New Design Team!

Hi everyone.  It sure has been a while since I last posted.  There is a reason for that...I have been away on a transatlantic cruise and I am trying to catch up!  When I got back, I found out that I made it on a new design team.  The site is The Cutting Cafe.  They do wonderful things there!  They offer a lot of digi stamp and SVG cut files that can be downloaded.  Since this is my first project with them, I was a little uncertain, how to begin.  I have never done any work with cut files in years.  I have a new Silouhette Portrait in the box, waiting to be opened and "learned", so...I had to cut the files out by hand!
Hopefully, by the time I do the next one, I will be able to use my wonderful new machine!             

         Coffee Cup Gift Card Holder                 

I sponged the edges and the lid.  I used Momento ink to color the wrapper and the heart.  I pop dotted the digi striped circle and heart (sentiment) circles, after cutting them with Nestabilities.  The tag was also from the set.  I decided to punch and color the palm trees to add a little more interest.  I am giving this to my husband, Jack, with a Starbucks gift card, (in the holder, inside) for his birthday in June.
Shhh, don't tell him!

The files that I used to make this card are:
