I nspired by Prepare to Dye Papercrafts, Sarah Fleming, this beauty has wow factor and is so much fun to create!
Cut an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of yardstick in 1/2 to create a card stock base card that you score at 4 1/4. One piece of card stock makes 2 cards. This card used whisper white as a base.
Using pear pizzazz card stock (come in the coffee break card stock pack), cut a piece at 4 1/8 inches by 5 3/8 inches.
Using the pear pizzazz piece, lay the mask of your choice (I used the bricks pattern) over the card stock. Apply some of the embossing paste, using the palate knife of you choice, over the mask to cover as many of the boxes as you'd like in whatever design you'd like. At that point, drop about 3-4 drops of the early espresso reinker on top of the paste (yes, still on top of the mask) and mix it around with the knife. Do not put your knife back into the paste, just use it to mix what you have applied. Tip: do not leave any piles of ink, it will make the paper wet, and try to skim off any extra along the edges so it's easier to remove the mask. Remove the mask in a peeling motion. Immediately wash the mask and knife in water. Honestly, you only need to run them under the tap and wipe it off with your hand. Super easy.
When paste is dry (only takes about 10 mins or more), adhere it to the card base.
Cut 2 strips of designer series paper. 1 piece is 1 inch wide by 3 3/4s in length. The other is 1/2 inch by 3 3/4s in length. Adhere the wide one to the pasted card stock lining it up on one side. Adhere the other from the other edge of the paper, overlapping it on the wider piece.
Stamp your coffee cup, lid and sentiment in early espresso and garden green inks. Using the Big Shot and coordinating framelits, cut the images out and adhere them to the card using dimensionals for the wow factor!
