Charming Cafe

The Charming Cafe stamp set and coordinating framelits create a beautiful European cafe scene.  This set has endless possibilities!

See the end of the post for a complete product list.
  • Whisper White Thick card base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
  • Fresh Florals DSP: 4" x 5 1/4"
  • Whisper White: 3 1/2" x 3 3/4"
  • Whisper White: 3 3/4" x 4"

Tips & Tricks

  • I used Stampin' Blends alcohol markers to do all of the coloring on this card.  
  • I stamped to cafe scene on the smaller Whisper White cardstock panel. I this piece slightly smaller than the top layer to give me some wiggle room to center the cafe scene inside of the floral frame.
  • I found it easier to stamp and color the floral frame before cutting out the center with the framelits.  This layer was attached to the cafe scene with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • There are no mistakes in stamping - only room for embellishment!  The framelit for the floral frame is a very close fit with the stamped image.  Even though I was using my magnetic plate, I used a small piece of washi tape to insure the framelits would not move in the big shot. My mistake was using an older washi tape that was very sticky.  When I removed it, it took a bit of the ink and cardstock with it.  Not wanting to start over, I covered it up with the bow!
