Coffee = A Good Day

Good Tuesday morning!!  Lisa here with a caffeine fueled all-occasion card.  It's funny because I LOVE coffee candy and ice cream and cakes but I don't actually drink it.  I make a lot of coffee-themed projects, but I think the cool thing about this Tutti Designs die in particular is it can be a coffee cup or a tea cup.  I'll admit to drinking copious amounts of tea daily, both iced and hot.  Caffeine makes every day better, right? 


I started my card by cutting the Tutti Designs Have a Good Day out of adhesive foil.  I like the adhesive foils and vinyls cause it saves me a step with fancy die cuts.

I knew I wanted the cup die cut on a circle, so I took a scrap of purple cardstock and laid my circle die on it before adhering the coffee cup.  That way, I don't have to worry about centering my die cut image onto the circle, I can tape my die in place around the cup once it's adhered. It's sort of like cheating, but it keeps me from ripping my paper when I put the cup down crooked and have to pull it up and start over.




When I first cut the bottles out, I decided I wanted to fill in all the die cut holes, so I glued them to foil cardstock with Bearly Art glue and fussy cut around them.


I still had one little area where my vinyl wouldn't lay straight, so I positioned one of my stones over it to hide my mistake 😎


I thought the card was missing something so I cut a couple of the Tutti Designs Cross Stitch Banners out of foil scraps.  Little banner accents always tie everything together.

I know I'm not the only one who needs caffeine to fuel her mornings!  Hopefully this inspires you to make some caffeine themed creations too. --Lisa
