Hey Y’all. It’s RELEASE Day! I hope you are as excited as I am. I don’t know about you, but I was still thinking Christmas and Holiday until the first week of January. So, when I went to stamp it was such a joy to stamp and use products that weren’t Holiday or Christmas. I really, really enjoyed playing with our January Collection.
We’ve had some wonderful cards from The Cat Pack this Week and some truly inspiring cards from Special Guest Designer, Julee Tillman. We were so blessed to have her join us and are so blessed that she is joining us in this blog hop.
For my card I decided to do a Z-Box Card using our Z-Box Card Cutables.
You know the saying “business in the front, party in the back”? When, I make cards like this, that saying is my guide. I tend to make the front of the cards a little plain, since the excitement will come when the card is opened.
The front is just a couple of different patterned paper and the NEW Stitched Enjoy CutUps. What is so great about this die is that it’s a deeply etched die, which means that you can cut a thicker material than regular. I glued together 3 layers of black cardstock, let it dry and cut through it for dimension. It also makes the word a little less “floppy”, if you know what I mean.
Here is the inside.
I love coffee and I wanted to show the energy that coffee gives me. So, I used the NEW Coffee Clatch CutUps to cut up different papers to paper piece the “characters” and used acetate strips to pop them up and dance.
Here is the card fully open.
Once I finished the card, I decided that I needed to add stitching to the cups. Unfortunately, I think that I had too much of my favorite beverage and the “stitching came out a little wonky. Plus, I was a little lazy and did this after the cups were attached to the acetate. Note to self: Don’t be lazy.
I do love this card, though. I hope you liked my card and our Blog Hop. I encourage you to take another peek. I know I will.
Here’s the lineup.
