Hello Friends and Happy March 1st! I am on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Blog today sharing two gift card holders perfect for St. Patrick's Day...or just change the paper and they are perfect for anytime you need a little gift!!
I started by using the Coffee Card Gift Holder Honey Cuts Dies. I am telling you right now...you need this die set!! If you ever give a gift card to your favorite coffee shop then this die is for you. I started by die cutting the main cup from green cardstock. I then cut the top piece again with paper from the Doodlebug Design: Lots O' Luck Paper Pad. I trimmed the bottom (overhang) off and attached it to my green cardstock base. If you use a full size sheet of paper you can skip this set...I wanted the pattern and I only had it in 6 x 6.
Here is what that looks like:
Next, I began working on my stamped images. I used the Pretty Pink Posh: Best Of Luck Stamp Set to stamp my leprechauns. I colored them with a variety of Copic Markers and used the Pretty Pink Posh: Best of Luck Dies to cut them out.
To hold the die closed (you don't need adhesive...this is why I love this die) I die cut the band that goes around the cup (the band holds everything in place). I then heat embossed my sentiment with gold embossing powder and attached my stamped image with Lawn Fawn: glue to the top of the band.
