Perk Up with a Coffee Slider Card

I saw a tutorial for a slider card last year right after I got my baby bug, but I never got around to making one.  Instead of using cocoa packets, I used one of those little coffee packets that you can find at the grocery store.  I think coffee would be perfect for a friend that maybe needs to "perk up," but they would also make cute teacher gifts...maybe combined with a Starbucks gift card!

Materials Used:
  • Click HERE to see the tutorial from Custom Crops and The Pink Stamper
  • Patterned Paper - DCWV Sweet Stack & Bo Bunny Double Dot in Coffee Bean (appropriate!)
  • "Cup and Saucer" cut at 2" from Smiley Cards
    • attached with pop dots
  • Hole Punch
  • 3/8" Grosgrain Ribbon
  • Sentiment from Scrappy Moms "A Pinch & A Dash" set
  • EK Success Border Punch - Dotted Scallop
  • Sakura Micron 03 Pen - Black
  • 1/4" Terrifically Tacky Tape (or "Red Tape")

ginger - smiley cards is exclusive to the gypsy, but Provo Craft extended the offer and if you buy and/or register a gypsy before Dec. 31st, you are eligible to receive 5 free cartridges. (Blackletter, Christmas, Indie Art, Smiley Cards and Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.) Hope that helps!

Hi, i got mine at christmas (registered it on like Dec. 27th) and it did not come with the smiley cards cart... :( hopefully they might re-release it eventually, even to buy because i would definitely pay for it!
