Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with Paper Sweeties!

Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with Paper Sweeties!


It’s that time again, friends!  I’m excited to share a little something ‘sweet’ with y’all today for the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop!


This cutie patootie card was simple to whip up.  CAS at this time of the year works for me, how about you?


I die cut the cocoa mug from red glitter paper, die cut the steam from white cardstock, stamped and die cut the peppermint stick and stamped the sentiment.  I adhered all die cut pieces to the card base, added some sparkly sequins and then faux stitching around the edges of the card base.  Easy peesy!


To go along with the cocoa card, I whipped up a little sweet treat of Peppermint Ghirardelli hot cocoa packets wrapped with some beautiful tulle and then created a little tag and holiday nosegay!  For the tag, I die cut the mitten twice, once with cardstock and once with felt for the cuff.  I stamped the ‘cocoa’ sentiment, die cut it and then adhered to the mitten using a foam dot.  I stamped the ‘yes please’ sentiment directly onto the mitten base and then added some sparkly sequins to tie the gift to the card.


I tied the mitten tag onto the tulle bow using button twine and then added a candy cane and some fun jingle bells!  In my world, every holiday project ‘needs’ candy canes and jingle bells!!


I sent this sweet treat to my son and his girlfriend … I’ve been doing a secret Santa for them all month long in December since they have both just started new jobs and can’t make it home for the holiday this year.  I thought receiving a little something fun in the mail every couple of days leading up to Christmas would be fun for them!  Here are the goodies I used from Paper Sweeties to make this adorable little set:
