Newton's Nook – Hot Chocolate Day

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a wonderful week and have enjoyed the last 12 days of Christmas tags. I am leaving commenting open until this evening for those posts. I will choose winners and post them on here and Instagram in the morning. Be sure to check back and see if you’re the luck winner.

And on to today’s fun card. I’m playing along with the Newton’s Nook Inky Paws Challenge – Snow Day! Everyone needs hot chocolate on a snow day, right?!? My daughter and I always go play until we’re too cold, come in and warm up with a cup full and then do it all over again.

I’m so in love with the end result of this card even though I wasn’t sure when I started with the color palette. It’s just so sweet! I started out with the layering plaid stencil and moved on to color and die cut my images from the Cup of Cocoa.

I cut a piece of cardstock and stenciled it with the snowfall stencil and added a piece of purple glitter washi tape to the bottom to ground my images. Then I cut a frame from the Framework set and adhered it. This little panel is popped up on the plaid background with foam tape. Finally, I added my images with foam squares to give them a little dimension.

Last I stamped my sentiment and started on finishing touches. I put glossy accents on the snowman nose and buttons, candycane, Newton’s nose and the dots on the mug. I also added white gel pen accents on all of the mugs.

I’m so pleased with the outcome of this card and can’t wait to share it with someone. I think I’ll tuck a packet of hot cocoa inside for fun!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
