Pumpkin Latte

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne posting a card today using a super versatile die from the Christmas Part 2 collection.

Before I get to my card I'd like to encourage you to  check out the Christmas Part 3 and Halloween dies that are on sale right now on the website.  Look for samples from the design team coming soon.

Now on to today's card.  I used the Coffee and Cocoa Warm Wishes set.  With all the coffee sentiment stamp sets out there, this die set with it's variety of mugs and cups could be used for virtually any occasion.  Today I went with a fall theme - I love my pumpkin spice!
To make this a fall themed card all I needed to do was change my paper and colors to go along with my pumpkin spice sentiment.
I used three dies (the second and third from largest and the second smallest) from the Double Stitched Rectangle set.
Then I cut the latte pieces from coordinating card stock.
And glued them together.
For the card base, I decided to use a green A2 base.  I don't normally use colored bases much but the color really worked well on this one.  I cut a rectangle from brown card stock 1/16" larger on each side than the leaf rectangle to give it some definition.
I cut a piece of ribbon 15" long and tied it around my leaf panel.
I then assembled the card and used foam dots to pop the latte cup off the orange panel.
This was a super easy card to make but really makes an impact.  Just by elongating one of the rectangles you could use several of the mugs instead of just one.  I LOVE this set!

Thanks for stopping by - have a relaxing and creative weekend!

Nice job moving your latte from Christmas to fall -- just by changing the color scheme.
