Cup of Cheer Gift Card Holder

GIFT CARD HOLDERS is the theme for this week’s Crafty Creations challenge.  I’ve been down with the flu this past week and drinking lots of  hot comforting mugs of tea with lemon, so perhaps that’s why I used this cup shape  for my gift card holder!

I designed the card by welding the cup to it’s flipped image  uisng the Cricut Design Studio and Joys of the Season cartridge.  The holly border is cut into the dp layer, the dp  is adhered to a second layer ( front cup shape) cut from white card stock  for additional stability. These two layers were adhered with double sided tape to the front of the card base to form the pocket for the gift card.  The mistletoe is cut from the same cartridge and I’ve use two little candy cane beads for the berries.  The inside sentiment is from Flourishes Sweets of the Season set.

I often give coffee shop gift cards at Christmas, and I think this is a fun way to present them.  I like that it’s a card and gift card holder in one!


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
