May Your Cup

Today's card was created in honor of National Cocoa Day. I was so bummed out during the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop that I wasn't able to use the free digi file that Verve generously provided for the hop because my printer was out of commission at the time. My printer is up and running now so I knew I wanted to use the great little cocoa mugs from this hop's free digi found here for the Holiday Coffee Lovers Bloghop. I colored them using Copic markers and fussy cut them out. I layered on some of the gorgeous papers from the American Crafts Hot Cocoa 6x6 paper pad. I added a bit of red and white braiding ric rac that I found in the dollar bin this morning at Target. I cut one of the sentiments from the digital and cut a fishtail banner out of it. I mounted it up onto some foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives and placed it near the top of the card. I popped the cocoa mugs up with the same foam squares and added some clear Wink of Stella to them and the sentiment for some added shine and glimmer. A few bright red sequins I picked up at my local dollar store complete the card. I plan on sending this out to a very crafty friend for Christmas.
