Thanks a Latte ensemble

Hi everyone!  I have a cute ensemble to share today.  I made a card and a coordinating little Starbucks Via coffee holder, which can also be used for tea bags. What I like about this card is the coffee cup is on the inside with an opening die cut into the front.  I used my Ovals SM die for the opening and accented it with the nesting Scalloped Ovals SM. Gives it that extra something special.
And here's the ensemble.
The little packet holder was SUPER easy to make.  I cut a piece of white cardstock 6 1/2" x 3 1/4" and scored it at the 3" line.  Then I placed a piece of Scor-tape along both sides -viola, done!  You can adjust the size of cardstock to accommodate just about anything, but this size is perfect for Via packets and tea bags.  A little tip: Stamp your sentiment and score any lines before you adhere the sides together.
 Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  Here is a close up picture.
