Coffee's on Me!

It's that time of year again when I make a lot of gift tags.  Usually they are just Christmas ones, but I have this gorgeous 'Coffee Sprite' from Aurora Wings and an idea popped into my head.... a gift tag with a pocket for a gift card. 

Products used:

  • Kraft card
  • Tag dies
  • X-Cut nesting die - Square Parenthesis
  • Twine
  • Stampendous Fran-táge - Aged Ivory
  • Fiskars clear stamps - Latte Love
  • Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain
  • ProMarkers - Burnt Sienna, Caramel, Sandstone, Pastel Beige, Cinnamon, Tan, Walnut, Cocoa, Raw Sienna Magenta, Carmine, Cerise, Cool Grey 1 & 2, China Blue, Cobalt & Blue Pearl

First I stamped all over with the coffee bean stamp and embossed with the Fran-táge

I am entering my tag into the following challenges:
  1. Stamps by Aurora Wings (FB) - November Anything Goes
  2. Deep Ocean - #167 Inspired by a Song/Movie (Blur, 'Coffee & TV')
