MORE Get Well Wishes . . . Spring Coffee Lovers Style

EVERYONE is invited to share a newly created SPRING themed project that includes coffee, tea &/or coffee inspired designs.
Full details, with the link to enter your projects, can be found on the

No, you're not seeing things, I have made two more Get Well Soon cards using my Silhouette Cameo.
... I can't believe that I don't have any coffee or tea stamps and dies in my stash, until I do I will have to build up my library to do some electronic cutting.

The design is the "5x5 Get Well Soon" card by Daniela Angelova
purchased from the Silhouette Design Store.
This time I used a reddish brown cardstock and added a pop of colour with red and orange bling to the flowers.  Instead of using a bone folder to burnish the cut edges, I made a sandwhich with several sheets of paper as a shim and smoothed everything down with one pass, quick and easy and no shiny edges.  (I think starting off my die cutting adventures using metal dies has got me addicted to the super smooth edges, I'm still getting used to electronic cutting with my Silhouette Cameo, maybe one day I will be able to resist giving each piece a Big Shot SQUISH to finish it off ... time will tell.)

 

I have double matted inside each card.  Apart from giving it a nice finish, it reminds me (or whoever gets to write inside) not to write where it would be visible when the card is closed, it gives the card a nice weight, helping it to stand tall and firm.

I hope you enjoyed my cards and get inspired to join the caffeinated fun with fellow tea & coffee lovers, create a project and share it with everyone in the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

Looking forward to seeing what you create :)


I am going to enter my card in the following challenges:
