Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop--and Coupon Code



Hi Everyone!

Today, I'm joining in the fun for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I used stamps, dies and sequins from the Kat Scrappiness shop to create a fun shaker gift card with tons of dimension. 


I started out by die cutting 2 rectangular panels using the Never Ending Rectangle Die Set.  I cut a yellow panel with the 2nd largest rectangle and the kraft panel from the 3rd largest. Using the rectangle die makes getting your panels perfectly straight a cinch.  No more crooked edges!  I die cut the Teacup Stack Craft Die from Poppystamps into the kraft panel as well as out of a piece of Gina K. Turquoise Sea cardstock. 


After covering over the back of the die cut window on the kraft panel with acetate, I adhered the die cut teacups to the front of the window with a Zig 2-Way Glue Pen, flipped the panel over and created the shaker area by lining it with foam tape.


I created a notecard from white cardstock 4.25x 5.5" and adhered the yellow panel to the front.  I adhered a small piece of kraft cardstock to section off the area where the kraft shaker window would be.  This way the background would be the same color as the front kraft panel.  I filled the area with sequins from the Sparkling Manhattan Mix.


I die cut another teacup from Gina K.'s Passionate Pink cardstock along with some adhesive foam and adhered the two together.  


After adhering the shaker window to the front of the card, I layered the foam-backed teacups over the shaker teacups.  I really like the shimmer of those coffee colored sequins!


I stamped a sentiment from Echo Park's But First Coffee stamp set onto a white piece of cardstock with Versafine Onyx ink.  To add some shine, I covered the black ink with Ranger Clear Embossing Powder and heat embossed it. 


I made a quick gift card pocket for the inside of the card.  A perfect way to thank a teacher or bus driver with a little coffee "pick-me-up".  I used Lawn Fawn's Let's Polka In The Meadow paper pack and decorated it with some hearts from Doodlebug.


A Scor-Buddy comes in handy for this.  All I did was take the patterned paper and cut it to 2 times the height of the gift card, give or take.  I left about 1/2 inch on either side to make score lines.  


I scored the pocket in half and made a snip on either side so I could fold up the pocket and seal the side folds together using Scor Tape.  I used a circle punch to cut a notch in the front.  


I added a few wood veneer leaves to the front of my card to go with the fall theme.
