Today I am showing you a great little coffee themed gift set featuring a card shaped like a Coffee Travel Cup and a Coffee Folder that pops open to reveal sachets of coffee inside.
You could add a stick or two of Biscotti, chocolate coated stirring sticks or squares and there is one sweet little treat to make for a teacher, friend or co-worker – it would also be perfect for Mother’s Day and for Teacher Appreciation gifts – the end of the school year is fast approaching…yikes!
Please read on for details on how to make both the card and the folder – and to find the link to my free printable tutorial and as always, this week’s blog candy…
Don’t you just LOVE that stamped image? SUPER CUTE! It is from the Hostess set A Slice of Life that you can find on pg 4 of the Occasions Mini Catalog that features beautiful images – BUT it is only available for another 4 days because it retires on Saturday along with that Mini Catalog – so if you want it, be sure to place your order before then!
Firstly that Coffee Folder…
It is made using Early Espresso cardstock (it had to be really, didn’t it?!) and onto it I added a layer of Soft Suede that I textured using my Big Shot and Square Lattice Embossing Folder.
I trimmed it with a border that I made using the Scallop Trim Border Punch and added some cute Pearls. My Belly Band is decorated using a piece of polka dotted paper from In Color Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack – cute!
The white Belly Band slides off of that folder and the lid pops open to reveal three sachets of coffee along with a space to write a note – this folder is designed to hold Starbucks Via sachets that you can find in most grocery and big box stores…
And now onto that ADORABLE co-ordinating Coffee Travel Cup Card for which I give all credit to a wonderful stamping friend of mine – Deb Bryson – who mailed a card just like it to me this week…
We are in a monthly swap group at Stampin’ Addicts and when it arrived I just knew I had to use that design to create a card to go with my coffee folder which had been in the works for a few weeks…THANK YOU DEB!
Isn’t it cool? My card base using Crumb Cake and I added a layer of that polka dotted paper to tie it into my Coffee Folder.
The coffee sleeve is created using Soft Suede cardstock that I ran through my Crimping Tool which you can find on pg 198 of the Catalog – LOVE the effect you can create with that tool…
I added that same stamped image and some cute Pearls to finish it off and just love how it turned out…
