A Coffee Themed Card for Mom


  • Die-cut the pieces from the Coffee Die Set out of scrapbook paper using the Crossover II Die-Cutting Machine.
  • Assemble the die-cut pieces on a layered card front.
  • For the base of the gift card holder, I cut a piece of cardstock 5 1/4″ x 9 3/4″.  Score lengthwise every 3 1/4″.
  • Adhere a 3″ x 5″ piece of green polka dot paper onto the middle panel.
  • On the third panel, cut down the side approx. 2 1/2″.  Cutaway the remaining section of the panel on a diagonal to create a flap.
  • Adhere the bottom and the short side of the flap to the middle panel to create a pocket.
  • Decorate the pocket with a flower that was “fussy cut” from the floral paper.  Add a small strip to edge the pocket.

Directions Continued:

  • For the letters on the front of the card, I used gold foiled paper.  To make the letters stickers, I ran the gold foiled paper through the Xyron Creative Station*.  As you run the paper through the machine it adds a complete layer of adhesive to the back of the paper.
  • Die-Cut the letters to spell “MOM” using the Alphabet Die Set and the
  • Die-cut the gold foiled paper (with adhesive added to the back) using the alphabet die and the Crossover II Die-Cutting System*.
  • Remove the backing off the back of the letters and stick them onto the front of the card.
  • Tie gold thread around the front of the card and tie it with a knot.

LETTER ALIGNING TIP…If you’re a perfectionist like I am and want to align the letters as straight as possible. Use Gridded Transfer Paper* to help you line up the letters. Place the front of the foiled letters on the adhesive side of the transfer paper, remove the backing off of the foiled paper and transfer the letters onto the front of the card.
