Hi, everyone! Winter’s here and it’s getting cold outside. Teri here with a fun way to warm things up by making some cute cards to send warm cocoa wishes to your loved ones.
These cards also work well for post-holiday cards when you don’t get Christmas cards sent out in time.
Creating Warm Cocoa Wishes Cup
Start by die-cutting two cocoa cups, one from cardstock and one from the 3D Foam Creative Sheet Medium. From the cardstock cup, remove its middle.
Color the cardstock cup frame with markers and place it on the foam cup. Remove the liner from the middle of the cup to add a couple of die cut hearts.
Cover the exposed adhesive in the cup’s middle with white flock. Be sure to fully burnish the flock onto the foam and take off the excess.
Adding Fun Elements
Die-cut a couple of marshmallows from white cardstock and 3D Foam Creative Sheet Medium. Stack to adhere them together before using a pen to add shading to their edges. Die-cut a spoon from white cardstock and add color to it with markers. Set it aside.
Place the marshmallows on the cup and around it. Add the spoon as well. Flip the cup over and add some additional 3D Foam Squares in White wherever there is none.
Assembling the Warm Cocoa Wishes Card 1
Dry-emboss a piece of cardstock panel. Add to a top-folded card. Crafty Power Tape Polybag 81ft is great for adhering embossed paper to cards because you can press it down securely to it.
Add your cocoa cup and a sentiment stamped on a strip of cardstock to your card. Complete your card with a few sequins or gems.
Change It Up With Glitter
You can easily change up your card. Rather than using flock on your cocoa cup, try using glitter instead! Foil is also a great option!
You can also use a much shorter sentiment strip as I did.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you are inspired to try making a few Warm Cocoa Wishes Cards of your own!
