Christmas Cocoa

Inspiration for this card was the "Holiday Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop" invitation to create a card reflecting hot and cozy drinks for the holidays.
My "Christmas Cocoa" project used traditional Christmas colours and warm mittens hugging a snowflake mug of steaming hot cocoa.
I used a poinsettia folder to emboss the background layer. I also used an embossing folder to add texture to the mittens. After punching out the mitten tops, I used red glitter on the berries of the DSP.
Wink of Stella was used to add glitter to the snowflake and "steam".

THANK YOU ALL for the wonderful comments you have left!!
