In Case of Emergency...

I am participating in a card swap with a theme of caffeinated drinks.  I was going to go with coffee but came across this paper in my stash.  From there I found this uninked stamp set from Stamposaurus that I quite like.  It makes me think of my DMIL, whom I'm sure you've guessed by now, is British.

This standard 4.25 x 5.5 inch card has two pockets on the front.  I've tucked in a packet of David's green tea for my swap sister to enjoy.  There is a second pocket that could be used for a gift card if the card was going to be used as a gift.

I always worry that my swap cards are not elaborate enough so hopefully everyone will enjoy it.  My next set will definitely be coffee related though.

Challenges this Card Meets:
All Sorts Challenge - Use those Dies
Alphabet Challenge - D for Diecuts
Craft for the Craic - Something that Includes Green
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Cut it Up - Anything Goes with a Diecut
Sister Act - Make a Card
Card Makin Mamas - Photo Inspiration - I was inspired by the chest of drawers for my colours.
