Holiday Card 39 - Hot Cocoa and Warm, Fuzzy Socks

Hello, everyone!  It's Day 3 of the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop! The theme is Fall or Winter - plus Coffee, Tea or Cocoa, of course! Today I went with a cocoa-themed holiday card!


The adorable penguin is Beccy's Place Finn's Hot Chocolate. I used the precoloured version and fussy-cut so I could pop him up on foam tape. The sentiment is from AC Digitals - Crate Paper Snow and Cocoa, which I die-cut with a Nellie's Multi-frame Oval. I thought it went so perfectly with this image! The die is Memory Box Flurry Snowflake Frame, and I embossed it with Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow. Behind Finn, the patterned paper is from Eno-greeting Christmas Collection. I added some scraps of patterned paper (one with a torn edge) and a thin strip of red glitter paper at the top and bottom. I finished off the card with three red snowflake sequins and a number of green tree confetti (they look very dark in the photo, but they are green).

Beccy said...

Your card is fabulous Kitty, I love the snowy background. The embossing combined with the die cut is gorgeous, and the soft green background paper is lovely. I like the sentiment you added, it works perfectly with the image... he actually looks as though he's thinking exactly that thought! Love it!
Cheers,
Beccy
