I’m up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog today featuring these sweet kitty in a cup box cards from Doodlebug Designs on the Lori Whitlock shop. I just love their artwork and couldn’t resist buying the cut files for my Cricut when I saw them available.
These fun cards fold up flat and fit in an envelope to be mailed. Isn’t that awesome!?!
I simply used my Cricut to cut out all the pieces in different colors and assembled them with a combination of liquid glue and tape runner. I stamped the sentiment on the tea bad from the Newton’s Nook Cup of Cocoa stamp set. I thought it was just too perfect of a sentiment and it fit great too!
I made this first card to look like our cat Hercules with my favorite teal and melon color combo for the mug. I did some distress ink blending on the edges of the pieces for added dimension and a little pink chalk for his cheeks.
For this second one, I really wanted to try fun patterned paper for the mug and decided on a dark gray/black kitty to give good contrast. One of my hearts got demolished by the Cricut so it’s only got 4 but I like it.
I plan to pop these fun cards in the mail with a tea bag or two for some of my tea loving friends. This project inspired me to try some other things so stay tuned for variations of this project in the future.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
