Snowman Soup - Hot Cocoa Pouch Card

Hi, everyone! Welcome back to the sixth day of the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! This is my second post today. The hop runs through Friday, December 18, so you still have time to join! It's open to anyone!  Just link up your winter/holiday projects featuring images of coffee, tea, or cocoa.


I am back today to share yet another hot cocoa pouch. Yes, I've made a lot of them! Who doesn't like cocoa?! Anyway, it looks like a card on the outside but when you open it up, there's a package of hot chocolate and a candy cane!


The adorable image is from Deedee's Digis, called Snowman Soup. I had a lot of Hot Cocoa Pouches to make so I used the pre-coloured image. (By the way, Deedee's Digis is closing at the end of the year and she is having a massive 75% off sale storewide. This digi set, including sentiments, is on sale for a low 56 cents so you might want to head over and grab a bargain or two! Her sets also include the digital stamp so you can colour the image yourself.) 

The background is embossed with Cuttlebug Snowflakes. I heat-embossed the sentiment from Sugar Pea Designs - Sweet Treats in white on a green scrap and hand-cut a banner shape.  I added a wide strip of blue glitter tape and a red holographic snowflake.


On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from MFT - Hug in a Mug. The die-cut mug is from MFT Warm and Fuzzy.  I inked around the edges with Broken China Distress Ink and added an Impression Obsession snowflake. Strips of snowman washi tape finish it off.

I know some of you are wondering what's going on with my elf Eli... well, Eli has developed a serious crush on another elf that he "met" over at DL.ART's Third Annual Elf Antics LinkyHe wanted me to keep it a secret, but the cat is out of the bag!  Here Eli is pictured swooning over her photo. If you don't recognize the lovely elf, her name is Loopy!  Eli thinks she looks like a princess and he is smitten! I have told him it's not going to work out - this is not a singles linky!  I don't know if he's been texting Loopy or not. I hope she plays it cool and ignores him! There is a lot going on over at the Elf Antics Linky so if you have an elf, you might want to check it out!

  3. Haha!! I am just laughing to no end at Eli's crush on Loopy!! This is so sweet and so hilarious. I have a feeling they might have been texting because Loopy is spending an awful lot of time hunched over her phone over in the corner. Of course, she could just be doing her online Christmas shopping!!

  4. Oh, I forgot to say that your snowman soup card is soooooo adorable! I've seen different cocoa favor pouches but none like this. The candy cane is the perfect addition to your cocoa pouch and a great way to give a little gift to friends or family. I'm going to have to look through my stamps to see if I have one that I can use for a similar design.

  23. I just "popped" on here to see what you been up too and as I scroll down to the bottom of this page; sounds like you have been busy! I picked up some maple hot chocolate last month when I was putting in time waiting for a relative at their appointment! Had a small urge to make something to put it into! But never got around to make one yet; so now I'm inspired! Thank you! Hope you are doing well! Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

  32. I'm with you Kitty... hot chocolate is pure Christmas ambrosia! I don't know many people who wouldn't like to receive such a delicious treat, especially in such a fabulous wrapping! All your pouch cards have been wonderful, including this one. I love the cute little snowman. I also like the festive colour scheme you used... that blue is particularly vibrant. Well done.
    Cheers,
    Beccy
