Imagine that... Coffee Giftcard Holder

By now most of you have heard about {or may even have} the new Cricut Imagine the incredible machine that combines an HP printer and all the wondrous properties of the Cricut expression. I have only played with this machine a few times and let me tell you it is just the greatest thing since sliced bread!  I will be sharing my imagine journey with you, bringing you videos, tutorials and experiments. Each Tuesday will bring an installment of my "Imagine that" series! So WELCOME to the first of the series!

This Coffee cup shaped gift card holder is an isolated image from Best friends cricut Imagine cartridge.
To create this shaped card, you will select the Tea party invitation and add layers, delete all the images except the cup. Edit image to cut at 4". With a craft knife cut along the coffee line and add crystal effects for shine. {note} If you heat crystal effect it will "bubble" up a bit...this was a total accident but I think it looks like real hot liquid so I kept it!



Best friend images.




On back side of card add a pocket for the gift card to slip into. I added a back to my gift card holder by cutting a second coffee cup with no printing, you do this by editing the image and clicking on the white square with a red line through it at the bottom of your imagine screen left hand side. {easy I promise} I adhered the front to the back and now I'm one step closer to having my Holiday gift list completed......still A Looooong ways to go! *snort*
