Hi Everyone, here’s a fun Valentine card, made using the Avery Elle Cool Beans stamp and die sets. This is only one of the stamped messages that is included in the set, I thought it would make a light hearted Valentine greeting. The coffee cups are decorated with a mixture of colouring and paper piecing.
Start by cutting a piece of white card, 21 x 13.75cm, score and fold it length ways to make a tent fold card base. Layer it with pink and white card. Cut the white card using a stitched rectangle die.
Stamp three coffee cups on white card and one on the patterned hearts paper, stamp two cup sleeves one from patterned hearts paper and one from pink paper.
Die cut the coffee cups and sleeves, use pink marker pens to colour one of the cups, stick the patterned sleeve over it, add a pink die cut heart with a pink adhesive crystal to the middle of the sleeve. Colour the second cup with a darker pink marker and stamp the “I love you a latte” message in the centre. For the third cup, trim the lid off the cup stamped on patterned paper, stick the paper to the cup, stamp two hearts on to the pink sleeve and add an adhesive crystal, stick the sleeve to the cup. Use a light grey marker to add some shading to the cup lids.
Use a foam ink blending tool to colour the centre area of the white card, stick two of the cups to the centre of the card, stick the third cup using 1mm adhesive foam pad so that it can overlap the other two cups. Use the light grey marker to add a little shadow around the base of each cup.
A cute card with plenty of colour and dimension, I hope you like it. All the supplies are linked below.
