Warmest Wishes

Hello Coffee Lovers and Fellow Bloggers!!

Today is Day 6 of the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop and today is National Cocoa Day!!

 Today I made a card using Super Sponsor Joy Clair Christmas Cocoa stamp set!


Gina Marie Design Big and Little Pierced Chain Rectangle dies
White card stock
Red patterned paper
Black ink
Silver embossing powder
Copic markers

For this A2 card I started with White card stock for the base of the card.  I took the red patterned paper, inked the edges with black ink and added that to the base of the card.  I took a piece of watercolor paper, black ink and the cups from the Joy Clair Christmas Cocoa stamp set and stamped the cups onto the paper and then colored them in with Copic markers.  I took some Versamark and the snowflakes from the same stamp set and stamped them onto the cups and then heat embossed them with Silver Embossing powder.  I cut out the cups using the Gina Marie Designs Big and Little Pierced Chain Rectangle die, inked the edges with black ink and then added that to the card.  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and then heat embossed that with the Silver embossing powder.  I took the DL.ART Granite Crinkle Ribbon from the Galaxy Bundle and made a bow and attached that to the card.
