Happy fall everyone! Leanne here today. I don’t think I’m alone in saying, Autumn is my favorite season. I love the colors of the changing leaves, and the crisp cool air, and most importantly all things pumpkin …especially pumpkin spice coffee!
This is what inspired my project for today – a coffee shaped card that doubles as a gift card holder with a pumpkin theme.
To decorate the plaid sleeve, I added a tiny pumpkin and leaves. Using the Itty Bitty Pumpkins and Itty Bitty Leaves Honey Cuts, I die cut the pieces from colored card stock. I then used Copic Markers in coordinating colors to add some shading.
To finish off the outside of card, I added the Treat Yo Self sentiment and tied some orange baker’s twine around the card front.
When you slide off the cup sleeve and open the card, a surprise is revealed… a pocket with a coffee shop gift card and cute image of a pumpkin spice latte.
The pocket is super easy to make. I simply die cut an extra coffee cup shape and trimmed the top off. I added the scalloped border (die cut with this slimline Honey Cuts). I then adhered the pocket piece to the card back with liquid glue being careful to only apply the glue on the outer edges.
Copic colors used: green – BG90, BG93, BG96; orange – YG02, YG07, YG09; black – N6, N8; whipped cream shading – YR30
