Coffee gift card holder

Hi everyone.  Sharing a quick project I made to hold a Starbuck's gift card.  I used one of the newest digi stamps from Lisa's Doodley Doos, called Java Minute.

I sized the digi coffee cup so that it was large enough to hold the gift card in the back.  I printed it off five times (twice with the Christmas patterned paper (for both the front and back of the coffee cup; and three times in white (full image for the base and partial images for the lid (for the back) and an extra piece for the rim of the lid to add depth (it's popped up on dimensionals).  Then I just cut out the various pieces and layered them.  I printed off the sentiment on my computer onto Crumb Cake cardstock and cut the strip to 1 1/2" wide.  I folded it around the cup, securing it at the back (and adding a little ledge at the bottom of the back to hold the gift card in place so it wouldn't slip through).  Then I just decorated it with some twine, jingle bells and holly.

Stamps:  Java Minute (Lisa's Doodley Doos - Clear Dollar Stamps); sentiment is computer generated
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); Be of Good Cheer DP, Crumb Cake, Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler (SU!)
Ink:  Gumball Green
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Holly & Berry die (C.C. Designs), sponge, white gel pen, Peapod and Marschino twine (The Twinery), jingle bells ($1 store)

Such a great way to give a coffee gift card.  I even left the gift card from Starbucks in the original envelope (which looks like a present).  Here's a view of the back ...
