Blue Cocoa Flakes

Hi friends!  Happy National Cocoa Day!  I'm back with another project for the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  It's a super quick little cocoa card I whipped up this morning using the Cup of Kindness digital set and the Merry & Bright set.


I started by coloring the hot cocoa mug with Copic markers, then fussy cutting.  I stamped the snowflake from Merry & Bright in Versamark ink all around the printed sentiment and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  Next I did some emboss resist with tumbled glass and Feathered Peacock distress inks.  I matted this with black and tied a sweet little bow on for accent. The base is embossed with a Darice snowflake embossing folder and I was done!  Easy peasy!


Thanks so much for stopping by!  And don't forget to enjoy a cup of hot cocoa today! Here's a pic of the Toasted Marshmallow Hot Cocoas we enjoyed at IHOP today.  ;)
