Have a coffee lover in your life? Then you need to make them one of these cute Cup of Christmas Cheer cards this holiday season!
My aunt loves her Starbucks. Whenever we get together, she stops are Starbucks to get a cup of coffee. So when I saw the Merry Cafe stamp set, I immediately thought of her. So today’s handmade Christmas card idea is for all you coffee lovers everywhere.
The Merry Cafe stamp set is a fun one to have in your stamp library and it can be used for more than just Christmas. You can also use it for fall, Halloween, and Valentine’s Day projects. I just love stamp sets that can be used for more than one occasion!
So let’s get started stamping!
You will need ink in black, Garden Green, and Real Red. You will need cardstock in Very Vanilla and Garden Green or Real Red. You will also need scissors and adhesive.
- Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock to 8-1/2″ X 5-1/2″. Place the long edge at the top of your scoring board and score at 4-1/4″. Fold to form your card base.
- Cut a piece of Garden Green (or Real Red) cardstock to 5-1/4″ X 4″.
- Cut a piece of Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper to 5″ X 3-3/4″.
- Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock to 5″ X 1″.
- Using Real Red ink, stamp the Christmas Cheer sentiment onto Crumb Cake cardstock.
- Using Garden Green ink, stamp the Happy New Year sentiment onto Crumb Cake cardstock.
- Using black ink, stamp the coffee cup outline twice – once on green patterned paper and once onto red patterned paper from the Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper pack.
- Using black ink, stamp the lid outline on scraps of Real Red and Garden Green Cardstock.
- Using black ink, stamp the A Cup Of sentiment onto the red lid.
Die Cutting (Use the Coffee Cup Framelits Die Set)
- Use the coffee cup die to cut out both coffee cup stamped images.
- Use the coffee cup lid die to cut out both cup lid stamped images.
- Use the coffee cup sleeve die to cut out both the Christmas Cheer and Happy New Year sentiments.
- Glue the coffee cup sleeves to the fronts of the coffee cup die cuts. The Christmas Cheer one goes on the green coffee cup and the Happy New Year one goes on the red coffee cup.
- Use Tombow Glue to stick the coffee cup lids to the tops of the coffee cups. The red lid goes on the green cup and the green lid goes on the red cup.
- Stick the Garden Green cardstock to the card base, leaving an equal border on all sides.
- Add the Very Vanilla cardstock strip on top of the Designer Series Paper about 1 inch up from the bottom.
- Cut an 8″ length of Quilted Christmas ribbon and adhere to the Very Vanilla strip, taping the ends to the backside to secure.
- Add the Designer Series Paper layer to the card.
- Add Stampin Dimensionals to the back of the assembled coffee cups and adhere both to the card as shown.
- Tie a small bow in another piece of Quilted Christmas ribbon and trim the ends. Add a mini glue dot to the back and stick to the ribbon that is already adhered to the card.
You can also switch things up and use different Designer Series Paper or a vertical card orientation for a slightly different look.
