I really should be working on Christmas cards since between my husband and I we usually send out around 250 cards and I have a whopping 6 cards made. EEK!! I seemed to have jumped right over Christmas to Valentines Day. Every year for Valentines day, I do gift card holders for the university kids and add a Tim Hortons gift card (a popular Canadian Coffee Shop). I found this fabulous Impression Obsession - Latte Love D8679 stamp in my mailbox and was so inspired by it that I couldn't wait to ink it up. It screamed to be turned into a shaker card!!
This weeks Impression Obsession Challenge is...A GIFT FOR YOU, so this was perfect for it!
I used the sketch from Paper Players 119 Sketch Challenge.....
This stamp actually has steam and a heart rising from the coffee but I cut the heart off and used it for the label. I pleated some 1/4" grosgrain ribbon around the shaker pouch. I added real coffee beans inside the shaker. This was a great smelling card to make!
I love how thin these shakers are! It makes it so much easier for mailing! I used glue dots to pleat my ribbon. I have a tutorial in THIS POST for pleating ribbon.
This is the inside. I just adhere a small panel , adhering on just the 3 sides so I can slip a gift card in. I slid my driver's license in just to show how it fits in. I have to go and buy some gift cards!
