Our first challenge is an anything goes challenge!
I created this winter card for my first challenge as a Whimsical DT member:
Hot chocolate is one of my FAVORITE parts about winter... given that I'm a complete wuss when it comes to the cold. Here in the Midwest are winters are usually pretty chilly, with 20-30 degree temps every day, if not colder. What better way to warm up then with a steaming mug of hot chocolate?
None of the Cricut carts I own had a die cut hot chocolate.. but thankfully Cricut Craft Room was offering the Don Juan cartridge for free this week, and that cart just happened to have this cute little mug! How lucky was that?! I used some Frosted Lace Stickles to give it some steam and added the heart on the mug as an accent to match the sentiment. :)
The 'Cocoa Warms the Heart' sentiment came from the Whimsical Designs "Snow Much Fun" stamp set, which can be purchased here.
Here's a complete list of materials used to create this card:
- Solid blue and white cardstock by Recollections
- All patterned papers by Recollections
- Don Juan cartridge (hot chocolate cut at 2.5")
- Elegant Edges cartridge (circle accent cut at 3")
- Frosted Lace Stickles
- Red pearls from Miriam's Crafting Supplies
- White Opal Liquid Pearls
- Red ink
- "Snow Much Fun" stamp set
- Red and white polka dot ribbon from my stash
