Joy Bear - Hot Cocoa Pouch Card

Hello, everybody! Welcome to Day 6 of the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! The hop runs through December 18 and anyone can join!  We are focusing on winter/holiday projects with images of coffee, tea, or cocoa. Hope to see you there!



Today I am sharing yet another hot cocoa pouch card!  I made a lot of these hehe. I like that 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 Bugaboo Digi Stamps called Hot Cocoa Bear and I coloured him with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut so I could pop him up with foam tape. I added lots of SU Dazzling Diamond glitter along the white parts of his hat.  I was inspired by the sketch over at Taylored Expressions' Share Joy Challenge.



I used snippets of patterned paper from Lawn Fawn and MME and cut the pieces according to the sketch. The die-cut sentiment is from Serendipity Stamps, and the ribbon is from May Arts Ribbon Resource.  I added a puffy heart sticker to the cocoa cup and a red holographic snowflake behind the cup.


On the inside, I stamped the fun sentiment from STAMPlorations - Caffeinated Christmas (I won this set - thank you, Shery!). I added two strips of leftover snippets of coordinating patterned paper and another holographic snowflake.
