Welcome to another Makin’ It Monday! Today, we’re celebrating one of life’s simple pleasures: coffee. AKA Latte Love! Whether you’re a dedicated aficionado or just enjoy the occasional cup, there’s something undeniably comforting about that first sip in the morning, especially on a Monday. Now that’s really Latte Love.

For this week’s project, I wanted to capture that cozy feeling with a simple yet charming Latte Love card. Drawing inspiration from the recently released Latte Love Collection from the Online Exclusives by Stampin’ Up!, I found myself gravitating towards a suite that perfectly encapsulates the warmth and comfort of a good cup of joe. You can find a full selection of the Online Exclusives my Stampin’ Up Store.

Latte Love Thank You Card

I opted for a minimalist approach, much like my preference for a classic black coffee. Using Calypso Coral and Lost Lagoon cardstock, I stamped my coffee cups, even by using line art images this eliminate the need for coloring. A quick run through a die-cut machine or a snip with some trusty paper snips adds dimension without sacrificing simplicity.

To create just that touch of texture I dry embossed the white background using the upcoming So Swirly embossing folder, reminding me of wisps of steam rising from a freshly brewed cup. I know it currently is not available because it is not yet released I thought I’d give you a bit of a sneak peek. And you are going to be in awe of it’s size. Coming it at 6″ x 8″ it will expand embossing to a greater variety of paper crafting projects. I am already dreaming about the.

And those coffe splatters? They’re a playful nod to the inevitable little spills that happen when you’re in a rush – just like me on any given morning.

What I love most about this card is its versatility. Despite its eye catching appearance, it comes together in a flash, proving that you can create something beautiful in less time than it takes to savor a latte. So whether you’re crafting before your morning caffeine fix or winding down with a cup in hand, may this Latte Love card bring a smile to your face and a warm hug to your heart. Happy Makin’ It Monday!
