Coffee and Cookies for Make My Monday #169

Welcome to the newest Make My Monday challenge, #169.  Claudia picked the theme of food and drinks for this challenge.  When you finish here, I hope you visit the challenge page to see all the other projects from the design team members.  There’s always a wide variety of projects, and inspiration can be found in each one.

Here’s my food and drinks card:


What I Did:


  • The Early Espresso base measures 5-1/2 inches by 8-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches.
  • The Pool Party cardstock layer measures 4-1/8 inches by 5-3/8 inches.
  • Each of the DSP slanted pieces measures 5 inches by 3-3/4 inches. I outlined the Pool Party DSP with Early Espresso ink so it didn’t blend into the cardstock.
  • While I had the DSP out, I trimmed a piece of the Early Espresso DSP to 6 inches by 2 inches for the envelope flap.
  • After stamping the sentiment in Early Espresso, I cropped it using a die from the scalloped contours die set. Then, I cut an Early Espresso mat for it.
  • I used some of the foam adhesive sheets on Early Espresso and cropped both words using the Love You More dies.
  • The coffee cup and the cookies were also stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock and cropped using the Love You More dies. I stamped the coffee cup steam and cookies directly on the DSP.
  • I adhered everything using multipurpose glue, except for the coffee cup and one of the cookies. For those, I used dimensionals.

Thank you very much for stopping by my blog today!
