Hi Dare 2B Artzy Fans

This is my last post as a guest and I have really enjoyed creating for you! I want to thank the wonderful Dare 2B Artzy Team for giving me the opportunity to share with you!

I decided to use the adorable coffee stamp set called Perk Up to make a gift card.  I am going to put it in the mailbox for our awesome postwoman!!!

Designer steps:
Use a light brown card stock base 4 1/4 x 11 and score at 4 1/2, 5 1/2 and 6 1/2.  Use your bone folder and crease the card as shown.
Flip the card over and put a strip of strong tape as shown then press together.  This will form the card holder.
Use a die cut that is the same wideth as a gift card and make the cut through the mountain fold.
Now you are ready to decorate!  Cut 3 pieces of dark brown card stock 4 1/4 x 4 and glue one to the front of the card and 2 to the insides.
Cut 3 pieces of cream card stock 4 x 3 3/4 and stamp before you attach to the card. I used the little coffee beans and one of the great sentimens. The ink used is Memento Rich Cocoa.  Attach the two pieces inside the card then for the front run it through an embossing folder by Tim Holtz then glue to the front of the card

Cut a strip of light brown card stock 11 x 1 inches this will make a band around your gift card to keep it good and safe.   Just take your band and fit it around your card and make a tiny pencil mark as to where you will place the tape

Take a piece of cream card stock and stamp the polka dot coffee cup in black and color with copics: E23, 25, 27 – Y15, 17 – YR16, 68 – R46, 59.  Fussy cut out the cup and using a stitch die cut make a  small square.  Stamped the steam on the square and pop up the coffee cup under the steam.  Stamp the sentiment in black and glue next to the cup as shown below
I hope you enjoyed this little project!  And please make sure to stop by my blog and say hi!!
