Last of the Hot Cocoa Pouch Cards

Hello, everybody! Before I get started, I would like to welcome my newest follower - *Vicki* - thank you for joining me!

Welcome to the final day of the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! I hate to see it end - I've had so much fun!  You still have until 11:55 p.m. Pacific to join!


Today I am sharing yet another hot cocoa pouch card. This is the last one (I think, hehe, I will have to count to see if I have enough!).  I like these pouch cards because they look like a card on the outside but when you open them up, there's a package of hot cocoa and a candy cane!


The yummy image is from Diane's Daydream Designs (shop closed, no longer available). 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. The stamped sentiment is from MFT - Hug in a Mug. I added some baker's twine, hand-cut banner, and a die-cut Impression Obsession snowflake.


On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from MFT - Hug in a Mug and added some decorative washi tape.

I mentioned yesterday that my elf Eli went on a road trip.  Check out the elf humour he found when he went to town! If you enjoy elf humour, here is last year's funny signEli and I are linking up over at DL.ART's Third Annual Elf Antics Linky

These cocoa pouches are so adorably warm and cozy looking! May I ask you who makes those cocoa packets? I love the Warm Hug on a Cold Day saying on them. I'm pinning this to use for next year's greetings to good friends and family! As for Eli, no wonder he wanted to go into town..he knew that elves are more than welcome there. My elf, Wally, saw Eli trying to sneak a ride yesterday and decided to try it himself this morning, but he'll have to wait until evening when we check out the neighborhood Christmas decorations.

I love the colour scheme you used for this pocket card Kitty, the vanilla coloured background makes me think of shortbread or wafers... perfect accompaniments for hot chocolate!
Cheers,
