My first card uses the Cuppa Love Die Set to create a shaped card in the shape of this pedestal mug. You simply fold an A2 card and run it through your die cut machine with the top cutting edge just beyond the fold of your card. It might take a second run through, but you'll cut both layers in the shape with a fold at the top.
I also cut the bottom 1/3 of the die on the edge of some Canyon Clay cardstock to create a different colored pedestal. Before I adhered it, I stamped it with the Crackled stamp set and drew a line with a coordinating colored Copic to mimic the look of some glazed pottery.
Also keeping in mind how designs look on pottery, I used bold brush strokes of my Copic to add additional color to my floral motif that I stamped on my mug. And instead of Stamper's Select White Cardstock, I used Rustic White for all those imperfect flecks.
How great is that tea bag die? It hangs on a string and brings a cheery message. Can't wait to make more of these!
Next up, I have another card with another folded card element. This time the Cuppa Love mug has been shortened and the fold is on the side. The whole thing is adhered to a Soft Blush A2 card front.
I love this circular floral motif that is included in Cuppa Love. I see it being used plenty on cards, mug shaped and regular A2. Just so pretty and vintage.
When you untuck the corner of the mug from underneath the butterfly, the mug opens to reveal a sentiment. I used the new Keep It Simple: Get Well to top a full sized sentiment from Inside/Out: Well Wishes. A tea bag was created using the Tiny Tags die.
I cut a Life Is Beautiful butterfly die and folded it in half. The bottom wing is adhered to the card. I made sure the body was NOT adhered, so I could use it to hold my mug in place. The corner of the mug can slip underneath and my folded element stays in place.
Hope you love this set as much as I do! So very cute and unique. It's sure to bring cheer to whomever receives a get well card using it.
Cuppa Love and all the other new November products can go in your cart tomorrow night, November 15th at 10 PM EST at www.papertreyink.com.
