Tuesday Tutorial

Wow, the response to the last tutorial for Sandy's Funky Fold card was amazing! Weren't those funky cards fun? Let's keep the ball rolling with those differently-shaped cards with this fun tutoral by Jodi. Her cute coffee cup card is just too irresistable in this cold weather that I know a lot of us are still experiencing! My favorite part about this card is the little lip print at the top... it looks just like my coffee cup every morning!

Jodi used all Stampin' Up! products to make this card but I know that you guys will figure out ways to make this card with your own alternates if you like. Also, let's see who can come up with the cutest coffee sentiment for their card??? Or, think outside the box, and make this cup for tea or cocoa! Here's the tutorial. Now go, make, and share!   -Nancy K.

Cardstock used: Certainly Celery, White, Crumb Cake and Expresso


WHITE: 1” x 4 1/8"  (top edges are rounded to make the "lid")
ANOTHER WHITE STRIP: ¼ x 4 1/8"  (part of the "lid")
CRUMB CAKE: 2” x 4” (the crimped "cup holder")
EXPRESSO: 5” X 3” (the insert)
You will also need 4" of ribbon, and whatever bits you want to make your sentiment.

The green card stock is folded in half to make the base of the card. 
The front of the card is run through a diecut machine with an embossing folder of your choice.
At this time, cut a strip from each side diagonally, making the  \_/  shape of the cup.
Using red-line tape or choice of glue, glue the inside edges of the card shut and set aside.  
  (This step makes the green part a "pocket" that the inside of the card slips into!)
For the band on the cup, use the crumb cake cardstock and run it through a crimper. Trim it to fit the green part of the card and adhere.
Stamp the sentiment and punch or cut out if a punch is not available. The ribbon goes around the crumb cake band and the label is mounted over it using dimensional adhesive.

For the insert, mount the Expresso 5x3" carstock to the very top on the back side of the white cardstock "lid" that is 1 x 4 1/8".  Make sure to leave enough space for the Expresso piece to slide down into the card. Then turn it over and adhere the small strip to the white piece and give it a kiss! Slide this into the card and you are done. (This part also requires a bit of trimming, to get the edges to match the "cup" shape!)

Thank you, Jodi, for the awesome tutorial! Jodi doesn't have a blog, so please... leave her some love in the comments, and be sure to share your cup cards here!

This is a great card/gift card holder!! I'm too much of a visual learner, that I had trouble understanding the written directions. I found a youtube video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oouz-j6i0tY ) that helped me understand. :o)
