Coffee Swing Gift Card Holder

It's Inspiration Wednesday with My Creative Time!  The colors on my card today were inspired by the Starbucks gift card that is tucked away inside!

I wanted to use my favorite coffee cup die from My Creative Time's Coffee Break stamp and die set, but it didn't fit using the MCT Surprise Pop-Out Card Die in the traditional horizontal way, so I tried using it vertically.   It worked out just fine!  I cut the card base with the Pop-Out Die with rustic cream cardstock and stamped the top portion with a stamp from MCT's Coffee Background Stamp Set.

I then covered the inside rectangle with a piece of polka-dotted paper from the Simple Stories SN@P Color Vibe collection and added some leaves cut with the new MCT Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies.  I  die-cut the coffee cup out of kraft cardstock and stamped the coordinating stamp.  I then stamped the cup also on cream cardstock and green patterned paper so that I could paper piece the cup together.  I added a kraft coffee sleeve stamped with the cutest little caution stamp from the Coffee Break set!

The sentiment is from MCT's More Gift Card Sentiments, and I stamped a few coffee beans from You Are Perk-fect!

Here's a look at the inside.  When that center panel swings around, it reveals the other side, which has a pocket made with the MCT Tag Gift Pocket Die, holding the gift card!
