You Mean a Latte To Me - Coffee Cup Pop-Up Card

 Hello Crafty Friends and welcome. My card for you today features Karen Burniston's brand new Tea and Coffee Pop-Up.

For this card, I started with an A2 sized card base using a olive green cardstock. I die cut three rectangles using MFT - A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX dies in the largest sized rectangle. I used a cream colored heavy weight cardstock because I wanted to color the background using Copic markers. 

I used Concord and 9th's Coffee Blend Turnabout stamp to create the background, stamping it using Lawn Fawn's Jet Black Ink. Then I colored the images in with Copic markers. 

I dug through my stash of scrap patterned paper and found this brown lined pattern paper and thought it would work well with my card, so I used it to create borders for the top and bottom of my card. I then die cut the coffee bean border using Karen Burniston's Tea and Coffee Borders. 

I die cut the pop-up mechanism from the same cardstock as the card base and added it to the card. Then I die cut the coffee mug. I added Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and Antique Linen, then I die cut a second mug from the same green cardstock as my card base and added some trim to the mug. I stamped the sentiment "You Mean a Latte to Me" using MFT - Coffee and Conversation stamp set. 

I die cut the spoon from a mirrored silver cardstock and added to the bottom of the card, by the mug. Using Karen Burniston's Cupcake Add-On die sets icing die, I die cut a piece to be whipped cream on the top of the coffee. I die cut a couple of coffee beans and added them to the whipped cream. 

I also used Karen Burniston's Word Set 2 - Birthday Die Set to die cut the Happy Birthday from gold cardstock and add it to the top of card. 

I felt at this point it needed a little something, so I decided to use MFT - Sweater Weather in the Woods stamp set to add some coffee drinking critters. I stamped the images, colored them and then added them to the card. 

Lastly, I die cut a small rectangle using Karen Burniston's Rectangles - Crosshatch dies, to use as a place to sign the card. 

For the front of the card, I added half the background from the inside of the card and half a white background. 

I stamped the sentiment on the front using the same stamp set as the inside of the card. 

I also added another coffee bean border and added a couple of more critters to the front. 

This is a great card for that coffee drinker in your life. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
