Happy Friday! It’s Julissa of Paper Gems by Jules on the blog with a festive card featuring the new “Latte Santa” stamp kit. This Saint Nick is getting his java on and what better background to pair him with than the “Coffee is Life” background stamp. Let’s get inky!
Step 1. Stamp the “Coffee is Life” background stamp using Gina K – Jelly Bean Green ink or something similar. I used my Misti to make sure I get a solid print on the background, but you can also make it grungy and patchy if you’d like.
Step 2. Trim the background to 4″ x 5.25″ and then mat the background on a red card stock measured at XXXX and adhere to a white card base.
Step 3. Stamp “Latte Santa”, color him in using your favorite medium. I used Copics and listed the colors below and then fussy cut him out. Line him up to your stamped background and trim him accordingly to fit your card front.
- Hat, suspenders and mug: R59, R29, R27, R08
- Hat fur and beard: C2, C0, 0
- Shirt: BG99, BG96, BG93 (YG17 over it all to match the green in the background ink used)
- Pants and belt: B99, B97, B95, C10, C8, C6
- Skin: E11, E21, E51, YR01
- Coffee: E25, E23, 0
Step 4. Using foam tape, I adhere “Latte Santa” to the card front.
Step 5. Stamp the sentiment “Java Merry Christmas…” and die cut using a speech bubble die and adhere with more foam tape.
Step 6. For the interior, I used another sentiment from the “Latte Santa” and stamped it on white card stock and die cut it using the Scallop & Stitched Rectangles and matted it onto red card stock.
This fun and festive card is super easy to make and is guaranteed to fill your coffee loving friend’s cup with joy!
