It's the final day to register for my September Stamp-of-the-Month class featuring Coffee Café! My basic kit comes in the stamp set, but if you already have this amazing set, you can either substitute a different stamp set or order my cards-only kit!
Today, I'm sharing some cute little coffee gift card holders that we'll be making with the class kit!
How many Starbucks gift cards do YOU give throughout the year? For many, it's the gift card of choice for friends, teachers, neighbors & co-workers! The Coffee Café stamp set could not be more perfect for creating coffee gift card holders!
For the Coffee Café Stamp-of-the-Month class kit, I designed a cute gift card holder that can be slipped inside a card, hung on a package or wine bottle, or even added to the front of a card as the focal point. Class participants will make two of these holders with the kit.
Gift Card Holder—I created the base of the holder with a 7-1/2" x 2-3/4" piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock. The size allows you to make 4 tags from one sheet of card stock! I used the Simply Scored tool to score the piece at the 2-1/2" mark to make the pocket fold. For the decorative top, I slipped the top of the tag under the cutting side of the largest Lots of Labels Framelit. The rest of the card stock comes up through the framelit and rests on top of it, so only the one side is under the cutting blade.
I secured the pocket closed with Tear & Tape down each side. TIP: There is just enough room for the gift card if you keep the line of tape flush with the edge as much as possible.
Pocket Background—I adhered a 2-5/8" x 2-1/4" piece of Coffee Break Designer Series Paper on the pocket for the background. I embossed a 2-5/8" x 3/8" strip of Crumb Cake card stock with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing Folder, then adhere it with more Tear & Tape.
Sentiment—I stamped the Coffee Café phrase in Early Espresso (of course!) onto Whisper White card stock, then punched it out with the Everyday Label Punch. It's popped up with Dimensionals. I also stamped the coffee beans image in Espresso and die-cut them out with the Coffee Cups Framelits. It's popped up with Mini Dimensionals.
Tiny Coffee Cup—That mini coffee cup image is cut from the Coffee Break DSP using one of the dies from the Coffee Cups Framelits. I love that Stampin' Up! included a die to cut out this unique image. I used a Soft Sky marker to color in the cup for a little more color on the image. It's adhered with SNAIL onto the label.
Ribbon Topper—I punched a 1/4" hole at the top of the tag to thread through some about 6" of 3/8" Soft Sky Classic Weave Ribbon. If I were to do it over again, I think I would have used the 1/8" Handheld Punch, so less "hole" would be showing. TIP:If you want to hang the tag on a gift, you would want to cut the ribbon a little longer. I secured the ribbon by tying some Linen Thread around it into a bow.
Two Cool—The second gift card holder is pretty much the same, but it begins with a Soft Sky base. I featured the other mini coffee up image from the DSP here and topped the tag with Old Olive 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon.
Look how this color combo matches a winter-themed Starbucks card! I love when everything coordinates beautifully!
