A Treat for You

Happy Friday everyone! I'm back to sneak in one more card for the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, and it's one that would work for any time of year:


Are you loving it? Because I love it. And now for the part that will have me committed; I stamped the plaid background myself. Yup, created it with my own two, inky hands. It's one of the background builder sets from Papertrey Ink and each color is a different stamp from the set. I had so much fun creating it!


The little glassine bag in the middle there? Yup, made that, too; it's a die from Memory Box and is sooooo easy! Since you really don't see it when filled and decorated, I just glued the bag together with some Tombow Mono Adhesive and then used my tape gun to stick it to the plaid paper. A little stamping and paper-piecing got me the coffee cup from Lawn Fawn and the heat embossed sentiment on the tag I cut. The little bow die from Mama Elephant made the perfect topper to my treat!

Oh I did say the bag was filled, didn't I?


It's a gift card holder. Yeah, that's totally why I bought it. The perfect way to give someone a pretty card and a sweet treat. Coffee anyone? ;)
