I cannot seem to stop playing with the Coffee Cafe Suite.  And as I have said previously, I do not drink coffee!  This suite of products is just so irresistible .

This card is a side fold with a pocket for a gift card.  The base is 4 1/4 X 11 and scored and folded at 5 1/2.  I then folded the top flap in half.  (You can see from the photo at the bottom where the top of the blue is thicker) I cut off the folded end at 1 1/2 which leaves approximately half of the folded under section to slide a gift card into.  I secured the flap with Tear and Tape on each side of the flap and close to the edges.  This leaves ample room for the gift card without it being too tight a fit.

Once the gift card section is complete, the top layer is simple.  Just be careful when you tape the top flap down to only tape the left section!!  I have made that mistake myself on several occasions. 🙂

I kept the stamping pretty simple and just added the Soft Sky heart for an accent.  The glitter enamel dot is to tie in the Pear Pizzaz.  The coffee beans are stamped full strength once on each side and then again without re-inking on each side.

My color combination is from the beautiful Coffee Break Designer Series Paper.  I know i am repeating myself, but Stampin’ Up! has the BEST designer series paper!!

Thank you so much for stopping in today!  I hope you enjoyed this card.  I may not have explained myself very well on the making of the gift card flap.  If you have any questions, please contact me.
