Center Step Gift Card Holder with Coffee Cafe

Hello and Happy Tuesday! I hope you are all off to an amazing week. I know I am. I recently received my holiday pre-order and OH EM GEE! You need to be sure to head over to my FB page and check out my haul video I did live! Wow...just wow! Once again, Stampin' Up! knocked it out of the park! I will start sharing some sneak peeks over the next week or so here, but today, I want to share this fun Center Step Gift Card Holder with you! I just love how this turned out. I got my inspiration from Mary Lee at Splitcoast Stampers.
To create this card, you will need a half sheet of Soft Suede cardstock 8.5" x 5.5"and your Stampin' Trimmer. Place the 5.5" edge up against the top of the trimmer and line the right edge upto the 1" mark to the right of the trimmer blade, cut from the 1" mark on the trimmer arm to the 5.25" mark. Flip the cardstock and do the same thing on the opposite side.  Now, turn the cardstock with the 8.5" edge to the top of the trimmer and score at 1"; 2" and 5.25" on the outside of each of the cut lines you made above. Then score between the cut lines at 4.25". Once you have all of your cut and fold lines done, fold the center into a mountain fold as well as the top of the "armatures" then the bottom of the "armatures" into a valley and the final score line will be a mountain fold.
Next, cut a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock 3.25" x 3" and layer a piece of the Natures Poem DSP cut 3" x 2.75"and adhere to the card front. Then, stamp the coffee cup onto a scrap piece of Crumb Cake with Crumb Cake ink, stamp the label, sentiment and lid in Soft Suede and cut all pieces with the coordinating dies and adhere to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals, taking care not to adhere the cup to the "armature" preventing the card from opening. Next, cut a piece of Whisper White 5.25" x 4" and with the 4" edge to the top of the trimmer, score at 1" . Fold up and add adhesive to each end to seal creating a pocket for a gift card. Stamp the coffee beans in a random pattern along the "pocket" and adhere the panel inside the card. And that my friends, completes our project today. I hope you enjoyed today's card. If you have any questions, please let me know as I would love to answer them for you.
