There are a lot of layers here due to the fact that I kept changing my mind. I think when I make it again there will be some changes to the layers but for now it is done and I love it. Doesn't the coffee lid look real? A few layers of Ultra Thick Embossing Powder worked wonders here.
Because it is considered a "gift card" holder and I shot the instructions out the window, I went ahead and put a little envelope pouch on the inside of the card. This will hold the gift card.
I haven't decided if I will make this a part of a card class or not. My inspiration seems to be bursting out the sides and my hands can't keep up with the brain so I dare say that other 'versions' of this cup will be born as well.
Have you used this stamp?

I almost forgot how fun it was playing with Alcohol Inks. I was truly inspired though when Sherry presented me with some very cool Tim Holtz Sizzix Dies for my birthday. I could so 'see' Alcohol Ink to separate the "land" parts from the "ocean" parts. Needless to say, as soon as I got home I put my theory to the test. This, my friends, would be the awesome result. How cool is that??
Once my card classes for this session are over, I will be sure to post the pictures and the DIY instructions so that YOU can try this very cool idea. Until then...happy crafting!
