2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

I was so happy to stop by Starbucks yesterday to see their 2017 pastry bags ... why?  Because it makes the cutest card!  and the 2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop is just the place for it!

Cue the Whitney...


A good schmear of glue stick on a lightweight cardstock, stick the front of the bag on, and run it through your machine in an embossing folder ... trim after it dries.  Adhere to a 5x7" kraft card base and, Bob's your Uncle! 

I added a die-cut 'you' and one of the many darling cups from Altenew's Coffee Love, a little steamy heart from E.H. Home & Hearth, just to complete the 'song.'  I even chose to leave the little pinked edge... it's all matchy-matchy with the glassine envelope I created.

Thanks, amy T., for a little after-Christmas-card play time!

So pretty!
I have saved 2 bags and was planning
to make a similar card from them. It’s
nice to see how you upcycled yours.

Only 'you' would think to upcycle a pastry bag, Michele...so clever! I love red and white with Kraft, too, especially with those darling Christmas doves and snowflakes! My fave is how you embossed the hearts to add structure and dimension to this card...You nailed it, my friend!
