Nothing’s Better Than…Coffee, Cookies and More

I thought I had come up with a fairly simple card to share with my group of twelve stampers at our semi-monthly class at the Avimor Community Center last week.  But……that simple bit of changing colors and words proved otherwise!  It does take time to get the right color and the right goodie sent around the tables while letting everyone get the color and image of their choice.  The group, which does vary from session to session, always has a great time chatting as these supplies are moving around the room.  It’s a great way to make new friends and get to know one another.

Prepping for these cards was definitely the easy part!

  • Card Front:  Basic White Thick card stock:  8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″
  • Layer 1:  Just Jade card stock:  5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Layer 2:  Cinnamon Cider card stock:  3″ x 4-1/4″
  • Layer 3:  Basic White card stock:  2-3/4″ x 4″
  • Pop-up layer:  Basic White card stock scraps

  • Step 4: Stamp your treat of choice outline image two times in either Just Jade, Cinnamon Cider or Early Espresso classic ink
    • I recommend Early Espresso for the outline of the cookies (and chocolate chips) and perhaps the bon bone.
    • Stamp a third of image of choice on a piece of scrap paper to cut out (die or scissors) after you stamp the center.
    • Stamps center images in the color of your choice.  I recommend stamping of the ink on a piece of scratch paper to light the color intensity for all of the centers, cookies especially.
    • Attach this layer to the card front.
