Merry Cafe Hot Cocoa Mug

You may have seen this card yesterday. I put the wrong date in and it posted early before I had put in the text. So sorry for that. But now I have the text done so you can see how I made the card.

Isn’t this a fun card? I totally cased it from Monica Gale. I loved everything about it, and it uses the Coffee Cups Framelits. The snowflakes are from Seasonal Layers Thinlits. Can you guess what I did to make the “whip cream”? Yep, its our Embossing Paste. I sponged the whipped Cream” first, then did the Embossing Paste, and then “winked” it with the Clear Wink of Stella once the Embossing Paste was dried.

The White layer is Shimmery White Cardstock. With a sponge and Pool Party Ink, I sponged right around where the cup would be. I die cut the large cup from the Coffee Cups Framelits. Can you guess what the “handle” is from? Its the Large Letter Framelits. I used the C, but you could use the O or G too. Monica was pretty clever to use the letter for the handle. There is also a 2″ piece of the Wood Textures Designer Paper on the bottom. The sentiment is from the Merry Cafe stamp set in the Holiday Catalog. You can see the cute little Decorative Border Punch under the Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon. The cup is popped up with Dimensionals and then I added the snowflakes with a glue dot and a Rhinestone in the middle.
