Happiness is Pumpkin Spice COFFEE!......{PKS Challenge}

Good Morning Everyone and Happy HUMP Day :)

I have a fun project to share with you all today for the current Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge. 

This week the challenge was
 Just Cards: Can I Have That Recipe?
Create a card using the theme of Recipe. Ever been invited to a shower that asks you to include a recipe for the bride-to-be? Maybe a friend or loved one is moving to a new home and could use a welcoming gift of a dish and it's recipe? Use your creativity to somehow include a recipe with your card. 

And here is what I came up with.......
I have been waiting for the perfect time to try out a recipe I found in my many hours of Pinterest~ing and knew this challenge would be perfect for it!
So I made a fun card/gift box using a freebie file Ruthie from September Ninth so generously shared HERE
I used the Tea Light Gift Card but instead of the candles I  added some of my YUMMY Pumpkin Spice Creamer. 
Hope you like it!
So what do you think??? Turned out pretty cute if I could say so myself :)
So here is how I made this.....
Like I said above, I took the Gift Card Holder file and cut it out using my Cameo and some Kraft Card stock. Next I cut the pattern paper from Echo Park Reflections Fall paper pack, die cut the cute coffee cup and pumpkin (which you will see in the next pic) and paper pieced them with the EP paper as well. Once the box was all assembled with the pattern paper, I moved onto making the card/tag for the inside.
I will share the recipe first, I did type it out and then die cut it to fit the back of the tag. I tried writing it with my handwriting and it was not working out like I had hoped, so typed it is.  This is such an easy recipe....basically combining all the ingredients and storing until you are ready to put it in your coffee. Like the recipe says, use 1~2 tsp depending on your taste. Since this is about sharing the recipe, I shared some of the yummy creamer too. I used the Skinny Candy Bags I get from Trendy Twine and added 2 tsp per bag. It is the perfect amount to fill exactly half the bag, so I was able to fold over the top, use the pre~taped tab and attach it to the bottom. Even better, those half skinny bags fit perfectly inside the box. I only put in 2 but 3 would also fit.
Finally here is the front of the card/tag where a note can be written to the lucky recipient :)
There is the pumpkin that I die cut and paper pieced as well as some Trendy Twine Chocolate Truffle and the beautiful Ivory Twill Ribbon from my friend Beckie's Store~
