This adorable Cocoa Mug Christmas card really wins the award for CLEVERNESS!! Cindee showed me this fantastic tip about die cutting a letter C and adding it to the die cut coffee cup to make a fun cocoa mug!! Read on to see what I mean!
These fun Christmas Cheer Cocoa Mug cards were 2 designs I made for customer thank you cards and for swap cards that I took to Salt Lake City for the Stampin' Up! OnStage Convention recently!! I love them both. The difference in the 2 cards is the Cherry Cobbler Pattern for the mug and the Soft Sky blue background paper.
To make the cocoa mug, simply die cut a letter C from the Large Letter framelits and tuck it behind the die cut coffee cup, and voila, a fun cocoa mug!!
I added clear glittery Wink of Stella to the snowflakes and the whipped cream die cuts. The glitter is hard to see on the cards in the photos, but it looks pretty cute in person! The whipped cream stamp is found in the Coffee Cafe stamp set.
This is how I prepare my project when I'm creating lots of customer thank yous, Luv 2 Stamp group cards, or swaps. I get all the parts ready, organize them on my crafting desk, then start assembling.
I used 4 different Stampin' Up! designer paper packs for these cards.
"Christmas Cheer" was stamped onto a piece of Wood Textures designer paper
The cocoa mugs are die cut from 2 patterns in the Be Merry designer paper pack.
The patterned blue backgrounds are from these 2 designer papers. One from Bundle of Love and the other from Coffee Break!
The card base is a Stampin' Up! thick Whisper White note card. The Soft Sky designer paper pieces are 3" x 5" and the Wood Textures paper is 2" x 3".
The coffee cup die cut is found in the Coffee Cups Framelit set, the C is from the Large Letters framelits, and the snowflake is found in the Trim your Stocking framelit set. I added some clear Faceted Gems to about 1/2 of the cards I made. All supplies are listed below for you shopping convenience.
