First off, I would like to share a quick little Christmas project that I have made. I just love having some extra special packaging made ahead for little Christmas treats during December.
I made this hot cocoa packet with SVG files from the Cup of Cocoa and Tea set from My Scrap Chick. I didn't do much to alter the original files, just cut them from scrap paper and embossed the snowflake and whipped cream. A standard sized hot cocoa packet slips right in behind the removable cocoa insert, which you can use to add your greeting.
I also completed another Christmas Card for my stash, using the same concept as the rest of my cards for the week. (I don't know about you, but I am already bored with posting the same style of card five days in a row. I am going to start mixing it up! It's hard enough to stay awake during the long cold winter months with out being bored by our hobbies, right?)
I used foam to mount the embossed panels, and the holly. The text was printed prior to embossing and cutting the panels. I colored the holly using Distress Inks, and added the berries with Distress Stickles.
Here is the inside:
I'll be back soon with more cards to share. (and more variety, too!)
