Hi! It’s Carly Tee and I’m so excited to be here on the Right at Home blog! Coffee is always a good idea, right? I think so but I will tell you a secret, even though I’m a Seattle girl I don’t like coffee. Blasphemous I know but I still love a trip to the coffee shop! I just drink tea or coconut milk hot chocolate – yum! And even though I don’t drink it myself, I can absolutely appreciate how a cupof coffee can turn the day around!
The Cup Of Joy set is perfect for brightening someone’s day! And I have a quick and easy way to create a gift card holder inside a card.
To start, just create your A2 card as desired. I stamped a coffee cup, then masked it before using dye inks in a CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow & black) color palette and Abstract Florals to create a colorful & mod background around my coffee cup. I love the way the CMYK dye inks blend to create other colors.
To create the gift card holder insert, cut a piece of cardstock to 4-1/2 x 8. Score at ½, 4 and 7-1/2.
Fold on the 4 inch score line and use a circle punch or die to cut a circle notch on the fold line. I used a 1-1/2 circle punch.
Use scissors to cut a little triangle notch from each side of the circle to create an opening that a gift card can easily slide into and out of.
Decorate as desired, then fold ½ and 7-1/2 score lines, insert gift card and adhere the flaps to the inside of the card.
Thanks for stopping by and hanging out with me for a bit! Hope you are off to brighten someone’s day with a cup of joy!
