Hi everyone! Looking ahead to Mother’s Day (May 11th), this year I want to send my mom and mother-in-law a coffee gift card, but I also want to write a long note inside. The usual small-ish gift card holder won’t do, so I decided to combine the gift card holder idea with a standard size card. I love the Perfect Blend set for this purpose, and the coffee splatter from Gorgeous Grunge fits right in. The beauty of this card is that you can tailor it to any occasion, person, or color scheme. Start with the patterned paper you want to use and pull your card stock and ink colors from that. Here, I found a polka dot paper I liked from the recent Sale-a-bration paper pack Sweet Sorbet. From there, I picked up the Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Crumb Cake colors. I will be putting this in the mail, but if I were hand delivering, I would probably add some ribbon or buttons too. To secure the gift card well, put a glue dot behind.
Happy Easter, everyone!
