Coffee Lover's Blog Hop with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

Happy Friday everyone!! I cannot believe that September is almost over!!

Today is National Coffee Day and I am here with a card that I created a card using CAS-ual Fridays Stamps as part of a Coffee Lover's Blog Hop at the Coffee Lovers Cardmakers Blog.

Hop on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog for all the links to some fabulous cards and fun prizes!!

I created a card that would hold a gift card.

I started off stamping the background of a 5" by 11" piece of kraft card stock that I had folded down the middle using the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Peace, Love and Coffee Stamp set. I then used a corner rounder to round the edges. I inked up the edges using two types of brown Distress Ink.

Next I die cut a a tag using the Tag Buddies Fri-Dies and a blue coffee cup using the Coffee Cup Fri-Dies.

I used Distress Ink to blend brown around the edges of the tag, added a scalloped red piece of card stock to the edge and some ribbon at the top. I adhered the tag using foam adhesive. I stamped a sentiment on to the coffee cup in brown using the CAS-ual Fridays Hot Coffee stamp set. I adhered the cup over the tag. I opened the card up and used 1/4" score tape on either side of the card to make a pocket.

I set this aside and created a little insert for inside the pocket. I folded a piece of 3 1/2" by 8 1/2" piece of kraft card stock and stamped a background on the front of the pocket using the Peace, Love, and Coffee set. I then used the So Pretty stamp set for the sentiment.

I then inked up the edges of the entire panel with two colors of Distress Ink. I tucked a gift card inside and it was ready to slide into the pocket!!

Here are both the pocket and gift card insert side by side. This was so fun to make and I cannot wait to send it to my friend!!!

I thank you for taking the time to stop by today. Have a fabulous Friday!!
