Good Sunday morning all! I have a double bill of Thanks A Latte cards for you today. They are both very simple so I thought I would give you two today. For the first one, I picked some decorative paper from my stash that was a blue gingham pattern. I cut two of the Pacific Ocean Borders out of coconut white card. I added them to the edge of a wide strip of white card as accents and attached it down the centre of my background. I cut three of the Pacific Ocean tags (two of one style and one of the other style) and added mounting foam and attached down the centre of the strip. I cut the teapots and cups out of blue dusk card and added them to the top and bottom tag with mounting foam. I cut the thanks a latte die and sprayed it with glue and glittered it with Periwinkle Polished Silk Glitter and glued it in the centre of the middle tag. The card was completed with a simple white on white mat and layer. The finished dimensions are 7" x 7 1/2" in size. Scroll down for card number two.
Card number two uses the same Thanks A Latte die set but with a brown and white theme. I selected two coordinating decorative papers from my stash. Brown and white stripes for the background and brown and white dots for the centre. I cut the In The Garden Shadow Box out of dark brown card. I cut away one side of it and added mounting foam to the back and seated it over the polka dot patterned paper. I added the donuts and muffins to the top squares, adding Cosmic lacquer to the donut to look like frosting. I used the mugs and coffee pot in the centre rectangle and lacquered them as well. Next, I added the Thanks a Latte glittered with bronze polished silk glitter atop a small hexagon to the bottom square. I completed the card with white and brown mats and layers. The finished dimensions are 6" x 6 3/4" in size.
