Hi Friends! Today is National Cocoa Day which is definitely something to celebrate! And Paper Sweeties is once again a sponsor for the amazing Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop:
The event has been running since December 9th and this is my first post! I am hoping to maybe squeeze in a few more before the 16th!!!! If you play along you will be eligible for a chance at this prize from Paper Sweeties:
A $25.00 gift card! Yummy! And this is just one of MANY prizes and MANY WONDERFUL SPONSORS! See what I mean.... it is an AMAZING EVENT! I hope you will play along too! The more the merrier especially at this time of year! :)
To create my card I drew inspiration from this month's inspiration graphic for Paper Sweeties Challenge:
Onto my card.....
My sweet "Christmas Cocoa" card uses lots of yummy stamps and sweet cuts dies from Paper Sweeties! The sweet cup and saucer are from the "Eat Cake" stamp set. The holly is from the new "Jingle All The Way" sweet cuts. The whip cream is actually the cupcake frosting die from the "Sending Sweet Thoughts" Sweet Cuts.
I created the background with the heart border die from the Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts. I cut it repeatedly down the front of a card base. I then backed the openings with a sweet gingham patterned paper and inlaid the die cuts back into the card front with only some of the hearts in place. I added "Stickles" diamond to some of the hearts for a little bit of holiday shine!
Thanks for taking a look at my card! I cannot wait to hop around and see more of the wonderful projects being posted! Gorgeous Inspiration! Thanks to everyone that makes this event happen and to all of the incredible sponsors! Happy Holidays to all!
