For today’s post I loved making these Coffee Cup Gift Card Holders so much that I’ve made two versions, a winter themed one and a Christmas one. I can’t decide which is my favourite.
For the gift card base take a piece of cardstock measuring 10.5cm x 28cm and score at 7cm and 14cm on the long side. Turn the cardstock round 90 degrees and make a score mark at 5cm. Cut the cardstock from the 5cm mark to the top of the 7cm scoreline, as shown in the picture below. Fold the gift card holder in half at 14cm and then fold inwards at 7cm, that completes the card base.
To make the front half section of the card cut a piece of Soft Sky to 6.5cm x 10cm and a piece of the Coffee Break DSP to 6cm x 9.5cm, layer them together and stick to the front of the card using Fast Fuse Adhesive.
For the coffee cups I used images from the Coffee Café and Merry Café stamps sets and stamped the in Early Expresso ink and then cut out with the Bigshot using the Coffee Cup Framelits. Assemble the cups as shown and fix to the front of the card. When sticking the first coffee cup down be care to only use adhesive on one side so the overlapping part is not sticky.
To make the inside of the card take a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 13cm x 9.5cm and stamp the greeting and snowflakes with Early Expresso. Matt the white stamped cardstock onto a layer of Soft Sky cardstock measuring 13.5cm x 10cm and adhere to the inside of the card using Fast Fuse.
To make the gift card holder part run fast fuse along the bottom of the inside flap and up to the 5cm, once stuck down this with create a triangular shaped pocket to insert your gift card.
To make the Christmas version use a Garden Green base and Cherry Cobbler instead of Soft Sky and replace the Coffee Break DSP with the Be Merry DSP. Use a combination of Basic Black Archival and Cherry Cobbler ink for the stamping.
So there are my two projects for today, which do you prefer? I love them both but think the Crumb Cake/ Soft Sky just has the edge.
