Day 3 a coffee cup card with a single coffee cup.
This card uses the new Very Vanilla notecards (they come 20 to a pack, cut and scored with envelopes).
Cut your designer paper about 3 x 4 ½ and your copper foil about 2 ¾ x 4 ¼; layer these up – I liked them offset.
Stamp the large coffee cup and lid and cut out with the matching dies. I used Early Espresso for both.
Stamp the Witches Brew on Pumpkin Pie and die cut a coffee sleeve, I like the die with the ridges. I love the Coffee Café set in the annual catalog and this matching holiday set is so fun.
Adhere some copper ribbon to the lid along with a heart or teabag or a bow. I used a lot of mini dimensions to make it pop.
Now attach the coffee cut and lid with dimensions to the front of your card. And then add a hat (I cut this from the Spooky Cat Designer Paper) and a copper bow as well.
Stamp a greeting inside the card.
If you want you can create a gift card holder by cutting a piece of cardstock 3 ¼ x 4, punching out a semi circle (with an oval or circle punch), and attaching it inside the card with tear tape.
I know you all loved the mini coffee cups when we boxed them into 2 cup packages. These cups come from WebRestaurantStore.com Sadly they only sell massive quantities, so if you are local and want to make one, just let me know and I’ll give you a mini coffee cup. The straw is from the dollar store (one straw cut in half). Size is tricky to see bu these are about 4" tall.
Here’s a idea for a single cup - and you'll see I did this in 2 sizes, the taller one that can hold a gift card and the shorter one that is also a bit wider (so it can hold a larger label on the back). These measurements are for the taller one. The shorter one is 1/2" shorter and 1/2" wider.
The holder is 2 ½ x 11, score at 4 ½, 7, 7 ¾, 10 ¼. Burnish your folds. Decorate the front of the box with designer paper 5/8 x 2 3/8 (think about using a small pattern). Cut a piece of designer paper for behind the coffee cup or stamp a greeting and add to the front of the holder. Punch out a hole in the front part of the holder, 2" is perfect.
Stamp a Halloween label, punch it out and adhere to the back of the folder. Do you remember the copper foil for the card (frugal me, I cut out a label from it and here it is!). Cut the foil in half and adhere to the back for a fun look.
Decorate the coffee cup using a template from a cup you cut up.
Make a band from the same template but 1 ½ wide.
Stamp the witches brew image and cut out with your circle dies or stitched shape or 1 1/4 punch. Add this to the band (coffee sleeve) on the front of the cup with dimensionals.
Cut out a circle 1 3/8 for the top of the cup out of designer paper. With 2 step stamping stamp on the "brew"
Add some candy to the cup and it’s so cute!!!
If you want to add a gift card to go behind the coffee cup, attach the card with a glue dot and make a band about 6 ½ x ¾ and wrap it around the gift card. Put the join at the back and cover the join with your Halloween label.
