Coffee Lovers Summertime Card feat. Lawn Fawn Build-A-Drink

Hello friends. I could not pass up the opportunity to make a coffee themed card using the Lawn Fawn Build-A-Drink Dies. Iced coffee is one of my favorite summer beverages so I had to make this card! I love how it turned out too!

For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/2″ to create a card base, die cut a piece of Stampin’ Up!’s Coffee Break 12 x 12 Pattern Paper (retired) with the largest die in the Lawn Fawn Large Slimline with Sliders and cut another piece to 3-1/4 x 8-1/4″. I cut a piece of Stampin’ Up!’ Early Espresso 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock to 1-3/8 x 8-1/4″ which I embossed using the Stampin’ Up!’s Pinewood 3D Embossing Folder (retired) and added some Stampin’ Up!’s Early Espresso Ink to highlight the raised areas.

On the aqua pattern paper background I added coffee rings using Stampin’ Up!’s Early Espresso and Pool Party Inks. I used the lids of small bottle like a small squeeze bottle and other aorund my craft room.

I die cut the glasses and beverage parts from Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ using the Lawn Fawn Build-A-Drink. I colored the cold brew coffee with Stampin’ Up!’s Early Espresso Ink and the latte with Catherine Pooler Designs Sand Castle and Over Coffee inks. I added water to both drinks as well as some white specs to the latte beverage with White Acryic Paint.

The ice cubes were cut from Vellum and the coffe beans from Stampin’ Up!’ Early Espresso 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock and inked with Stampin’ Up!’s Early Espresso Ink. the starw was die cut from a green piece of pattern paper from Stampin’ Up!’s Coffee Break 12 x 12 Pattern Paper (retired).

I stamped the donuts from Lawn Fawn’s Donut Worry Stampset onto Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Markers. I used E21, E34, and E23 for the doughnut and YG01, YG25 & YG17 and R81, R83, & R85 for the frostings.

I die cut the ‘latte’ word from Stampin’ Up!’ Early Espresso 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock using the Honey Bee Stamps Honeycut Latte Dies 3x and the shadow from Vellum. I stamped the rest of the sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamps LATTE Stamp Set with Over Coffee ink.

I finished off the card by adding white highlights with a Uni-Ball Signo Broad Point White Gel Pen and shimmer to the ice cubes, beans, and ‘latte’ word with Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen.

On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of pattern paper from Stampin’ Up!’s Coffee Break 12 x 12 Pattern Paper (retired) to 1 x 8-1/2″ and stamped a sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps Shake It Off Stamps with Stampin’ Up!’s Early Espresso Ink and added some beans and a donut.
