Merry Monday #110

It's time for another challenge over at Merry Monday.
This week the challenge is to use Christmas inspired
food on your Christmas project.

I instantly thought of hot chocolate as it's the only time
of year that I drink it.  A nice, big, steaming mug of hot chocolate 
after hours in the snow building a snowman is the perfect way
to warm up.

This card actually took me a lot longer to create than you 
would think. I played with a lot of different ideas for the card base
but in the end I decided that CAS was the way to go. 

Popping up the mugs of hot chocolate with dimensionals
was all I needed to make me feel this card was done.

card stock: whisper white, early espresso
dsp: be of good cheer, season of style
stamp sets: hot hot hot (fresh squeezed stamps),
     warmth and wonder
ink: early espresso

Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!
