Vintage Coffee Cup gift card holder & gift tags, too!
Now cut a wedge off each long side, starting at the top folded edge, down to the 1/2" mark as shown above. Repeat on opposite side of card to create a "coffee cup" shape.
Stamp flower from Creative Elements stamp set randomly on "cup" front using Cherry Cobbler ink.
Emboss front of card only using the Elegant Lines embossing folder.
From Whisper White c/s, cut a piece 3-1/2" x 1-1/2", fold in half lengthwise and round off both bottom corners with the Corner punch to create the "lid". Run "lid" through the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.
Adhere in place over top of card using Sticky Strip (love that stuff!).
From Cherry Cobbler: Cut one piece 1" x 3-1/2". Run through crimper to create "band". Adhere in place. Trim edges to fit "cup".
Your "cup" should look like this! How'd it go?
Cut 7" of Crumb Cake seam binding. Adhere around band with the cut ends meeting in the center on front of the cup. This way they'll be covered by the embellishment.
Using Early Espresso ink, stamp sentiment on Whisper White c/s and then cut out using large oval punch.
Using Early Espresso card stock, cut out one scalloped oval. Adhere in place at center of band.
Using Stampin' Dimensionals adhere sentiment in place.
Adhere pearls in place.
You're done! Isn't it cute? Hope you didn't spill your coffee!!
