Hello, I was recently challenged with a die cut gatefold swap, so I killed two birds and made them coffee related to satisfy this commitment. I hope my partners enjoy them.

I have many coffee sentiments to choose from, with this challenge I was sticking with one that would fit nicely on my band.  I chose these from a couple of my latest coffee themed stamp sets from Stamplorations and Maple & Ink.

I also embossed each side of the gatefold and distressed with Quick Quotes chalking ink.  There is a trick to it since you don't want to flatten your embossing you have to emboss last.  So...I did run each side through independently, more work but worth is for a chance at perfection. 

Here's my open gatefold.  I thought the Tim Holtz blueprint stamp was perfect for the inside which reveals the "blueprint" part.
