Good morning friends!  Aaah!  It sounds like a great morning for coffee doesn’t it?!  Well it sure does to me anyway!  Today, my post is all about coffee…so grab yourself a cup, sit back and enjoy!

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Nov2019

I’m so excited today to share my post with you because Digi Doodle Studios is a first time sponsor for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  Please be sure to check them out during the blog hop and CLICK HERE to stop on over at the Digi Doodle Studios blog and check out what’s happening there today as well!  There are lots of fun coffee themed products in the store and I’m thrilled to be sharing some with you today:


Isn’t she just adorable with coffee in hand?!  This image is called “Ginger” from Digi Doodle Studios and I’ve got her all colored up front and center of my Z-Fold Gift Card Holder. (CLICK HERE to see all of the “Caffinated Cuties” Collection!)

If you have ever made a Z-Fold card, then this is something with a little bit of extra added fun with a gift card holder pocket on the inside, plus you can see how the card nicely displays on the front which is perfect for popping into an envelope to mail out to your coffee loving friend!

The papers that I’ve used for this work perfectly with the theme today which are also from Digi Doodle Studios called Coffee Break Digi Papers.  (I love that I never have to worry about running out of my favorite pattern!!)  There are also several sentiments from Digi Doodle Studios used on my project called Coffee Anyone Sentiments.

*If you want to see a video with detailed instructions on how to make one of these Z-Fold Gift Card Holders along with a sharing of the full collection of the digital papers that I’ve used on my project, check out the video below or CLICK HERE to view it on You Tube:

This is such an easy and fun project to put together especially for the up-coming Holidays, but as you can see this is very neutral so that I could easily use it for most any time of the year.


Here’s a closer view of “Ginger” and how I’ve colored her up with Copic markers.  Of course if you know me, I had to add a bit of sparkle somewhere.  I took a glitter brush pen and added some sparkle to her pink bow, the heart on her coat and the lid and flower on her coffee cup.

I die cut her out with a stitched rectangle die and then layered a piece of brown cardstock die cut with a scallop rectangle die.  For the around the edges of the image panel as well as the other sentiments I printed out, I sponged some Tea Stain Distress Ink around the edges.  The sentiment were cut out with a stitched circle die and then layered with a piece of brown cardstock cut with a scallop circle die.

To keep the image panel in place, a foam dot was used at the bottom panel so that when you pull up on the flap it opens up:


And this is what is so fun, is that when you flip up the front panel, you see how it opens up with the fun coffee sentiments inside and the surprise gift card holder at the top!

I have an urge to go to Starbucks now! LOL!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my fun Coffee themed project today as well as the video tutorial on how to make one yourself!  I’d love to see yours if you make one!  If you have any questions about anything, please let me know!

Now to sip on some more coffee and join in on all of the coffee inspiration today!  Thanks so much for stopping in and I’ll see you again soon!

  8. What a cute little sassy image – all ready for her fun time at her favorite coffee shop. We don’t have a Starbucks locally but we have several little independent coffee places, my favorite being one inside my bank called the Wise Owl. Great card.


  9. Vicki, I love the image, adore your coloring, am drooling over the coffee (!), but mostly I really love this new style of Z-fold card which makes it look like an easel at the same time! Fabulous! I’m definitely going to make one of these.


  10. She is just precious and I love all the curl in her hair. I can’t say I have ever seen this fold before but it’s brilliant way to “hide” the gift card. Wonderful colors/papers and coloring.
