My Final Post for The Cutting Cafe

Hi Stampers!

Today is my last day for being on the Design team for The Cutting Cafe. This week, being the last week of the term, we could choose any set that we wished to use. I decided to use one of Regina's newest coffee files called Coffee Cup 2. I am a coffee fiend and love all things coffee so I was excited when this came out :)

I also decided to try a new style card that I have never done before called a Diagonal Double Pocket Card. I just followed the tutorial on splitcoaststampers.

Here is a look at the front of the card...

For the Front of the card I used the coffee cup "Tops" from the Coffee Cup 2 File. I decorated the inside layer with my most treasured coffee background stamp :) I don't even know who makes it because it is not marked - but I love it! The little coffee cup is from the Flourishes set called Coffee With Friends. My flower is a prima.

This has two diagonal pockets that you can use to place tags in. Here you see my inserts coming out...

And here is a look at each of my tags that I made...

This is one of my favorite Greeting Farm stamps called Latte Anya. I decided to try coloring her on Kraft which I have also never done before! I don't think it turned out too bad for my first time. I was inspired for the colors by a card that I had seen created by Jen who does the Deconstructing Jen sketches.

Here is a look at the second insert which actually holds a gift card...

The Coffee 2 set comes with this little pocket you can create to hold a gift card! Love that!! All of the sentiments I used are from Stampin Up.

Here is a final look at the whole thing together...

I love how this turned out and it makes such a super cute way to give someone a gift card for the best thing on Earth...COFFEE :)

I want to take a moment and thank Regina for choosing me to serve on her amazing Design Team. It has been such an honor and privilege to design for such a sweet and talented lady. These 6 months have been so much fun and really flew by! And even though this is my last Design team project - it won't be the last time you see me use items from The Cutting Cafe :)

Be sure to visit The Cutting Cafe Blog and see what the rest of the team did! It will be an awesome post because it is so fun to see the files that everyone chooses to use on the free weeks :)

Have a wonderful day all!
