With Coffee Anything Is Possible - Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit

Hi Everyone! Today I created a card using the Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit - Coffee, Tea and Cocoa. I changed the coffee cup die up a bit.  Instead of holding hearts, which is part of the die, I had the coffee cups holding donuts. Who doesn't love coffee and donuts?? Join me as I show you how I put this card together and got those cute little donuts in the hands of the coffee cups. Enjoy!

I cut a 5" x 7" piece of the kraft card stock that comes in the kit.

I cut two panels from the 6x6 patterned papers that come in the kit and chose to use a diagonal striped pattern.

I cut a scalloped frame using the Pretty Pink Posh Scalloped Frame die set.

I added a backing for the frame using Neenah Solar White 110 lb. card stock.

I cut the smaller frame from the same scalloped frame die set from the donut patterned paper that comes in the kit.

Next, I cut the frame in half.

I have all the pieces for the base panel for the card and start to put everything together. Here, I add the diagonal patterned papers to the top and bottom of the kraft 5" x 7" base.

Next, I add the frame that was cut in half as shown above.

I add the larger frame to the center of the panel adhering it with 3d foam tape to give the card a little dimension. This completes the base for my card.

I want the coffee cups to hold donuts instead of hearts because I love coffee and donuts. (Wish I could eat them every day!!) I cut out three donuts from the patterned paper as they fit perfectly in the hands of the coffee cup dies.

Here, you can see how perfectly they fit.

I add the sentiment to a small tag that comes on one of the patterned pieces of paper in the kit and stamp that on with Tree Branch Archival Ink.

Here again is the completed card. I use 3d foam tape to add the coffee cups to the left side of the inside frame and add some glitter hearts to the background that come in the kit. I love this kit and have plans to make many, many cards with it so stay tuned.


This card kit is sold out. But you can find the coffee cup die and the stamp set by clicking on the links below:
