Kicking of this Winter 2017 Coffee Loving Blog Hop Day 1, I have a Christmas Cocoa card to share with you.
I found a green/creme plaid paper in my stash that I used for the background. Then I created a wash of watercolored background using the Real Brush pen and die-cut it with the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies from STAMPlorations, also a Super Sponsor for this blog hop. I used 2 sizes of dies to create the frame.
I added the plaid paper on the white card base and then added the frame on top of it.
I stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, die-cut it using one of the Rectangles Dies from Our Daily Bread Designs, who is also a Super Sponsor. I added some ink around the edges with sponge and then added it on the card with adhesive.
I stamped and heat embossed the images with glitter embossing powder. I did it twice to get the thicker look on the embossing images. And then watercolor them with Arteza Real Brush Pens. Because I heat embossed all the images, the watercolor paint is resist. I fussy cut them with micro-tip scissors.
I added the cup with adhesive and then added the cookie on top of it with 3D foam tape. And that’s my card for today! I hope you all like it and inspired to play along with the Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop and link up party this week!
