Did you know that yesterday was National Cocoa Day?? I mean seriously, who can NOT be excited about a day devoted to cocoa?! So of course I needed to have some hot cocoa and today I get to share a card that is all about sharing it with those you love. I created this for my December post over at the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog.
The little cups from the Cup of Cocoa stamp set are just so cute and I love all the variations. I chose two that seemed to work well together and colored them to match. Then I chose the little heart from the same set. All of them were colored with Copic markers and then cut using the coordinating dies. While a number of the sentiments from Cup of Cocoa would work nicely here, I thought this one from Love & Chocolate was just perfect for my sweet little pairing. I stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black and then cut out the oval with stitched dies. The cups and heart are popped up using Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals (those minis are really the BEST). I added a little extra texture in the background with my Softly Falling embossing folder (and it helps keep it wintery). Because hey, there is still time to enter the 2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!
