Hello! It’s time for the first challenge of February at Christmas Card Throwdown. For the next couple of weeks, we’re asking our participants to make cards using the theme of Christmas and/or wintry drinks.
When I’m cold, I enjoy curling up with a mug of hot cocoa. I like adding lots of mini marshmallows to it and letting them get all soft and partially melted before I swallow them. So that’s the drink I opted to feature on my card. I had the perfect stamp for this, and I decided to pair it with the sketch from a recent (but now closed) CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge. I looked through my designer papers and chose one with peppermints, because sometimes it’s nice to add some peppermint flavoring to the cocoa. I took the colors for the mug and the straw from the designer paper. Fussy cutting around the handle of the mug was kind of tedious, but I think the card ended up cheerily enough:
Since I used markers to color the mug image, I’ll submit this card for the current challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.
Be sure to check out what the rest of the CCT design team has made. Then show us your favorite drink! We’d love it if you joined our challenge. You have until 7:00 pm Eastern time Friday, February 17 to link your card at the CCT site. Thanks for stopping by today!
