Simple Cafe Card - with A Latte Love Bundle

Friends, what's better than a relaxing time at a cafe with a cuppa? 

Whatever your beverage choice - coffee, tea, hot chocolate, matcha, or another delish drink - today's card provides those fun & friendly cafe vibes.

Here's my card: 

This cafe-inspired card features the lovely Latte Love Bundle and A Little Latte Designer Series Paper (DSP). It's my June 2024 card of the month. Receive the pre-cut paper pieces & embellishments to make this card FREE with any order or class registration in June! 

To make this card, I started by stamping my sentiment from the Latte Love Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink onto a 1" x 3" scrap of Pecan Pie Cardstock. (Even the colour names sound like a cafe! 😃) Then I cut a chevron shape into the right side of the paper.

Here's a look at the Latte Love Bundle:

Next, I die cut a circle from Pecan Pie Cardstock, using the Stylish Shapes Dies. These are my go-to die set for probably more than half the projects I make. With their nested circles, squares (or diamonds), and labels, they're always in style!

I also cut out a cafe cup from A Little Latte DSP, then used one of the Latte Love Dies to cut it out.

Then I cut three 1 1/2" x 2 3/4" strips of the same DSP, in three different patterns. This paper is terrific, with so many cafe patterns. The only problem is, it always makes me want a cuppa and a sweet!

To assemble, I arranged and adhered the paper strips and sentiment on a 3 3/4" x 5" Early Espresso Cardstock panel. I attached it to a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Petal Pink Cardstock card base. (If you cut out a cup that was Lost Lagoon or Lemon Lolly in colour, you could substitute a matching card base in one of those colours.)

I adhered the cup to the circle, then attached them to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals™. My final step was embellishing with Iridescent Foil Gems. I love how the gold foil and iridescent finish add a bit of sparkle:
