Thanks A Latte 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!
o Anchors Aweigh 101 is trimmed to 4 ¼” x 5 ½”.
o The paper is pressure embossed with a folder that also die cuts the coffeed cup at the same time. How cool is that?
o To bring out the embossed areas, a sanding block is used to sand away the color from the paper.
o Anchors Aweigh 104 is trimmed to 4 ½” x 5 ¾”.
o Anchors Aweigh 109 is trimmed to 4 ¾” x 6”.
o Embellishments are die cut from the scraps of the coffee cup.
o The die cuts are initially inked with Powder Puff Chalking Ink Island Orange.
o Later (not shown) I inked the sentiment with Kokomo because I decided it need more contrast.
o All the rectangle sections are inked with Island Orange.
o Twenty-four mini coffee cups are die cut. (The die includes other fall themed mini shapes, but I just wanted the coffee cups)
o Four ink colors, Island Orange, Kokomo, Deep Sea, and Capri Blue were used to ink the mini die cuts.
o Four mini die cuts were left white.
o A section of re-purposed packaging is trimmed to 4 1/8” x 5 3/8”.
o The card front is adhered to the clear re-purposed packaging.
o Foam tape is adhered around the perimeter of the card front and around the outside edge of the coffee cup.
o The mini coffee cups are placed in the shaker area and the card layers are adhered together.
o Vellum is die cut to add as a lid for the cup, with the slim die cut cup details adhered to the vellum.
o The sentiment die cut is adhered directly to the re-purposed packaging.
o 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.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you have enjoyed this short tutorial on making a quick shaker card. Quick Quotes papers makes it easy to coordinate a wonderfully layered card.
