Because Crack is Bad for You Card

Sometimes giving a gift card is the absolutely best option when it comes to gift giving. Whether you’re a lazy gifter and going for a last-minute idea or just plain have a coffee addict friend who will scream for joy after getting some bucks for Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts, the Because Crack is Bad for You Card is the perfect handmade card to turn that usually boring gift into a hilarious sentiment. Relatively easy to construct, you could easily make 4 or 5 in one afternoon and save them for coffee gifts later in the year.

In the Designer's Words: "This card is particularly fun because when you pull that flair strip, out falls a Starbuck gift card! It bothers me to just hand someone a simple gift card. I almost feel as if it is impersonal or that they may feel like I didn’t care enough about them to search out a decent gift. This way, even if the recipient is difficult to shop for, they will still feel like they are receiving a genuinely thoughtful gift."
