A Cup of Thanks Pop `n Cuts Card

Hey everyone! Gretchen here and I’ve got a fun tutorial today using some of Karen Burniston’s new dies from her Journey collection that was released this month!

Karen’s new Journey collection is her largest release to date and has a ton of new Pop `n Cuts, including some that are horizontal and as well as a new base die. You can check out the entire Journey line on Karen Burniston’s page on the Sizzix website HERE.

To start, insert the Mug & Heart PNC into the base (for this project I am using the original base die) and line up the tick marks. Lay your cardstock on top, sandwich with extended cutting plates, and run through your Big Shot machine. Fold your cardstock PNC base piece according to package directions.

Note: even though this is a horizontal card, it still has the same four folds as the original PNC’s.

Cut a piece of patterned paper to 4” x 7-1/2”. Round two corners and then emboss a portion of the paper that will be used for the front of the card (about 5-1/2” long). Decide on your placement, score card and adhere your embossed paper to your cardstock base.

Stamp a mug and sentiment onto white cardstock, color, and cut out using the 3-1/8” x 2-1/4” Wavy Label Framelits. To cut you will need to use your Multipurpose Platform.

Use the flower from the Flower & Heart Movers & Shapers set with coordinating patterned paper to create a heart. Glue heart to the front center of the stamped mug.

Note: you can cut the Movers & Shapers die using the Pop `n Cuts base die.

Outline decorated label piece with black pen and adhere to the right hand portion of your card front.

Next create a mug and heart to decorate the inside of your PNC card base. Insert your flower from the Flower & Heart Movers & Shapers set inside the mug and lay a piece of patterned paper on top of the mug portion but not on the heart. Lay a piece of red cardstock over the heart portion, sandwich with your plates, and cut. Trim the mug and heart away from the folds.

 Glue a red piece of cardstock to put behind the mug and then adhere your entire mug piece to the mug PNC and the heart piece to the heart PNC portion. Use the heart from the Flower & Heart Movers & Shapers set to create “steam” out of light colored cardstock. Glue your heart/steam piece behind the mug, making sure it doesn’t stick out the top of your card.

Finish the inside of your card by adding patterned paper with rounded corners as shown, to the left and right sides of your card. My pieces are are approximately 3-3/4” x 1-1/2” and 3-3/4” x 4”. Stamp a sentiment on the bottom right portion of your card and wa-la! you’re done!

That mug is awesome right? It could be used for coffee, tea, hot chocolate, even a cup of soup! Such a fun die!
