Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Giveaway on 17turtles

Now let's get onto the project that I created to share with you today. I have to admit, it's been really hard to get into the spring spirit here in Cleveland. It has been so cold and we still have inches of snow on the ground. With that being said, I ended up focusing mostly on the coffee part of things!

I was inspired to create a card and gift card holder (containing a Starbuck's gift card).

With Enough Coffee Anything Is Possible Card and Starbucks Gift Card Holder by Juliana Michaels

I created the title on my card using a combination of letter stickers and a digital cut file - Coffee Possible - that you can download for FREE below!

I continued the coffee theme by adding some stamping using a fun coffee stain type stamp.

For the gift card, I created a card using one of the cup images from the 17turtles I Love Coffee & Tea Digital Cut File. Below, I have a quick little tutorial for you on how I took that image and turned it into a card.

SILHOUETTE TUTORIAL | Welding A Cut File Image To Create A Card

To create the card shape, begin by opening the I Love Coffee & Tea Cut File and then separating the 2 layers. Next, select which image you want to use to create the card and delete the other one from the mat.

As you can see, I choose the solid shape. Next make a copy of the image and then flip it horizontally. Line up the images so that they are even with each other and then move one of the images until it very slightly overlaps the other image.

Once the images are lined up and slightly overlapped, select both images, right click and select weld. This will turn the two shapes into one shape that you can fold in half and use as a card. I created a small pocket on the inside of the card to hold the gift card. I did this by attaching the bottom and two sides of a small rectangular piece of cardstock to the inside of the card.
