Love You a Latte, My Mind's Eye!

  Hi, this is June Houck with your Thursday ShopPumpkinSpice inspiration.  

  I created this card from My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found Christmas" collection.  I embossed the damask paper with my D'Vine Swirls embossing folder, then lightly sanded to make the swirls "pop."  I popped up the heart and added red Stickles around the border to mimic the red glitter striped MME paper behind it.  I then added glossy accents to "cafe" for added dimension.  Finally I added the Maraschino twine.  I placed the gift card on the shape, then cut thin strips of foam tape around it to form a pocket.  I adhered my top...voila :)

  My twin daughters' fourth grade teacher loves Starbucks coffee, so I wanted to create a special gift card holder for her.

Cricut cartridge:  Cricut Lite "Love You a Latte" cut @ 7 1/4"
paper:  My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found ChristmasBoughs paperTinsel paperHolly paper, and Trees paper
embossing folder:  Cuttlebug "D'Vine Swirls"
twine:  The Twinery "Maraschino"
Other: red stickles and glossy accents

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you are enjoying time with your families.
