I went with a clean and simple design on this A2 card to really let the alphabet dies take center stage. I started by cutting a piece of kraft cardstock 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2” and centered a Frilly Frames Stripes Die on the panel. After die-cutting the piece, I cut a piece of dark brown cardstock 3 3/4″ x 5 1/4” and adhered it to the back of the kraft cardstock. I then adhered this to an A2 card base.
Next, I die-cut a piece of gray cardstock with a Fancy Frames Rectangle Die and adhered the frame surrounding the stripes. For the focal point of my card, I die-cut a piece of white cardstock with a Stitched Rectangles Die and heat embossed sentiments from the Words of Gratitude Stamps in the corners. I then softly inked the center of the rectangle with Antique Linen and Spun Sugar Distress inks. I die-cut a piece of pink cardstock with a Fancy Frames Rectangle Die for a mat and adhered these pieces to the center of the card.
For the Espresso sentiment, I inked a piece of white cardstock with Brushed Corduroy, Walnut Stain and Ground Espresso Distress inks in a gradient and die-cut the piece with the Hayley Uppercase and Hayley Lowercase Alphabet Dies. I love how these letters look in a slightly rounded form. They wrap so nicely!
To finish, I stamped the cup and macaron from the Paris Afternoon Stamps on Neenah Classic Crest 80lb solar white cardstock, colored them with Copics, and die-cut them using the coordinating dies. I added sweet smiley faces to them using the Summer Sweets Stamps.
I hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by today!
