Cup of Joy Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hi friends! Today is the kickoff to the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. It's that time when we get to see visions of coffee dancing through blogland for an entire week!  Verve is a sponsor once again, plus I've designed a limited time free digital set you can download over in the Verve shop.

Today's card uses two of the digis from the My Cup to Yours digi set printed on white cardstock. I cut the cup with the Cuppa Joe Die Set (yep, the digi works with the die, so hooray!), then cut the sentiment with a stitched circle die and sponged inside with antique linen.  I wanted to add a gift card holder to my card to tuck in a Starbucks card, so designed a simple little pocket to hold one.

It's a 2.75" x 3.25" piece of cardstock, scored 0.25" from each of three sides.  I ran it through my Big Shot with a snowflake embossing folder and also punched a notch in the top center with a 1/2" circle punch. I then folded the three sides under and used score tape to adhere to a 2-3/8" x 3-1/8" panel of black cardstock.  I finished with some fun My Mind's Eye paper, a greena bow and silver jingle bells.

For another card from me using this new freebie, head on over to the Verve Blog for our Super Sponsor post! Just make a winter themed coffee, tea or cocoa project and link it up to the official Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop post for a chance to win one of the fabulous prizes! The hop runs through next Friday, December 16.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful day!
