When I first saw pictures of Karen Burniston's new Journey collection of Sizzix cutters, I really loved the look of this 'Mug & Heart, 3-D' Pop 'n Cuts insert... it is so much fun!
We aren't tea or coffee drinkers, so I immediately thought of a hot chocolate themed card. I used the new Square Card Pop 'n Cuts base die, and layered the fancy edge on it a couple of times.
For the mug part itself, I added the little hearts from the new 'Flower & Heart' Magnetic die set (which has got to be one of my favourite ever dies!!) I love how there is an opening in the mug insert, which allows you to add lots of the smaller magnetic Movers and Shapers dies to the design of the mug!
I used some adhesive foam stuff (I think it's for lining drawers with, or something) to cut mini marshmallows from, and then added some glittery steam wisps, also from the 'Flower & Heart' magnetic set.
The sentiments I printed from the computer, and the chocolatey themed paper is from K&Co 'cutNpaste'.
I did a simple design on the front of the card (and even a little bit on the back! - that is a first for me!) The pink scrolly pieces are from Karen's new 'Edge & Scroll' Bigz die, and are going to make decorating the new Square Pop 'n Cuts base card really easy.
I made a little pocket on the front too, to hold a sachet of hot chocolate - a nice little extra for someone feeling a bit under the weather. The gift tag I cut from the new 'Wavy Labels' Framelits, and punched a whole for some twine, and added a heart cut from the 'Flower & Heart' magnetic die.
I made the pocket by scoring some card as follows, and making a little bottom piece, and sticking it all together with my Scotch ATG tape runner. The card is quite bulky, but easy enough to post in a padded envelope.
