“Friendship has its perks” Coffee Card featuring Simon Says Stamp

Hi everyone! If you haven’t already heard, Simon Says Stamp is celebrating DieCember this month with a bunch of new exclusive dies! And I’ve been having a blast playing with some of their awesome new dies :).

For today’s card, I used the new “Tea for Three” die set. Although the name says tea, I couldn't help but think of coffee right away. I decided to use pair this die set with the “What’s Brewing?” set to make a quick and simple friendship card.

I created the focal panel by using the 4 x 2 ¾” and 4 ½ x 3 ¼” stitched rectangle dies from Lawn Fawn. I used the polka dot pattern paper from the “Snow Day” 6x6 paper pack for the mat and Bazzill “Butter Mints” cardstock for the focal panel. To create the border, I used the new bracket border die from Mama Elephant. I then I colored in one of the cute, fancy mugs using Copic Markers (G82, G85). And for the steam, I heat embossed it with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder. To add dimension to the die cut pieces, I die cut them out 3 more times and glued all of the pieces together using my ZIG two-way glue pen.  I then heat embossed the sentiment from the “What’s Brewing?” set using WOW Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder. For the background, I heat embossed the dashed argyle backdrop from Lawn Fawn with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder. I die cut the background using the 5 x 3 3/4” stitched rectangle die and mounted it directly onto a grey cardbase.

And that’s my card for today. I hope you enjoyed today’s post and be sure to swing by the Simon Says Stamp blog for more inspiration! Thanks again for stopping by! ♥
