More Warm Thoughts from Lizzie Anne Designs

 As promised, here is another creation from the new release of Lizzie Anne Designs, December Mix "Warmest Thoughts". A really appropriate name for this set when you see the four stamps that I used for this gift card. Don't you just love the marshmallow guy? The sentiment was inspired by a Johnny Mathis Christmas carol. So true as who doesn't love cocoa with marshmallows (or whipped cream...or both!) during the winter? So cozy! For this project, I stamped the cocoa cup with Rich Cocoa (perfect, eh?) Memento ink and colored with my Copics. I added white Liquid Applique to the marshmallows, heat it to puff, flattened them slightly, and added a little toasty color to them. The marshmallow dude was stamped randomly over a DP panel. I had some cute ribbon with the pinks, browns, and mint greens that I had used for coloring. The inside of the card has a little pocket to hold a packet of cocoa mix. (I found these Starbucks ones at Marshall's. They carried a variety of flavors, and I love the simplicity of their packaging.) I added the warm sentiment and another marshmallow dude that I had colored and glittered. This makes a
cute little quickie gift that won't break the bank, but let's the recipient know that you cared enough to create the very best (apologies to Hallmark!). Happy holiday stamping!

Super cute card, it's perfect for the cooler weather we are having!
Do you have a pattern for the inside pocket? I've made cards using it but I'm sure I'm doing it the hard way.

Hugs :)
