Thanks a Latte with Neva!

Welcome to the end of the month here at Quick Quotes! You may have noticed all the fun coffee themed projects and I am here to share a sweet shaker card with you. 

That's because we are playing along with the Spring and Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.  There's still time to play along - check it out here.

My  "Thanks A Latte" card was created from a few papers from the Anchors Away collection. The inside of the shaker card has mini coffee cups which I think are so cute!

  • Anchors Aweigh 101 is trimmed to 4 ¼” x 5 ½”.
  • The paper is pressure embossed with a folder that also die cuts the coffeed cup at the same time. How cool is that?
  • To bring out the embossed areas, a sanding block is used to sand away the color from the paper.

  • Anchors Aweigh 104 is trimmed to 4 ½” x 5 ¾”.
  • Anchors Aweigh 109 is trimmed to 4 ¾” x 6”.
  • Embellishments are die cut from the scraps of the coffee cup.
  • The die cuts are initially inked with PowderPuff Chalking Ink in Island Orange. 
  • Later (not shown) I inked the sentiment with Kokomo because I decided it need more contrast.
  • All the rectangle sections are inked with Island Orange.

  • Twenty-four mini coffee cups are die cut. (The die includes other fall themed mini shapes, but I just wanted the coffee cups)
  • Four ink colors, Island Orange, Kokomo, Deep Sea, and Capri Blue were used to ink the mini die cuts. 
  • Four mini die cuts were left white.

  • A section of re-purposed packaging is trimmed to 4 1/8” x 5 3/8”.
  • The card front is adhered to the clear re-purposed packaging.
  • Foam tape is adhered around the perimeter of the card front and around the outside edge of the coffee cup.
  • The mini coffee cups are placed in the shaker area and the card layers are adhered together.
  • Vellum is die cut to add as a lid for the cup, with the slim die cut cup details adhered to the vellum. 
  • The sentiment die cut is adhered directly to the re-purposed packaging. 
  • All the card front layers are adhered to a 5” x 6 ¼” card base. I have card bases that are a standard 6-Bar (5” x 6 ½”) that I trimmed down to fit the card front.

I had to click a lot of links to find your post, but I'm so glad that I did! I really like the Anchors Aweigh paper colors, and those mini coffee cups make a wonderful confetti! I'd never heard of anyone sanding away the raised portions of an embossed card--benius! Thank you for sharing.
