This is the birthday card I made for my brother. He spent his 50th birthday surfing in Hawaii! Life is rough for him!
With tax season in full swing, I thought he might need a few extra coffees to keep him up during those late nights. I decided to make him a gift card holder for a Starbucks gift card. I used the Love You A Latte Cricut Cartridge to cut out the coffee cup. Each layer is cut twice and sandwiched with foam tape.
I used Sizzix Originals Cupcake and Ice Cream Die, again, to make cupcake. I also cut it twice and sandwiched with foam tape. The candle is cut free hand and the flame is a leaf paper punch. I added Diamond Glaze to the flame and sprinkles. I made a little tag and stamped the sentiment using Papertrey Ink's Limitless Labels stamp set. The circles are cut using Nestabilities. I ran the belly band through the crimper.
I attached the front and the back of the card with a large brad. The card swings open to reveal the gift card.
