Holiday Coffee Gift Card Holder


Emma (My Creative Time) asked me to make a project to teach at her class on Saturday.  This is what I came up with.  I began by die cutting the gift card holder out of double-sided paper, using her Embossed Gift Card Holder.


This adorable coffee cup was cut at 4 1/4" from the Cricut Love You a Latte cartridge (it cuts with a puff of steam above it, which I didn't use).  I stamped the sentiment from Emma's Mixed Holiday Sentiments stamp set.


Since the inside pattern was too dark to write on, I cut a label with Emma's Fancy Frame die and stamped it with the coordinating stamp.

Recipe:

sei "Christmas Mint" Patterned Paper
Papertrey Ink Kraft, Vintage Cream, & Dark Chocolate Cardstock
My Creative Time "Embossed Gift Card Holder" Die
My Creative Time "Fancy Frame" Die & Stamp
My Creative Time "Mixed Holiday Sentiments" Stamp Set
Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy Ink
ColorBox Cat's Eye Chalk Ink
Papertrey Ink Rustic Jute Button Twine & Vintage Button

This is so cute. Love that Coffee Cup. I don't think my DD will be able to drink coffee yet though, LOL! That's my DD's middle name Leilani.

Hugs,
