Merry and Bright - Hot Cocoa Pouch Card

Hello, everybody! Welcome to Day 3 of the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! We would love to see you over there with your winter/holiday projects using images of coffee, tea, or cocoa. The hop runs from December 11 to 18 and anyone can join!


Before I get started, I would like to wish everyone a Happy National Cocoa Day! Woohoo! Cocoa has its own day!


Here is another one of my hot cocoa pouches.  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 stamped the cute kitty from Newton's Nook - Newton Loves Coffee, coloured it with watercolour markers, and fussy-cut. I added a healthy coating of Glossy Accents to the cup. The sentiment is a cut-out from a Lawn Fawn 6x6 paper pad, and I affixed it onto a white panel embossed with Cuttlebug Snowflakes.  I layered it onto a red panel and green patterned paper from the same Lawn Fawn paper pad. I finished it off with a die-cut bow (Elizabeth Crafts). The template for my hot cocoa pouch card can be found in this post.


On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from MFT - Hug in a Mug in green and added strips of holly-themed washi tape along with another die-cut bow.

Some of my followers are keen to know what my elf Eli is up to each day.  Today Eli is celebrating National Cocoa Day with one of his favourites: Starbucks Double Chocolate!  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!
