Step One

The main focus for this project is the coffee cup topper from the Lisa Audit cardmaking pad along with the Joanna Sheen `Happy Father’s Day` signature sentiment die.


Step Two

Select the coffee cup sheet from the paper pad and cut the coffee cup image out. To get even more height and so you only use the one sheet from the pad then use a craft knife to cut out just the green area on the coffee cup making sure you do a clean cut.


Step Three

Cut a coconut card mat for the topper to sit on and select the Tim Holtz forest moss ink pad along with a Creative Expressions smoothie.


Step Four

Add the forest moss ink on the area where the cut out coffee cup image will be.


Step Five

Attach the topper over the inked section using double sided tape or a tape runner.


Step Six

Add some of the Pinflair glue on the reverse of the decoupaged pieces before adding them onto the topper. Here the white void is covered with the ink making the cut less visible.


Step Seven

Cut the `Happy Father’s Day` sentiment out in the coconut card and then add some of the Tim Holtz vintage photo ink on the middle of the sentiment leaving either side white. Now add some of the forest moss to the sides.


Step Eight

Quickly add some Cosmic Shimmer clear detail embossing powder over the wet ink. If it has dried, then add some clear ink over the distressed ink before adding the embossing powder. Use a heat tool to emboss the powder and repeat the process again for a clearer finish.


Step Nine

The sentiment now colour tones with the coffee cup topper. The joy of the sentiment die is that you can cut it in mirri card, a patterned paper or ink up the sentiment to match your design.


Step Ten

Make an 8-inch x 7-inch blank card by trimming down an 8-inch card blank or by joining 2 sheets of the Foundations coconut card. Print off the coffee bean backing paper from House Mouse decoupage Cd. Cut the 2nd and 3rd from largest double pierced rectangle die shapes in the coconut card and then use the 4th from largest pierced die to cut the coffee bean backing paper out.


Step Eleven

Ink around the edges of the largest pierced panels using the vintage photo distress ink on a smoothie. Layer up all 3 panels using foam tape as you work your way down. Wrap some of the hemp cord around the spine of the card and finish it off in a bow towards the top of the card.


Step Twelve

Cut out the sentiment tag and add the embossed sentiment at an angle onto the tag. Attach the coffee cup topper onto the panels using foam tape and then add the tag under the cord bow.


Step Thirteen

The ends of the cord on the tag can be knotted around the bow and then cut a small coffee cup from one of the sentiments on the paper pad page and add over the knot of the bow.

So a simple Father’s Day card with dimension and soft colour tones are taken from the topper.
