Starbucks Sentiments

I just can't help myself- I have to share this project before we leave for Seattle in the morning!

When I went to Starbucks to get my Peppermint Mocha this morning, I kept admiring how festive everything was starting to look for the holiday season. Even the cups and sleeves were decked out! When I noticed the sleeve, I thought to myself, hmm... "this would make a great sentiment on a card!"

I am sure this could be done up a little nicer, but I was in a bit of a hurry making it since I am in the midst of packing for our trip. I had to try it right away!

  • I started with an A2 size Kraft card base.
  • The swirl, from Season of Joy, was inked up in Close to Cocoa and stamped in a repeating pattern.
  • The bottom edge was given a pierced border using the paper piercing tool and mat pack.
  • I trimmed down the coffee sleeve to about 1 1/2"x 3". It was matted using Chocolate Chip and Real Red.
  • The bottom of the Real Red was given a scallop border.
  • Real Red polka dot stitched grosgrain was added to the top.
  • A Chocolate Chip corduroy button was the finishing touch. TIP: I used Real Red card stock for thread.
Okay, now I am really done blogging for a few days!

I hope you have a nice time in Seattle. I love that you used the sleeve! I have used tags from clothes before to create cards. Sometimes they are just too cute!
