I've accumulated soooo many die-cut/printed elements through the years and just toss them into what I call my "doo-dad" box as I go along without using them. I decided to just sort through the box and pull out some elements and make something with them, and I came up with this gift card. I'd printed the Starbucks logo for a project a long time ago, so that's where this gift card holder started. I pulled die-cut white and kraft circles, along with a stitched heart die cut, and layered them all up on a die-cut circle that was cut from a herringbone background I'd made with strips of Coastal Cabana dsp. I pulled out the green and teal cardstock snippets and designed a gift card. Here is what it looks like opened...
The stamped sentiment panel was done with a Gina Marie Designs stamp and I added a couple strips of matching dsp and cardstock to dress it up inside. There is no gift card in the slot - just a piece of white card to show you how the card is inserted. I used the SU! word window punch to create the opening to hold the card.
I'm going to enter this into these two challenges ...

Wicked cool! I too keep logos and wrappings and etc. to craft with for just this type of idea! You rock!
Oh I just love this, Carol! I am not a Starbucks coffee drinker but I love this little gift card holder! Cool idea to print out the logo and I just love all your stitched layers! Awesome sentiment on the inside, too! Super cute and this will surely make someone smile and make their day! TFS and enjoy your Monday! :)
Definitely worth looking through stuff Carol as this FABULOUS gift card shows, it's just Wonderful.
Not a coffee drinker at ALL here but I LOVE this! I make plenty of coffee cards though cause so many others are. If I ever need to give Starbucks GC I'll remember to look online and print out the decal like that! So cool! This card is sure to make someone very happy!
Wonderful coffee gift card design.
That is just awesome, Carol! I just told my DD the other day, I would not know how to order something if I DID go there! LOL! I am too old school, I guess. Those doo-dad boxes sure do come in handy. They even spark our creativity! Nice job.
Wonderful gift card holder, Carol, a very creative design and lovely colours. xx
I think that your "doo-dad" box is filled as my organizers :D But you are always be able to use some pieces from it to make something beautiful!! Love that herringbone background circle layered with the heart and the coffee stamp, it's a so striking topper! Beautiful texture on the background and interesting design to make this card as a gift holder!! Great use of your snippets!
Good for you at using some of these fab saved snippets. And didn't it make up into such a classy gift card - LOVED that sentiment! Glad that you found such neat schtuff in your snippety box! TFS & Hugs
Awesome'st' colour her and just love the design. The heart does look as good as the coffee tastes...x
Wonderful gift card holder Carol - I love the design and those colours are really great together. Super to see how a rummage through your doo-dad box turned up trumps! Love it.
Really clever and fun way to present a gift card Carol! I love the colors and I'm with you on the "doo-dad" box, but mine has REALLY grown in size over the years!! LOL!! My son loves Starbucks and this would be a great gift for him! Thanks for sharing! HUGS
What a great gift card holder!
