Another steaming cup of cocoa

Back to Christmas now, with another CASEd sample using the Scentsational Season bundle. It’s another one cased from Jill Hilliard – looks like I’ll be visiting her blog a lot for ideas, LOL!

This would be a great card for a Make & Take – minus a button perhaps. Yes, yes I know you all think I’m tight but really, as a demonstrator, you do have to keep an eye on costs, both for you and for your customers.

The mug and steam are die-cut. The steam has a rounded base but I cut a slit in the mug and poked it through. Couldn’t find a craft knife so used my Stampin’ Snips. Ssssh, don’t tell anyone!

The little flags of paper are from the Festival of Prints stack. I took this along to my Autumn/Winter catty launch and it proved really popular. It’s so handy at 4½” x 6½” and you get loads of different patterns.

Stamps: Scentsational Season, Polar Party
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Paper: Festival of Prints
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
Accessories: Big Shot, Holiday Collection framelits, Regals buttons, Neutrals buttons, scallop dotted ribbon – Old Olive
