Sprinkles - Hot Cocoa Pouch Card

Hi, everyone! Before I get started, I would like to welcome my newest follower - kb9upk (Kris B) - thank you for joining me!

Welcome to the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! The hop starts today and runs through December 18. This is our sixth hop - Woohoo! - and I've participated in all six of them! Anyone can join! This time we are focusing on winter/holiday projects, with images of coffee, tea, or cocoa. This is one of my favourite hops so be forewarned... I will be blitzing you with coffee, tea, and cocoa projects all week! It's a blog hop, so commenting is encouraged and much appreciated!


Today I am sharing a 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!  I was inspired to make a bunch of these for family and friends so I will be sharing them all week.


The image is from Your Next Stamp - Sprinkles Coffee and Tea. I coloured it with watercolour markers, drew some snowflakes on the cup with a white gel pen, and then used the coordinating die.  I adhered it to a stitched vellum circle (Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles).  The sentiment is from MFT - Hug in a Mug and I heat embossed it in white on an aqua scrap.  The background is embossed with Darice Snowflakes and then sanded to reveal the white core of the paper. I added a strip of sparkly silver washi tape and three silver snowflake sequins.


On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from MFT - Hug in a Mug. The little mug is from MFT Warm and Fuzzy.  I inked around the edges with Broken China Distress Ink and added an Impression Obsession snowflake. A thin strip of aqua cardstock and some sparkly silver washi tape finish it off.

If you would like to make your own Hot Cocoa Pouch Card, feel free to use my template. Just right click and save:


For those following the antics of my elf Eli, here he is drinking his favourite hot cocoa. He doesn't bother sipping it - he dives right in! Eli is linking up over at DL.ART's Third Annual Elf Antics Linky! If you have a little elf, you will want to join Eli, Arci, Ron, Daisy, Elizabeth, Loopy, Elfin, and Hope in their funny elf antics!
