Coffee Lovers Blog Hop # 5

One of the earliest stamps that I ever bought was a coffee cup gift card holder from Art Impressions.  Gift cards were just becoming an alternative for the hard to buy for crowd.

I always enjoy pulling out an old stamp set and giving it a new treatment or technique.

In this case, I embossed a background with a coffee bean embossing folder from Sizzix  and  then gave it a light sponging treatment.  I put a coating of white embellisher on the lid to give it dimension and make it shine a bit.  I added a couple of star shaped paper clips to hold the lid of the card down and to keep the gift card in place.
