Thanks a Latte for Quick Quotes

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. 

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.
