Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Card #4 (Teacher Thank-You Coffee Cup Pop-Up)

Good Morning friends

Today I'm sharing my fourth card for the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop. There has been a TON of inspiration - this is always such a fun hop.

I was making our daughters some Teacher Thank You cards, so that is what this card is. In Alberta, the kids don't get out of school in May like they do in many parts of the US ... they go til at least the third week of June.

I wanted to put THANKS on the card front, but didn't have a die big enough. Instead I used Karen Burniston's new Alphabet die set - it's going to be so handy to customize a card! Karen Burniston Riley is a Super Sponsor of the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop! Yup - there are lots of prizes to be won as you are hopping around. I also added a sweet little To Go coffee cup from the Coffee Charms set.

I love the floral lid on the To Go cup ... it was a scrap of paper leftover from a different card, but so pretty I had hung onto it for a bit. It is double sided, with the floral on the front and the brown & white print on the back. I was able to use up the whole scrap for this card using both patterns! Gotta love that.

The Coffee Cup Pop-Up cuts slits for you to insert a gift card if you wish. Because our daughter wanted this for a teacher thank you and wanted to include a Tim Horton's gift card, I photographed the card with my printed gift card.

Such a true sentiment for sure.

There is room for the kids to sign their name on the white crosshatch rectangle, and I popped up the A+ with foam tape. I was careful to check for catch points before adhering it down though.

Our daughter was thrilled with the card, and I know the teacher that receives this will also be happy. I love that I can customize a card for someone specific and it won't be like any of the other cards they receive.
