Coffee Gift Card Holder

This week I made a gift card holder to give a Starbucks GC to a friend.  I used Coffee Girl by Whimsy & Stars Studio and the Papertrey gift card die. 

 

2012-05-22 WSS Coffee WM

 

I love the big coffee cup she is holding.  The last few mornings I could have used a coffee cup that big.  The problem is that I don’t drink plain coffee.  I love Café Mocha’s.   I wonder how many Weight Watchers points a mocha that size would be?   I would probably have to live on my treadmill for the rest of the week… 

Did you notice her red hair?    I think I mentioned before that I seem to usually color hair blonde.    I decided to step outside my comfort zone and give a red head a try.    The one you see here is attempt number seven.  Good thing I finally got one that was acceptable because I was running out of crafting time.

Thank you to every one that has sent get well wishes to my dog, Summer.   She still isn’t fully recovered by she is doing much better.  She is still having issues with her balance but she is not falling all over the place any more.  

I hope you have a great week!  Thank you for stopping by!

What a great gift card holder and that wonderful coffee cup ( Lucky is at daycare and I am relaxing with a cup now :) ) Loving the red hair, I never try red hair, just blonde and brunette. Sweet.
Gina Lindsay said…
Oh my goodness, I love that image! I think I need a cup that size most mornings too. I think you did a great job on the red hair.
Lisa M said…
Cheryl, she's fabulous!!! You should seriously concider offering Starbucks your talent and let them sell these holders for them. This is perfect! I can't believe you have the patience to color her 7 times..LOL. But I have to admit, the highlights and lowlights of her hair DO look wonderful.
I too like to drink a little coffee with my creamer :D

Another beautiful creation here.
Hugs,
Lisa xx

Very attractive paper card holder but i think you should focus on designing plastic card holders as they are more reliable and attractive are very much in demand....

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
