Finn - Hot Cocoa Pouch Card

Hi, everyone! Welcome back to the fourth day of the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! This is my second post today. The hop runs from December 11 to 18 and anyone can join!  We are focusing on winter/holiday projects, with images of coffee, tea, or cocoa.


I am back again today to share another hot cocoa pouch card. It looks like a card on the outside but when you open it up, there's a package of hot cocoa and a candy cane!


The adorable image is from Beccy's Place called Finn's Hot Chocolate (I won this, thank you, Beccy!).  I had a lot of Hot Cocoa Pouches to make so I used the pre-coloured image. It's die-cut with Lawn Fawn Stitched Oval Stackables.  The background is embossed with Cuttlebug Christmas Set and then sanded. The stamped sentiment is from MFT - Hug in a Mug.  I added some May Arts lace, green polka-dot ribbon, and a snowflake charm.  A few black sequins finish it off.


On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from MFT - Hug in a Mug in red and a little snowflake mug from Sugar Pea Designs - Sweet Treats in green.  To finish it off, I added some decorative washi tape.

I would also like the join the following challenges:  Beccy's Place AG UE;  Bugaboo Catch the Bug Penguin Parade 1/3; Choux Choux Paper Art Christmas Winter UE; Craft Your Passion AG 2/3; Craftin Desert Divas Christmas Linky UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Christmas UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Extra December UE; Dragonfly Dreams It's Christmas UE; Fussy and Fancy Happy Holidays UE;  Inspiration Destination AG UE; Just Keep on Creating December AG UE;  MFP Stamp Shop Speedy Fox and Friends Green  1/5; Not Just Cards AG UE; Pile It On Christmas/Winter UE; Scrapbook Blessings Club 3rd Annual Christmas Party UE; Simon Says Stamp Monday A Pinch of...
