COFFEE AND FRIENDS
Here are couple of ideas for the coffee lovers in you circle of friends and family. I have made two very different gift card holders, both simple and easy using two Stampin' Up stamp sets: PERFECT BLEND and GORGEOUS GRUNGE (Pages 37 and 109 of the 2013-14 Catalog).
The first card is a piece of Crumb cake card stock cut at 3 1/4 x 8 1/2 and scored at 5 1/4 and 5 1/2, folded up and secured with two small brads. The dp is from some scrap and cut at 3 1/4 x 5. I wrapped a 3/8" ribbon around the card and used the 7/8" scallop punch to cut out the sentiment and tied it to the ribbon with a piece of linen thread. This card can hold a gift card and a few packets of the VIA coffee.
For this card I cut a piece of the Crumb Cake at 5 1/2 x 11 and scored it at 3 3/4, 5 1/2, and 7 1/4. I glued the outside edge of the "W" shape to hold the gift card and used the Word Window Punch to cut out the center of the fold 1" from each end. I stamped the coffee cup twice and cut out the lid andband after stamping the band with the OFF THE GRID (page 108) stamp in Coastal Cabana and brushed the edges of the lid with brown ink and attached them to the cup. Off the Grid was also stamped in Versamark and white embossing powder. The half doily is a pre-cut from Martha Stewart.
