You Got This! Love, Coffee Cards

Having the Joy Clair’s Coffee Love stamp set, I couldn’t resist from making something for the love for coffee. I decided to create handmade pockets that hold the gift cards with a natural kraft paper look that you often see as the color of coffee bags or elements in coffee shops. This is a perfect card design for the coffee lover in your life.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour


Step 1

Stamp the coffee cup image with VersaFine Clair in Rain Forest, cover with Imagine’s Embossing Powder in Clear and heat set.

Step 2

Lightly color the stamped image with VersaColor in Pinecone and Black ink pads using a BrushStix and stamp a coffee bean with the VersaFine Clair Pinecone ink pad.

Step 3

Cut along the stamped coffee cup.

Step 4

Stamp coffee mug using the VersaFine Clair Tulip red instead, shade with VersaColor and fussy cut the shape.

Step 5

On a piece of kraft cardstock 3 ½ x 8 inch, scored in half long side, stamp the circle design with VersaMark, cover with Imagine’s Embossing Powder in White and heat set.

Step 6

Mark ½ in from both short sides, cut straight from one to about 1-inch from the scored point and follow the stamped design removing the kraft paper.

Step 7

Turn the kraft card around and place Tear It! Tape on the sides. Fold and glue. The pocket is ready. Repeat with the second one.

Step 8

Distress edges of the kraft paper pockets with VersaColor White.

Step 9

Stamp sentiments from Joy Clair Coffee Love stamp set on white and kraft card stocks with VersaFine Clair in Nocturne.

Step 10

Cut curvy shapes along the white paper. Cut straight the kraft paper and distress with VersaColor White.

Step 11

Glue the coffee mug and cup. Then glue the kraft stamped “Enjoy”sentiment and end with the white cardstock “You Got This” sentiment.

Step 12

Add coffee beans by stamping with the VersaFine Clair in Pinecone.
