Love You Coffee
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends. The new release of dies has a coffee/tea die that works well for Valentines Day, but honestly, I can see myself using it year-round. Nothing is quite as comforting as a warm and cozy drink, and it is a great way to let someone know you are thinking of them.

To make the card, I made used 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" kraft cardstock and ran it through my die cutting machine. I cut out the heart using mirror paper and then attached it to the kraft background so that the lines matched up.

For the rest of the card, I cut out the cup base and heart using patterned paper and then layered the same patterned paper onto the "love" and "you." I wanted just a touch of bling, so I cut out the hearts for the words using red glitter paper. The nice thing about Memory Box glitter paper is that it doesn't come off your card and go everywhere.

Here is a close up:


The cardstock base is a standard slime line card, which measures 3 1/2" x 8 1/2." The large red heart hangs over the edge a bit, but the card still fits in a standard business envelope. I refuse to pay extra postage!

Have a fantastic day,
