This is my second card created to show how you can use Eileen Hull's dies on a card design - you don't always have to make a 3D item! (see last week's post if you missed my first card!)
This week I used Eileen's Mug and Spoon die as well as her Basket Weave Embossing Folder along with some pretty fall patterned papers!
I placed the patterned paper on the die so the pattern would be along the side and bottom - aren't the florals pretty!? I also cut the mug out of kraft card and glued the patterned paper over it to give the mug some sturdiness. I embossed a piece of Tropical Teal card stock with the basket weave folder and then sponged over it with Ranger Distress Ground Espresso ink and adhered it to the bottom third of the panel.
I adhered another piece of patterned paper on the top half - then adhered the mug over the panel using thick foam dots down the center of the mug and thinner foam dots on the side and handle so the mug is a little curved off the panel. You can see how I sponged the ink thicker over the top to create a rim on the mug. I added 3 rhinestones onto the mug.
I stamped the sentiment right on the mug. I think this design makes a great fall birthday card for a coffee lover!
Please check out Eileen's blog to see other examples of using her fun dies to create cards!
