Hello readers! Today I am on the Joy Clair Design blog sharing this creation. I know 'tis the season for pumpkin spice e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g, but how about just a nice ol' cup of tea on a fall day? Today's cards use the beautiful Cup of Joy digital stamp combined with some rich fall Copic colors.
Both of these cards were created nearly identical in layout and color, I simply changed out the main image and the sentiment.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. I used a 4" x 3" piece of red leaf patterned paper on the bottom half of the card. On a 4" x 3" piece of white cardstock, I used an angled envelope die cut to give the edge a scallop detail. I also did the same to a small piece of gold glitter cardstock (and tucked it in behind the white). I printed off two of the large teacup images from the Cup of Joy digital stamp set. I only increased their size by about 15%. I colored the images with Copic markers and then fussy cut the images. I adhered the images to the card using Scotch 3M foam adhesive. I printed two sentiments onto white cardstock and cut them into thin strips, notching the ends at an angle. I adhered the sentiment strip over the teacups. I added a couple clear rhinestones to each card for added texture. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the floral images for added sparkle.
I hope you have enjoyed these fall themed cards. This simple layout would be great for nearly any kind of image. You could substitute the teacup with nearly any other image, the options are endless. Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
