Happy Holidays

This adorable hot cocoa holiday card was created for the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge. The challenge was to create a holiday card with your favorite warm beverage. Well, we got snow here today in SE Missouri and I had several cups of cocoa today so thought this this card might be appropriate. I started by layering some black cardstock from Hobby Lobby onto my white card base. I layered a piece of pretty plaid patterned paper from the American Crafts Hot Cocoa 6x6 paper pad on top. I die cut a white circle using a die from Spellbinders and then cut a larger circle using a My Favorite Things pierced circle die, layered them together, and popped them up using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I die cut my mugs (I'm sorry...I don't know who makes the die) using some more of the patterned paper from the same paper pad and colored the cocoa portion in using a Copic marker. I layered the die cut marshmallows on top and popped the mugs up using foam dimensionals. I layered a piece of white and black cardstock together and die cut my sentiment from an Impression Obsession die and glued it to the panel. A few die cut snowflakes from My Favorite Things and a couple of black gem stones from Ki complete the card!
