As I finished up my Christmas card list, I realized that I did not create enough cards, so I decided to make this Coffee Lovers Christmas card for my coffee loving friends. I created this in Cricut® Design Space using the Coffee to Go image from our You Are Here cartridge and have included a short tutorial for you to show you how to create the card base. As always, the list of supplies I used can be found at the very bottom of this post.

Cricut® Design Space Instructions:
1. After inserting the Coffee to Go – #M2845F0F image into your Canvas, RESIZE the image to 5.5″h.
2. UNGROUP the image so that you have two separate images in your Layers Panel, then DELETE the top layer. (I ROTATED the bottom layer 90′ to see it better.)
3. DUPLICATE your image, then FLIP HORIZONTAL.

4. Move the images until the “lids” touch completely, then SELECT ALL and WELD.
CupWeld5. Insert a SCORE LINE and RESIZE to 4″h. SELECT ALL and ALIGN CENTER.

6. To attach the Score Line to the image, SELECT ALL then choose ATTACH. (To check that it is attached, choose Make It and see if the score line is attached to the cup.)

I used the Contour and Slice options to create my additional layers, stamped a cute saying inside, and ended up with a pretty cute card.  You can continue through the blog hop and see more ideas from twenty other Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the You Are Here Collection. and other great Close to My Heart products on their blogs.
