Warm Wishes

A warm cup of rich hot chocolate is a favorite treat around here, especially after coming in from a day of skiing, hiking or playing in the snow.  We had a light snow this morning, so I was inspired to create this card. I used my Fiskar's Scrap Boss and embossed the cup image then fussy cut around it. I colored it with markers and colored pencils, added the snowflakes and used poly fil to create the steam. To make the candy cane, I cut a piece of white cardstock into a strip and added detail with a red marker and colored pencils. I slipped it into the cocoa by cutting a small slit with an Xacto.   The sentiment was printed with MS Word before attaching the brackets.  I added white cardstock to the red brackets to repeat the candy cane pattern.  I also used the red and white twine for the same reason.
