Perk Up Quad | Close to My Heart

Recently I received some happy mail from my Chris Franco who is also a CTMH Consultant.  Have you seen their new Perk Up set?!

This quad [Quad means four espresso shots] didn’t take too long to design.  I used the same overall card design and concentrated on two different background panels.

First up is Happy Sweater Weather:

Let’s chat about the Cats & Bats pattern paper and coordinating pocket cards that were on the CTMH clearance [sorry, they’re sold out now] for only $5.  That star strip was the label part of the 12×12 paper.  I’ve managed to snag several awesome deals over the last couple of years.  Definitely worth it to watch that particular section on their site.  The coffee cup sleeve was stamped in a stone ink and I embellished it with a pumpkin brad that I had in my stash.  I’ve been enjoying adding teal to my fall color combo.

Here’s a card for you cocoa fans:
That multi-colored strip is another 12×12 label strip.  I was happy to add the pop of green [my favorite color].  The sentiment worked well with the pre printed lines on the pocket card.

Next up is a Pumpkin Spice design:

I paper pieced the to go cup.  The web was a 4×6 pocket card.  This is the only card that has copic coloring and really it’s just a smidge of coloring.

My final card is a latte design:

This is definitely my FAVORITE design but it is also the least postal friendly.  I adore all the texture on this one from the shaker style and the added cork sentiment strip.

I actually started off trying to design 4 postal friendly cards.  A horrible fail, I only ended up with one that is truly postal friendly.  That’s okay, I don’t mind slapping on more postage.
