Gift Card Holder....thanks a latte!

  Hi!  Here is my weekly Thursday ShopPumpkinSpice inspiration.  I created this card from My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found Christmas" collection.  I embossed the damask paper with my D'Vine Swirls embossing folder, then lightly sanded to make the swirls "pop."  I popped up the heart and added red Stickles around the border to mimic the red glitter striped MME paper behind it.  I then added glossy accents to "cafe" for added dimension.  Finally I added the Maraschino twine.  I placed the gift card on the shape, then cut thin strips of foam tape around it to form a pocket.  I adhered my top...voila :)

  My daughters' fourth grade teacher loves Starbucks coffee, so I wanted to create a special gift card holder for her.

Supplies:
Cricut cartridge:  Cricut Lite "Love You a Latte" cut @ 7 1/4"
paper:  My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found Christmas" Boughs paper, Tinsel paper, Holly paper, and Trees paper
embossing folder:  Cuttlebug "D'Vine Swirls"
twine:  The Twinery "Maraschino"
Other: red stickles and glossy accents

 Happy Thursday!

I love this! What a great way to showcase the perfect gift for the teacher :) I'm a little jealous though since it's about an hour's drive to our nearest Starbucks...boo.

Morning, June,
I just love this idea! I need something I can whip up for my kids' bus drivers. This is just the ticket I think. Love this idea....super cute with the striped paper and twine detail too. Hope you have a great holiday if I don't get time to stop in again.
