I like Hot Chocolate; especially with marshmallows when it is Winter time. My fav Hot Chocolates are Coldstone, Ghiradelli & Swiss Miss.
For the Hot Chocolate Mug I used Stampin' Up stamp, marker & die. Inked Mug stamp with Memento Bahama Blue, wiped off the area that is the Hot Chocolate part, used an SU Chocolate Chip marker to color the Hot Chocolate, stamped on white cardstock, cut with SU die and did further cutting with a blade cutter that hubby gave me to cut out the inner part of the handle. If I had designed the SU die I would have had it have the inner part as part of the cut out of the die.
Popped up the mug with foam mounting tape. Added Glossy accents to Hot Chocolate part of mug. Added 2 pieces of foam mounting tape with vellum on top for marshmallow look.
For sentiment stamped Hero Arts sentiment on vellum, cut out with SU punch, attached to card with glue dots & added blue gems.
For snowflake edge used Martha Stewart snowflake corner & edge punches.
Attached the white cardstock to blue cardstock.
