Day 3 of 13 Spooky Halloween Projects - Merry Café Halloween Witches Brew Card

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    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.
