Good Tuesday morning!! I'm over on the Dies R Us blog today 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.
