Hot Chocolate Mug Card



Hello everyone! Here is a project that I made for when little one's come to my house during the Holidays! It might only be hot chocolate and a chocolate stir stick, but when it's packaged like this they seem to think it's so much more! LOL!
I made one of these last year if you would like to see that post and where to go for the template, click HERE. I actually made mine using my Gypsy, the mug from Gypsy Wanderings, and some images from George and Basic Shapes.
Hello Kitty was cut from Hello Kitty Greetings at 3.5 inches. The "Merry Christmas" pull tab I made by welding 2 together and folding in half, also cut from HKG. I embossed the front of the card with the Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder and added a ribbon. To finish I added the packet of hot chocolate and a chocolate stir stick.
I am going to enter this into the following challenges
1. My Creative Time Throwback Thursday- Create a project that is KID themed
2. Scrappy Moms Terrific Tuesday- 3D project
3. Getting Cricky Simple Sunday Challenge- Tea time, create a project with a hot beverage theme.
