Press On - A Cup of Thanks

 Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a good start. Today is a simply STUNNING day, here in Southern Ontario. Bright sunshine, coolish temps...such a welcome break from the oppressive heat and humidity we've had this summer!

Today I am picking up where I left off on Saturday with the Press On stamp set from the August - December Mini Catalogue and a fun gift card holder idea for the coffee lover in your life. Check it out...

In designing this project, I started with a basic Joy-Fold Card and turned it to a portrait orientation. Instead of cutting my 4-1/14" x 11" card base down, I added an extra score line at the 8-1/2" mark to create a pocket to hold a gift card. So simple! Once I had the foundation for my gift card holder, I had some fun with the Plaid Tidings DSP...how I LOVE that paper pack! There truly is a plaid for every occasion in there! Drawing from the colours in the plaid pattern I chose, I used a palette of Seaside Spray, Melon Mambo and Whisper White. I stamped the cup, coloured it with Seaside Spray Blends and then fussy-cut it out. I paper-pieced a plaid wrapper and added some Misty Moonlight baker's twine and a sweet little heart from the Playful Pets Trinkets.

To add a little interest to my gift card pocket, I used the new Celebration Labels dies to create a decorative edge, adhering the DSP before die-cutting, so I got a nice, clean finish. I added a Stitched Rectangle label with a sentiment and a fussy cut and coloured coffee cup. 
On the inside panel, I stamped some more coffee cups and coloured the heart with my Light Melon Mambo Blends.

I'll be demonstrating this project, along with two others using the Press On stamp set in today's Tuesday Live @ Five video over on my Facebook page. If you aren't on Facebook or miss the live broadcast, you can catch the replay over on my YouTube Channel shortly afterwards.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a fantastic week!
