Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Sending Hugs Gift Card Holder

I’m over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today with this super fun gift card holder featuring a Honey Bee Stamps dies and two awesome Trinity Stamps coffee themed stamp sets – Coffee with Character and A Latte Love.

I started by die cutting my shaped coffee cup gift card holder from heavy 110 lb. white cardstock and the sleeve from kraft cardstock. Then I took my Coffee with Character stamps and stamped them randomly all over the cup. I chose a limited, sepia-toned color palette from my copics and started coloring. Then I stamped my sentiment on the sleeve and colored the letters on that with the same colors. I added a little shading on the lid with the lightest marker for some dimension too.

Here’s a look at the cup and the sleeve separated. I think it will be so fun to write a little message inside of, add a Starbucks gift card to and send it out for a little extra love to someone unsuspecting. Happy mail is the best!

Have you sent out any happy mail lately? Have you received any?? Share in the comments. We could all use some inspiration and a happy story from time to time.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
