Holiday Coffee Café Gift Card Holder Cards
If you have a coffee gift card to give this holiday season, what could be cuter than a coordinating coffee gift card holder?! This card is similar to the card I designed for my Coffee Café class over the summer. See it here: Happiness Is Sharing Gift Card Holder.
CASEd from Patty Bennett at Patty's Stamping Spot.
Gift Card Basics—This card begins with a 11" x 4-1/4" Cherry Cobbler card base, scored along the 11" side at 2" and 5-1/2" marks.
Card Inside—I punched out a little notch on the edge of the 2" flap with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch, then adhered the sides with Tear & Tape to create the gift card pocket. Next, I stamped the Coffee Café sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink on the right side of the 5-1/4" x 4" Whisper White layer. I also added holly leaves in Emerald Envy and berries in Cherry Cobbler.
Front Décor—I added a 3-1/4" x 4" layer of Whisper White card stock, embossed with the Quilt Top Embossing Folder, to the front flap, then adhered a Gold Foil Snowflake to the top. The coffee cup parts are die-cut with the Coffee Cup Framelits. The cup is cut from Be Merry Designer Series Paper, the lid is Whisper White card stock and the cup wrap is Crumb Cake card stock. After those parts were adhered together, I tied a knot in the Emerald Envy Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and secured the ends around the back of the cup with SNAIL. The cup is popped up with Dimensionals.

Two Cool—My second version has a cool, wintery feel, which I adore! The base is Emerald Envy.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the greeting in Island Indigo this time, and added some Pool Party snowflakes from the Merry Café stamp set.
