Hi there! Today I want to share a new stamp by Heidi Grace Kress for Purple Onion Designs, called Cups of Joy. As soon as I saw it, I knew that I wanted to make a gift card holder.
I stamped the image on some watercolor paper and colored it with Copics. The sentiment is from the Handwritten Holiday set. I adjusted the measurements to fit a gift card and attached a small piece inside to hold the card.
To give some subtle texture to the card, I stamped Hero Arts' Envelope Pattern over the image. I rounded the corners and ink distressed with Antique Linen distress ink. Some faux stitching and a bit of twine finished it off.
This was so much fun and so simple to make. I may be commissioned by my daughter (again!) to make some for her friends who are avid Starbuck's fans.
