Hot Chocolate Card and Mini Tutorial

I love giving away hot chocolate during the holiday season and normally I made a pocket card and slide the hot chocolate into the pouch, but I wanted to make one this year that was more like a card, so this is what I have come up. Such a simple design and it works perfectly! I chose my colors based one the hot chocolate packet colors, but I think I will go back and do one in more traditional colors. I used brilliance cloud white ink on the cuttlebugged layer just to bring the snowflakes to life........LOL!

I am giving you a view of the inside and of the side with the tie, before I send it off I will cover the inside with another layer to hide the brads and use my printer to add the saying ** To my special friend so dear, wishing you a cup of holiday cheer**

Supplies: Gina K skinny snowman, Verve Visual Winter Wishes, Bayou blue, Not Quite navy, River Rock, WW card stock, Versa magic Black, Brilliance cloud white, copics, liquid applique, ribbon, brads, ticket corner punch, dimensionals, snowflake, cuttlebug, and stickles.

Start with card stock sized at 6 inches by 10 1/2 inches score at 3 1/2 and 7 put end piece in cutter corner to corner and cut to create pocket use sticky strip to secure the bottom.
