I am so glad I was able to participate in this hop! I made a card using a cocoa element from The Daily Grind Collection Vol. 1: Holiday Mint Add-On which happens to be freebie created a couple years ago in the very early days of Winnie & Walter. It is full of digital goodies that you can use not only digitally but also in hybrid (physical) projects.
I really love this cup of cocoa Julie illustrated and it is so easy to use! I simply imported the cocoa image into a Word file and printed it out in color on white cardstock. I cut it out and colored in some shadows onto the yummy mound of whipped cream (got to love how much cream is in that cup!) to add some definition and depth. I stamped the sentiment from Merry & Bright with Evelin T Designs in Versamark and embossed it in white.
On a panel of white cardstock I stamped the snowflakes from Merry & Bright with Evelin T Designs in grey. In the middle of the panel I stamped Mini Scenery: The Peppermint Zone in red to play up the sweet candy cane in the cup of cocoa. I added a border of grey around the peppermint rectangle. I adhered the snowflake panel to a piece of My Mind's Eye patterned paper which was adhered to a white A2 card base. On the snowflake panel I glued on some holographic snowflake sequins. Last I adhered the cup of cocoa using dimensional foam adhesive.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and have a chance to relax with a cuppa of your favorite warm beverage.
