Do you need a Valentine’s Day gift idea for a friend, teacher, or another special person in your life? A gift card is always a simple way to ensure that your loved one gets exactly what they want for the holiday, and today Erica Thompson is sharing the perfect way to give that gift in style!


Hello SCT friends! It’s Erica here with you today sharing some adorable gift card holders using the Doodlebug Design Made With Love collection and a die from My Creative Time.


Supplies | Cardstock: American Crafts; Patterned paper, stickers, die cuts: Doodlebug Design Made With Love Collection; Twine: Doodlebug Design, May Arts; Die: My Creative Time; Adhesive: Foam Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

I love giving gift cards and this Coffee Gift Card Holder Die from My Creative Time is perfect. I love the stitching marks around this die and think it adds the perfect little detail. It was fun to pick out different papers to create the gift cards. Since I am using one collection I know everything is going to coordinate perfectly. Doodlebug Design always has the cutest icons and I just can’t get over the sweet faces on some of the images! They are sure to make your gift recipient smile!

I started by layering up the pretty papers to assemble the coffee cup. I pulled out some of the Doodlebug Design Made With Love embellishments and added die cuts and stickers to each gift cardholder. To give the cards some dimension I popped up some of the elements using foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

This is one of the easiest gift cardholders to put together and one of my absolute favorites. I finished off the coffee gift card holders by adding some twine to each card. I think it is the perfect finishing touch to this already super adorable card. 

Thanks so much for spending some time with me today! I hope you enjoyed these super cute coffee cup gift card holders that are perfect for Valentine’s Day giving and be sure to check out the full Made With Love collection from Doodlebug Design!
