty patterned paper from the same paper pad as before. 

I die cut the counter from Lawn Fawn's White Woodgrain cardstock. Then I used a smooth white cardstock to add the top and bottom sections. I added the same light gray to the top and bottom as the card base. 

I chose some scrap blue cardstock that closely resembled the blue in the patterned paper and die cut the chairs and pots from MFT - Bistro Basics and Pots and Plants. I die cut the light and fixtures from MFT - Industrial Finishes, coloring the lightbulb in with Copic markers. I die cut the plants from smooth white cardstock and colored them in with Copic markers. 

I die cut and stamped the coffee board, like I did in the first card, only changed the layout. I didn't add all the extras like I did in the first card because I wanted this card to be clean and simple. I did add some glossy accents to the cupcakes to make them look like they are under glass. 

I really enjoyed working with this card kit and the extras. There is really no end to the ideas you can come up with to create amazing coffee shop cards for that coffee lover in your life. Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting.
