Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Suite Spotlight - August 2020

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you this month - all spotlighting product suites!


My choice of suites was the Heartwarming Hugs Suite from pages 8-10 of the August-December 2020 Mini catalog. Any of you who know me in any capacity - know that for me - it is all about the coffee!! So this suite was perfect for me.

My choice was to make an adorable gift card holder/card that will be perfect for gift giving during the holiday season.  I started with a piece of Mossy Meadow 11" x 4 1/4" and scored at 2 1/2" and 5 1/2".  

I then added a piece of DSP from the Heartwarming Hugs assortment to the flap that is folded back to hold the gift card and to the right side of the base of the card.  After punching a finger hold for getting the gift card out, I used extra sticky tear and tap to hold the flap down on the edges.  The inside layer with the sentiment is Crumb Cake.  Here's a close up of the gift card holder section of the card.

I love this design, as it serves a dual purpose of a card and a gift card holder - and still fits in a standard A2 size envelope.  I used the Warm Hugs stamp set and Warm Wraps dies to add these cut little elements to the front of the card; and to decorate the envelope.

Final touches were a couple of the red gems and a triple linen thread bow.  Hope this inspires you to make a few of these of your own to share a cup of coffee with those you love during the holidays. 


I hope you enjoyed my post and would love it if you'd leave me a comment. Now click on through to the rest of those hopping this month to see all of their wonderful creations! ~Maureen
