Hey everyone! Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I know this is going to be a busy week with everyone getting ready for Christmas, but I did want to pop in and stamp with you. Today I am sharing one of the cards we made at my Stamp Club event last Friday. Everyone loves to give coffee shop gift cards for presents and why just use their card holders when you can really personalize it? Were you able to watch my FB Live? If not, you can catch the replay here on my Youtube Channel here. I would love it if you would like and share my video, and if you’re aren’t a subscriber yet, feel free to subscribe so you know when I upload videos.

Here are the measurements for our project:

  • Card base in Crumb Cake ink cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • Early Espresso cardstock, 1 cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″ for the front and the inside layer cut at 4″ x 7″, scored at 5 1/4″
  • Very Vanilla cardstock, 2 cut at 3 3/4″ x 5″, 1 embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder
  • Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP, 2 cut at 1″ x 4″

Once all of your pieces are cut and ready to go, stamp the coffee cup in Early Espresso ink on a scrap of Very Vanilla and punch it out with the 2 1/4″ circle punch. Then die cut or punch a 2 1/2″ circle of Mint Macaron cardstock. Unfortunately the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch from Stampin’ Up! retired awhile back, but this is exactly why I keep all of mine.Ā  šŸ˜‰ Next stamp your coffee cup image, again in Early Espresso ink, on a scrap of the DSP and cut out just the little sleeve and glue it to the coffee cup. Now stamp your sentiment for the front of the card in Early Espresso ink on the lower right corner of the embossed layer of Very Vanilla. Don’t use a lot of pressure when stamping on this as you don’t want to smear the ink or flatten the embossed cardstock. Glue this to the front layer of Early Espresso cardstock, and then both to the card front. Next glue the strip of DSP just above the sentiment and add the coffee cup circles with dimensionals and then add two rhinestones.

For the inside, stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso ink and glue that layer to the long layer of Early Espresso leaving a 1/4″ space at the top and then glue to the inside of the card. To create the thumb hole for the gift card, take a circle punch, I used the 1 1/2″ circle punch and punch the small opening. Add a small strip of Tear & Tape adhesive to each edge of the layer below the score line and then fold up and attach to the layer. Glue the stip of DSP to the layer and you are finished.

Isn’t that cute? The perfect way to give a gift card! And don’t forget to decorate your envelope! I just stamped the row of coffee cups in Early Espresso ink and colored the heart with the Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends Marker. Just a quick way to coordinate your envelope with your project!

So what do you think?? Isn’t it cute and a good way to use up those little pieces of Designer Series Paper too! No this stamp set is due to retire at the end of this catalog period on January 4th, so if you don’t have it yet, it’s time to order it! You can go to my online store here and when you order $40.00 or more using Host Code CJC6A6AP, I’ll send you a free embellishment. We all love getting that Happy Mail!

I will be back tomorrow for another CASE-ing Tuesday project, so be sure to stop by, then I am taking the rest of the week off to spend time with my family. Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a great rest of your Monday!
