Boss's Day 2017 Images©Stampin' Up!
I was asked by one of my co-workers to create two boss's day cards. I wanted to created something that would show our appreciation. I created two cards. I choose the Coffee Cafe Bundle for our male boss and the Floral Phrases stamp set for our female boss. They both really love their card.

Stamping and Die Cutting:
Stamp the coffee cup and lid on very vanilla cardstock using the coffee cafe stamp set. Use the coffee cup framelit dies to cut coffee cup and lid. Create custom dsp with coffee bean stamp using the tone on tone stamping technique. Stamp sentiment and coffee beans on card base using early espresso ink.
Stamp the sentiment on card base using vertical greetings stamp set. Stamp the sentiment in melon mambo and lemon lime twist ink.
Arrange and layer garden green cardstock, early espresso card strip to card base according to the picture using fast fuse. Attach coffee cup and lid embellishment with dimensionals.
Along the long 5-1/4″ side, find the middle (2-5/8″) and cut in 2″. Now I just folded the triangles back from the corner of the Designer Paper to the cut line! It’s as simple as that!!! I did add a little bit of fast fuse to hold my triangles back and in place! Then attached piece to card base. I added ribbon and enamels shapes to give the card that extra pop.
As you can see all these steps produced two super cute cards. The bosses were very happy and thankful for their celebration.
