Extra Large Coffee Cup Pocket Card

Thought I'd make another entry for the

How about that super cute greeting?
You (and cocoa) made my day!
The "you made my day" is by
Stampin' Up! and from the stamp set
Click on the title to order from my store.
The ampersand is also by SU!
and is from the stamp set
The word "cocoa" is by
Sweet'n Sassy Stamps and is in the set titled

This is a stamp set designed my
daughter (senior in HS) who was recently
hired as a stamp designer for
(...please forgive me...
the bragging will only last a bit longer. HA!)

I love making these Gift Card Holders!
I usually make a smaller size... one that would
be the equivalent to a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" size.
This time, I wanted to "GO BIG."
Let's see if I can share a few words of instruction...

1. Trim card stock to measure 4-1/4" x 11".

2. Score at 2" and 10".

3. Fold on each scored line.

4. Pencil mark 1/2" IN from corner
on the largest fold's score line (FOLDED).

5. Using Paper Trimmer, trim from pencil mark to
the opposite corner (with folds FOLDED).

6. Add adhesive to the SIDES of the
largest scored area, creating a "pocket."

7. Trim another piece of card stock to measure
4-1/4" x 8".

8. Adhere this piece of card stock
to the smaller scored area, creating a card.

9. Lid of cup card measures 1-1/4" x 5"
(larger piece) and 1" x 4-1/4".

10. Decorate and embellish as desired.

Give it a try!
I'd love for you to revisit and
share a link to your creation!!!

Good grief... the only gift card I could find was a
Build A Bear card! HA!
A Coffee Crossing gift card sure would look good here.
