CottageCutz Coffee Thank You

Thank you-just two very small words that can make someone's day.  A show of appreciation for a kindness bestowed upon us.  That is what this sweet card is all about.  It was created to thank someone who helped me collect on some past due invoices at work.   She hasn't received it yet as she is on vacation-but I think she will love it don't you.  As I told you in my last post, I am so into burlap and neutral colors right now.  I thought it would be perfect for my "Coffee" theme.
All these cute little dies from CottageCutz helped me to make this super sweet card.  I used Mr. Snuggles, Hot Drink Cup, Cup of Latte, Thank You, and Bella Leafy Branch.  On the inside of the card I had decorated with coffee sleeve from Starbucks.  Inside the coffee sleeve I inserted a gift card.  It makes for a super cute thank you.  One I know she is going to love.
When giving a gift card try to "think outside the box".  Use something from the store you purchased it at to add to your creations.  It makes them so fun to give and a whole bunch of fun to make.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Wishing you a Happy Easter and Happy Crafting.  Here are the dies I used:

Shall we call you "burlap carol" for now? LOL If anyone can beautify burlap, it would be you, ma'am. BEAUTIFUL card with all the die cuts (even the round burlap!) and wonderfully rolled flowers. Love all those rich coffee/chocolate colors mixed with the white and black - very striking - and the stitching is so STRAIGHT! very pretty, Carol - I love your card (inside and out!) hugs, de

Bears and coffee...eep! So cute! I like the fairly monochromatic look to this, too.

You've been in my thoughts, and hope you're doing well, Carol. I pray for you and your mom. :)

P.S. Belated Happy Easter!
