I am popping in with a quick card to celebrate the National Cocoa Day on the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. The funny thing is, that my Simon Says Stamp package just arrived in the morning and it had a little freebie stamp with this cute image. I felt I just had to use it right away.
I started with die cutting a tag (Clearly Besotted die) from white cardstock, added a little blue gingham paper with a dark brown mat to the bottom of it. I stamped the sentiment from the mini set with Gina K Designs inks.
Then I stamped the mouse with the cacao, coloured it with Copics and added some details with a white gel pen, black glaze pen, Spectrum Noir Shimmer pen and glossy accents.
While it was drying I die cut some pine tree branches (Simon Says Stamp) from metallic green cardstock and covered the whole of the tag. I also added a dark red paper bow (Mama Elephant die) using liquid glue.
The background is a cute patterned paper from Doodlebug, matted with dark brown cardstock. I used 3D foam tape to pop up the tag.
I will upload this to the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and also to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Christmas/Winter holidays.
I hope you like my card and will pop in again soon. I am off to have my hot cacao now from my favourite mug! Yummie.
See you soon,
