Tips & Instructions For An Extra Tall Card

+ Cut two pieces of Whisper White thick cardstock. One at 3-1/2″ x 7″ and the other one at 3-1/2″ x 7-1/2″.

+ Score the piece that is 7-1/2″ long at 1/2″ on the long side. Add Tear & Tape adhesive to the scored 1/2″ piece and adhere to the backside of the other piece of cardstock.

+ Cut a piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock at 3-1/4″ x 6-3/4″ and ink blend. The inks I used are Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, and Highland Heather.

+ Next splatter small droplets of water on the ink blended background, I used an aquapainter and flicked the water. Next I added some Frost White shimmer paint splatters. Let it dry.

+ Stamp all of your coffee cups in the same coordinating colors and add to your ink blended background with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

+ Add ink blended panel to the card base
