Score and fold the card base in half as you would if you were making a normal card. Then cut 2-3/4” down the score line from the top of the card and fold down to the inside of the card (this will make a pocket for a gift card). To keep the pocket from bulging, trim 1/8” off the inside of the piece folded down to make the pocket.

Using the 1-1/2” Circle Punch, punch half a circle on the folded piece to be able to slide the gift card in and out of the pocket.

Use Tear and Tape on the inside edge and the bottom edge to make the pocket.

Glue the 5-1/4” x 4” Whisper White piece to the inside of the card, then glue the 3-7/8” x 2-7/8” DSP to the inside Whisper White centering it.

Glue the 2-1/2” x 4” Whisper White piece to bottom front of the card, then glue the 3-7/8” x 2-3/8” DSP to the Whisper White centering it.

Cut a 3-4” piece of the white ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhere to the center of the bottom part of the card front.

Using Cherry Cobbler ink, stamp the round image on Whisper White cardstock, then stamp the coffee cup image with black ink, then stamp the inside image of the cup with Sahara Sand ink. Die cut both of these images with the Warm Wraps dies. You can also die cut at the same time the larger circle out of the Shaded Spruce cardstock.

Glue the round image to the front of the Shaded Spruce circle and then using a Mini Dimensional adhere the coffee cup die cut to the inside of the circle. Then glue the whole piece over the ribbon on the center of the bottom section of the card.

Stamp the greeting “Eat Drink and be cozy” in the inside of the card on the Whisper White cardstock.

It's gift giving time so a gift card holder is perfect.  Download Warm Hugs
