2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Happy National Hot Cocoa Day! I'm joining the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers 
Blog Hop with a card celebrating this auspicious and tummy warming day.
Personally, I don't remember the last time that I had a some hot cocoa, but
I do remember that mini marshmallows were involved.
 

I totally CASE'd my MFT teammie Laurie's card. I used the Stitched Jumbo
Fishtail STAX and cut them from Milk Chocolate card stock. Two mugs were
cut from watercolor card stock and ink distressed in holiday colors. I added
the cocoa and mini marshmallows inside the mug, and a small snowflake
on the outside of each mug.


I created a hinge on the largest banner so the card could stand and open. The
sentiment was white embossed on the second largest banner, and adhered to
the card base with dimensional adhesive. Lastly, the mugs were adhered
beneath the sentiment. I love shaped cards--thanks, Laurie!

 Big thanks to Amy and her helpers for rounding up the awesome sponsors and
pulling off another successful hop!

    What a beauty of a cocoa card. I know that you're an iced coffee kind of girl but it sounds like you need to spoil yourself with a cocoa today with extra marshmallows :)
