I'm entering this card into the following challenges, Jingle Belles - JB:20:04 where they want to see a mostly RED card, and to 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - 52CCT07-20 where they have a Cocoa theme.
The striped background on this card is the piece I had left after making the ladybug birthday card earlier this month. I layered the panel on bright red card and added a strip of red glitter paper. Using my MISTI (and leaving the stamp in place) I stamped the festive mug of hot chocolate on white card, coloured it with Copic markers and then restamped using Versafine black ink, and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out with the matching die. I added shimmer to cream, cherry and red berries with a clear shimmer brush and also added a glaze coat to the cherry. I stamped a simple sentiment in red and adhered the mug with dimensional pads. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of red card and on the white panel added a greeting and another sweet mug of cocoa.
My plan for the rest of the day is to make some more cards - only this time I think I need to make some birthday cards for my stash. I hope that wherever you are, you keep warm and safe. That's all for now.
