Hot Chocolate Treat Package

Hello Friends! 
We have the cutest project to share with you today from design team member Leslie! You keep reading... we are heading out to get some hot chocolate!
I made a fun card using TSOL hotchocolate2stamp with coordinating Hot Chocolate Dies I don’t know about you, but where I live it’s the perfect day for some hot cocoa! Brrrr…
No stamping on my cardfront, all die cutting with a little coloring. For my card-base, I used Strawberry Cardstock. I folded the 8.5 x 11 cardstock into fourths. Next, I opened my cardstock and used the Sizzix Big Shot PLUS Machine with Border Dies to create a pocket to hold my packet of hot cocoa. Before gluing the bottom of my pocket, I die cut a Large Rectangle from Celebrate Collection Patterned Paper.
Now, on to the cardfront…
I die cut my mug using Ho Ho Ho Collection Patterned Paper and then colored the inside of my mug to look like cocoa. I diecut the “steam” and marshmallows from Powdered Sugar Cardstock. Next, I decorated the front of my mug by layering first the W Circle Die and then the Stitched Circle Die. I embellished it with a tree.
Who doesn’t enjoy a cookie or two with their cocoa? I added a small plate made with Stitched Oval Dies die cut from patterned paper filled with tree cookies sprinkled with glitter.
I finished the inside off with Christmas Patterned Paper and stamped my sentiment on a die cut heart from Green Apple Cardstock.
