Love You A Latte

Good Day! This is such an easy little card you will all want to add this to your card stash. Many people in my family live away from us so I am alwasys looking for little cards that remind them of just how much I love them and miss them.... this card is perfect for that. I chose a subtle color for the base of the card from Kand Company and used scraps from a layout for the pot. And as usual I doubled the card up as I don't like to make just one card. This way I can use one to send now and one for when the occassion arises later.

This quick little video of the making of designing of the Love You A Latte card. I started with just a simple rectangle and frame that is welded together that is an A2 size when cut. (8.50x11.00) I keep this save as A2 Window so that when I need a quick card all I need to do is fill in the inside of the card, weld, cut and assemble for a quick easy card.

This is what my Gypsy screen looks like. I make the base and then just double each of the components so in just 1 cut I have two cards. Be sure to score your cards as this is a large window and you don't want to compromise the strength of this card.

I used distress ink on all my edges and went a little darker than usual as I wanted it to match the distressed look of the base paper I chose.

 Even the pot is inked so it has a uniform look as you can see from this close up.

Now isn't this a great little card? Click HERE if you would like to download it for your Gypsy too.
