Introducing Cuppa Love...

Welcome back to another group post by Papertrey Ink! Today we are previewing a new stamp set and die called Cuppa Love! You are SURE to love these pretty patterns you'll see today. I know I do, can't wait to play with them more to create backgrounds and such.
The first card is unique in that I cut out the front of the card in the shape of the cup with the Cuppa Love die, and at the same time, embossed the back of the card. To do this, I folded the card in half and placed the die on top, just ABOVE the fold, so it won't cut on top of the fold.
What happens is it will cut the top piece out (the card front), but just emboss the bottom piece of cardstock (the back of your card). Sort of happened as a happy accident! Used the Cuppa Love stamps and dies to adorn the front of the card. Kept it simple, because when I looked up Fire King mugs, most of them were white with colorful flowers on the front center.
Here is the inside, stamped with Keep It Simple: Get Well.

The second card is simply embossed on the front with the cup die. To do this, I add a scrap piece of cardstock over my folded card and then run it through. It will cut the top cardstock out (scrap), but not the second piece underneath (your card front)! I made a pocket with the Cuppa Love die and stamped some of the florals on it from the set.
This is the stamping I did before assembling the second card. I decided to do the pocket after playing around with the stamps, so some of it was covered up. Cute just like that, isn't it? But you know me, I have to add, add, add...
Added the pocket and the little tag. I just adore this little card set, so cute!
