A “Whole Latte Love” Thank You Card

Stampin up stampinup order pretty saleabration patterned occasions card idea catalog punch
I wanted to create a special card as a thank you to my sister, Susan (a gift card is tucked inside).  When I recently traveled to Madison, I was still recovering from the flu.  Susan graciously nursed me back to health with lots of HGTV, herbal tea and “cheesy potatoes.”  Wonderful medicine!


  • I cropped about 3/4″ of an inch off the front right of the card base to expose the Very Vanilla card stock behind.

  • The Needlepoint Border Embossing Folder left a sweet cross stitch pattern on the exposed edge.
  • A 3/16″ Corner Punch adds a quick and simple detail.

  • A punched heart and pearl are a charming way to bring the coffee “steam” to life.

  1. Were these your famous cheesy potatoes? That will do the trick to make you better. I have been down with the nasty flu for 6 days now and just starting to feel better. I wish your sis was here to nurse me back to health. Glad you’re feeling better.

  2. Beautiful card, I’m sure your sister will love it. The embossed cross stitching adds that extra little something that makes it stand out as unique and very special.

  3. I just LOVE this card!!! Polka dots, pearls, embossing, and the colors are JUST MY STYLE!! Thanks so much for sharing this!

  4. I’m sure Susan is going to love her card (and surprise). HOW SWEET that your sister helped to take care of you while back in Madison. Sorry you were under the weather and having to go through all the issues with being back there. Glad your better now and back in Tucson with your good health. LOVE your gift card holder Mary!
