Merry Café Card with Gift Card Pocket

If you are looking for last night’s Facebook Live video, you can find it HERE!

Today’s project is a quick and easy card with a gift card pocket featuring the Merry Café stamp set!

This project is very similar to THIS project that I shared previously, just with slightly different measurements. This card was also largely inspired by the Merry Café sample in the Holiday Catalog:

Our catalogs are one of my favorite places to go for inspiration! Doesn’t this card make you want to go out and buy a pumpkin spice latte? It’s a perfect way to give someone a Starbucks card to show your appreciation for them. Here’s what the inside looks like:

If you have any questions about this card, let me know! I’ll include all the measurements below so you can recreate it. I didn’t create another video because the basics of this card are so similar to my previous card like this (which already has a video) – the dimensions are just slightly different.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!
