I came up with this card which kind of covers both themes.

1) Die cut two mugs using the My Favorite Things Hot Cocoa Cups dies using aqua card, and then ink around the bottom and edges with some ink.

2) Die cut the cream swirl, hot chocolate, and hearts from white card and colour with alcohol markers. Ink the edges of the cream and layer up all the pieces onto the mugs.

3) Die cut a Wonky Rectangle (MFT) and stamp the greeting from MFT Hug in a Mug stamp set in red ink.

4) Take a piece of patterned paper from the Papertrey Ink Sparkle and Shine collection and mount it onto an A2 card. Layer up the rectangle and mount the mugs with some fun foam to give dimension.

5) Finish off by stamping some chocolate sprinkles onto the cream and add a tiny white heart to one of the mugs.

Why not pop over to the blog to see some great inspiration from the team and add another card or two to your Christmas pile this month.
Thanks for stopping by.
