Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Card Two

I'm back with another card. And one I'm much, much happier with. It feels like I'm back on track with this card, and for those of you who know me, I'm pretty sure you'll agree. If you're not playing along, but you'd like to, you can find all the details here at the CLBH. Just grab your favorite beverage, have a leisurely gander through the gallery, and then link up. Who knows, you could be a winner!!



For this card, I've tried something new to me. I used a print and cut file from my Cameo Silhouette for the first time here. I turned it into a gift card holder for a Starbucks card! 


You can just see the "FALL" themed gift card peeking out behind the leaves on the right side. The base is a very treasured, nearly-the-last-piece-of- Parisian Breeze cardstock from SU. (I know you know what I'm feeling Jen...) All the other papers are scraps, yippee!!! A bit of KF twine and a random button that happened to match. An AE stamp in Ranger Potting Soil ink, and a fussy cut sticker (can't deal with those white edges...) from Pebbles. Oh, and the die is from ME. Whew! This would make any one of my HS or college age grandkids happy. With that, I know you want to get onto the next one, so will wish you all happy dances.

Neat idea to arrange the leaves geometrically like this and use as a border for the gift card. Such a cool card indeed!

Tracey McNeely said...

One comment for both of your cards Bev. The cute Halloween coffee mug and love how you combined sets together. This card with the sweet blue cup and the peek a boo gift card, fabulous!

Maureen Hayes said...

What a great idea for a coffe lover... A coffee themed card with a Starbucks gift card enclosed! This turned out beautifully.

Love this graphic creation Bev! That fall leaves at the edge with a gift card holder is a great idea! love it! Happy hopping!

Tenia Nelson said...

So so cool!! :)

Geri said...

Gorgeous colors! Parisian Breeze??? I honestly don't think I've ever seen this SU color. Can see why you 'saved' it - love it!

Great idea for a gift card holder! No surprise that the sproinky thread had me lovin' this card the moment I saw it! Print & Cut - haven't tried it yet. I think I am just too cheap to use up my computer ink (cuz we can't buy the cartridges in town).

LOVE the leave :)

Geri said...

...ooops....hit the send button too quick....

"love the leaves - reminds me of the Lakehouse!!!"

I Card Everyone said...

Lots of layers, heaps of CAH Ute and sproinky thread??? Sorry Geri, I couldn't resist! LOve your card, Bevie!!

Deepti said...

Such a stunning design! Fab colors and I like the leaves going off the edge of the panel :)

Jen Mitchell said...

You are very brave indeed to use that paper. I've still got some treasured pieces in my stash and though I look at it from time to time I am not tempted to actually use it! Some day. Some day, I say to myself. I'm glad you used it to such a wonderful degree. The leaves are so colorful, I love that bit of twine behind the button and, of course, a cup of coffee is always a welcome thing!

Marlena M. said...

I love this~such a great idea! I'll have to look for that print and cut~
