Yesterday I shared a card created with a stack of die cut coffee cups HERE and I thought that little bags, which are perfectly sized for a Starbucks Gift Card, would be super cute decorated with die cut coffee cups! The Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag is great for tucking a gift card into!
I cut two of the Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag die and before assembling stamped the steam for the coffee from the What's Brewing Stamp Set using Unicorn White Ink. Then I stamped a greeting from the stamp set using Versamark Ink and heat embossed each word using a different color of embossing powder to match the stripes on the die cut coffee cup.
I die cut one Coffee Cup Craft Die from the stripe paper and two from the Dark Chocolate Cardstock. I glued them one on top of the other with the patterned paper on top to give the coffee cup a bit more substance. Then I replaced the heart in the center (also with three layers).
For step-by-step instructions on how to put these goodie bags together check out the video below or watch on YouTube HERE.
I mentioned in yesterday's post HERE that I found a use for the extra die cut coffee cups from that card, and this sweet little trio of thank you notes used up all the rest of those coffee cup dies (plus maybe a few extras because you can never have enough fun, bright coffee cups).
I used one of the larger bolder patterns as the background for the cards, stacked the coffee cups on a piece of cream cardstock die cut with the MFT Pierced Rectangle Stax largest die and matted the pierced piece on a rectangel die cut with the MFT Rectangle Stax largest die cut from one of the cardstocks in the kit.
I popped up the matted piece with some foam adhesive to give it a bit of dimension from the bold background.
I split up the long horizontal sentiment by stamping part of it above the stack of coffee cups and part below.
I finished the cards with another scattering of the sequins included in the kit. I love sequins!
