Coffee Lovers LOVE Gift Cards featuring SRM Stickers

Today I'm sharing a card inspired by the Summer Coffee Lover's Bloghop.  My card is also on the SRM Blog- they are one of the Super Sponsors this time around and have been giving away some awesome goodies!  Be sure to pop over to the SRM Blog and leave a comment for your chance to win!


I am always inspired when I see the cute gift cards at stores- especially Starbucks!  Why put them inside the card when you can use them on the front?  They make the perfect focal point:


I layered some gold polka-dot vellum onto a kraft card base and then lightly adhered the gift card over the center.  I added a striped strip of patterned paper just below the edge and then had fun with some Black Sticker Stitches!  I added them underneath the gift card but in places it is clear so you can see through it below.
I added the sentiment sticker from the Sentiments/Congratulations Sheet.  Then I embellished with a few sequins and some Solid Pink Sorbet Baker's Twine.


What coffee lover wouldn't love a card like this? :)  It comes with free coffee!  lol!  Have fun popping through all of the other awesome cards along the hop and thanks for stopping by here, too!
