First I'm sharing a great Shaker Card made with real coffee grounds. I gotta say the room smelled wonderful while I was making this - and yes - I am a coffee addict. These were the cards we also made in my July techniques clubs.
The inside of the coffee cup is cut out with the coffee cup framelits, and I added a window sheet, the cup lid and amazing coffee grounds inside the shaker -
The front portion of this card acts also as a pocket to hold a gift card for the recipient - just pull on the tab at the top to reveal it -
Here is a picture of the inside of the card -
Then - since I am such an addict - I made myself this amazing notebook set to carry in my purse using the SU stamp case and the Coffee Break designer series paper. The sentiment is taken from the new Ribbon of Courage set.
I punched out the starburst and fussy cut the pot and cup to make a cute little cover image. But inside is where the magic happens -
It features the reverse side of the same sheet of designer series paper, another verse from the Ribbon of Courage set - a pocket for coupons, etc - a pen and a post-it note tablet. The best thing is because this is all contained in the stamp case - you can throw it in your purse and it does not get ruined. I really, really LOVE it and hope you do too.
