When Life Happens, Coffee Always Helps – by Deb Felts

Good Thursday morning. We’ve missed a few days of posting here, but life happens and coffee always DOES help! It’s good to be back on track, for sure.

Deb has a fabulous gift card holder today that she created with an easel card format, done in a masculine/vintage style. I love it!  Take a look:

This is the card front when fully closed.

The paper is so perfect for this card – it’s a NEW pad called Workshop by Kaisercraft.

Loving those beautifully scripted sentiments and note the small tags Deb stamped – even the one that looks like a ticket – how fun! Deb did a fabulous job melding her stamped sentiments with the paper.

And here’s the card opened, clearly showing the easel style, which includes another beautiful sentiment.

If you’ve never made an easel card, here’s a nice tutorial you can follow over at Splitcoaststampers.

I’m loving the wood dot embellishments on this project.

And this is looking from the back of the card, with the easel propped open. The coffee gift card will slide in under the burlap string.

Again, Deb used another beautiful sentiment plus a punch out from the back of the paper pad – we always love the Kaisercraft pads for all those lovely punch outs in every pad!

And note that Deb combined sentiments from our two different coffee sets on this project. Those sets were designed to work together and be totally interchangeable, and this project shows us how beautifully they do work together.

You can find Deb’s post on her blog here.
