Perfectly Blended Christmas Card

It's Monday, and I am sharing one of the cards featured at my holiday card buffet - I call it A perfectly blended holiday gift card.  Gift cards holders are always popular in my neck of the woods with a Tim Horton's on every corner!! So this adorable coffee cup stamp is perfectly fitting!
I made a whole lot of these cards - over 20!

The 'Gorgeous Grunge' set is perfect for making the coffee spills and rings on the background layer. I stamped the bottom of one of my mugs to make the coffee cup rings using Soft Suede ink. To make your base card, cut a piece of 11" X 4 1/4", score at 5 1/2" and 2 3/4". Fold the 2 3/4" score line inward and punch a half circle to make the gift card easier to remove. Add some sticky strip to the outer edges to make your pocket. The coffee cups were stamped using Stazon, and sponged with Soft Suede, I coloured the lids in with Crumb Cake and made the cup sleeves with the 'Winter Frost' Designer series paper stacks.

I used the stamp sets 'Perfect Blend', 'Gorgeous Grunge' and 'Happy Hour' for the sentiment on the inside. Below is what the inside looks like.
