Coffee Gift Card

Here's the inspiration photo for the current Double D challenge which is Tea and/or Coffee. My husband is an avid fan of WaWa coffee and one thing he enjoys is a gift card to buy his coffee there. I made a gift tag/card holder for him.

Here's the holder, cut from a snippet of dsp to look like a coin envelope, but instead of a flap to close it, I used a large punch to cut a circle at the top to insert the tag/gift card.  I used a MFT fishtail banner cut from turquoise, and added a SU! sentiment done with a hexagon punch.

Here's the kraft tag that was done with a SU! scalloped top punch and a corner rounder. I used a stamp from SU! Healing Hugs with 2 different colors of brown ink to make the background, then sponged the edges with antique linen distress ink. The coffee cup image has been among my stamped images for years, and I have no clue who made it, but I colored it with Copics, clear heat-embossed it, and then fussy cut it and placed it on the tag. I added some SU! chocolate chip ribbon with neutral twine tied around it. The "Break Time" sentiment was done with stick stamps on turquoise with early espresso ink and cut to fit the tag. The gift card will be tucked inside the pocket along with this tag.

 I'm sharing this with the Double D Challenge this week which is Tea and/or Coffee.

I'm also sharing with the Shopping our Stash SOS #364 challenge which is to get "krafty" or in other words, use kraft paper

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee or tea today while you visit :) Have a great day!

Oh my, Carol, I LOVE this! What a brilliant idea for gifting someone a coffee gift card! Love the colors and stamps you used! So nifty that your tag pulls out to reveal the gift card! I may have to try and see if I can case this for a friend who is an avid coffee drinker. Your artwork always inspires me! Thank you for sharing! I LOVE this! :)
