Coffee Cafe with gift card holder!

I love to start the day with a steaming mug of frothy coffee.  We have one of those machines where you add a capsule, press a button and the coffee is made and then delivered by a famous actor...all true except for the bit about the delivery!

I'm also quite partial to chatting with a friend whilst having a coffee and a biscuit or piece of cake.  Especially good when the weather is gloomy, as it is today.  I'm equally happy enjoying my coffee at home or in a coffee shop!  The Coffee Cafe bundle is perfect for a calorie free injection of caffine.  You can even share a coffee with a friend via the post by sending a gift card!

My card can be used as an invitation, with plenty of space underneath the flap to write a message, to invite a friend for a coffee with a pocket perfectly sized for a gift card.  So, even if you can't share a coffee by sitting together in person, you can sent the funds to share one by post.

The colours I have used with Whisper White are Early Espresso and Soft Sky, which are colours used in the coordinating Designer Series Paper (DSP), Coffee Break.  The stamps include a trio of coffee beans that I've used to create the border, and the sentiment just nestles inside.  One of life's simple pleasures.  I've used two of the more muted papers to create the cover and the coffee cups because I wanted the words to stand out and be bold.  The coffee cups and the collars are easily cut out using the Coffee Cups framelit dies.   The pocket on the inside is made from DSP and matches the cover.  All neat and complimentary!

One of the dies actually embosses as well - smooth cardstock goes in to the Big Shot, and out comes a collar with a corrugated texture.  (Another die even cuts out a cute little coffee cup from the DSP.  How cool is that?)

So who will you invite to share a coffee with you?
