Day 2 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Spring/Summer 2020

This is my second card for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. Today I chose to use a fun fold card that is clean and simple.

The blog hop is a week long event and the full details are available on their blog which can be accessed here

A full video tutorial is available.on my you tube channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

What I Used

2 Pieces of A4 Hunkydory Adorable Scoreable Card stock in purple
1 Piece of Patterned Paper from the Hunkydory Foxy Friends Paper Pad
Double Sided Tape
PaperMania Silver Embossing Powder
Dovecraft Premium Embossing Stamp Pad
Spectrum Noir Tri-blend Markers in Ice blue blend, Hydrangea blend, Pale pink blend, Coral blend and dull green blend
White Card
Heat Tool
Stamp Easy Stamp Press
Adorable Scoreboard
Torn Rectangle Nesting Dies
Sizzix Big Shot
Daisy Mae Village Bakery Afternoon Tea Stamp Set


Take a piece of A4 Card stock in purple and cut the short side to 5 Inch. Score at 7 Inch, 8 1/2 inch and 10 inch 

This then needs cutting down the score lines at 8 1/2 and 10 inch 

Keep hold of the largest of the 2 pieces that you cut off as you will need this later. Fold the card on the 7 inch score line and burnish 

Using a second piece of card stock and the largest of the torn rectangle nesting dies, cut out the card stock.

Using the next size down die, cut the patterned paper and stick together

Cut 2 panels in the patterned paper which measure 4 3/4 inch by 1 1/4 inch and stick one of these to the panel I told you to save at the beginning 

Stick the second panel to the top of the card base 

In the patterned paper cut a panel 4 3/4 inch by 6 3/4 inch and stick to the inside of the card base 

Take the die cut torn rectangles and stick to the bottom of the flap. See picture below.

The last panel is then stuck to the bottom of the die cut to form the front of the card.

I then used the next size down die and cut a piece of white card stock. Onto this I embossed in silver the teacups from the Daisy Mae Village Bakery Afternoon Tea Stamp Set. (I have a video on heat embossing here and a blog post) I coloured these using Spectrum Noir Tri-blend markers. This was then stuck into the centre of the already secured die cuts

I cut another piece of white card using the smallest nesting die in the torn rectangle set and this was heat embossed with silver embossing powder and secured to the front of the card
