Amy started something called the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop because... well.... she may have a slightly unhealthy obsession with coffee. (Sorry Amy, I have to call 'em like I see 'em!) Luckily for my creative spirit - SO DO I!
This Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is holiday themed. My projects aren't the standard green and red, but they are going to be a holiday gift set for my very dear friend and fellow coffee addict, so I think that counts. My friend is obsessed with all things pink, so that's what I stuck with!
All of the images come from ONE great stamp set - Fiskars Latte Love
Here's the full card set:

Side note, the lace on the card above came all the way from Australia!
A big thanks to the fantastic Lizzy Hill!
I tried to cover all the great winter beverages, so I included cocoa too!
A holiday gift set just wouldn't be complete without a special box so I decided to handmake one to match my set. I cut a piece of kraft cardstock to 8 1/2 x 7 and scored it 1'' on all sides. Then I cut the inside corner score.
I glued the corner to the inside fold in order to make a box and then clipped the corners while I made my box top. The top is made in the same exact way, just 1/8 of an inch wider, to fit snugly. The finished box measured 5 inches wide by 6 1/2 inches long by 1 inch high.
As you can see, I also made a set of matching envelopes to go with my cards. I used washi tape and dotted all over with gel markers.
I hope you liked my project! Thank you so much for stopping by. Make sure to leave a comment so I can visit you, too!
