Welcome to our November Sneak Peeks at Flourishes! We’re really excited to show off this month’s sets to you, because we know they’ll be ones you’ll want to use over and over again. Each of them convey a real sense of warmth and will be perfect for any occasion you have with friends and family. Today’s set is one we’ve been anticipating with great excitement because we think it’s fabulous! Introducing….Grab a Cup.
I love a good cup of coffee or tea, so I am super excited to be working with this set. For today, I made a coffee gift card. I have some friends who "need" their coffee regularly, so I thought a gift card holder would come in handy this holiday season. There are many gift card holder tutorials out there, so I won't bore you with yet another. I'll just give you a quick review of what I did for this one in a bit.
I stamped the coffee cup image, three times, with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink; once onto Cryogen White cs, once onto Flourishes Classic White cs, and once onto Flourishes Classic Kraft cs. I colored the cup with Copics, as well as the sleeve and logo, and then embossed the sleeve with a Sizzix embossing folder to give it some texture.
Finished Gift Card Holder size: 2 3/4" x 3 1/2"
Cardstock: 2 3/4" x 10"
Score: 3 1/2" and 7"
Punch half circle notch at short end.
Tape or glue sides of short end, fold up and adhere. (I used 1/8" Scor-tape)
Here's a look at the inside with the gift card included.
Santa's List by Teresa Collins, and the sentiment was stamped with Oasis Green VersaMagic Ink, and Toffee Crunch Memento Ink.
Here are the links to the Copics I used: C-1, E31, R29, R27, R24, BG15, BG13, and BG11
