Hi Stampers.  Have you seen the new sleeves at Starbucks?  When I first saw them, I fell in LOVE and knew they HAD to go on a card!!  They say “Crafted by hand a heart”.  That’s perfect for their handcrafted coffees and my handcrafted cards.  The stamp sets I used are from my personal collection of retired and exclusive stamps, but if you wish to recreate it, you could use other stamps.

The card starts with a Crumb Cake card base (8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″).  Next is a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Cherry Cobbler that I used the stars textured embossing folder on.  I then trimmed down the coffee cup sleeve and adhered it to the card with fast fuse adhesive.  (I chose fast fuse adhesive because the back of the sleeve is corrugated and I wanted a stronger  hold to be sure it wouldn’t fall off).  Next I stamped the “You’re a Star” from the Best Decision Ever stamp set (it is an exclusive set for Stampin’ Up! demos) in Cherry Cobbler ink onto a scrap of Crumb Cake card stock and cut it out with one of the circle framelits from the Stitched Shapes framelit set.

I lined the inside of the card with a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla card stock.  I stamped the “congratulations” and “you did it” from the Stampin’ Up! Bravo stamp set (retired) in Cherry Cobbler ink. The girl in the lower left and the stamping supplies in the lower right are from the Stampin’ Up! Totally Tess stamp set (retired) and stamped in Memento Black ink.

I sent this card to my friend Brooke, who signed up as a Stampin’ Up! hobby demo over the summer and just promoted to Bronze Elite level and went from earning 20% to 25% .  Congratulations, Brooke!!
