Deedee's Digis - Warm Wishes Cocoa Bear

Today I am the Guest Designer at Deedee's Digi's. I have something fun to show you. This card has been created with a fun loving little bear holding her little cup of Cocoa. You can purchase this Digital image here. I decided to use some fun papers that would have different colors of brown for the color of Hot Chocolate! Yummy!!! I only wanted bright color on the bear. You can't see it in my pictures, but I glimmer misted the paper and it looks awesome.

The front of this card is as follows:
Paper-DCWV Natural Stack
Punches - Martha Stewart Deep Edge Double Loop, Martha Stewart Hot Cocoa embossing punch, Martha Stewart Branch punch
Spellbinders Nestibilities-Large Scalloped Squares, Large Scalloped Ovals, Large Ovals, Fancy Tags
Accessories-Prima Roses, Ribbon, Stickles, Glimmer Mist

Now this is where the fun part comes in. See that pocket on the inside of this card. Well, it is a cup of Cocoa. Yes, that's right - it slips right out of the pocket and here it is!

Isn't this cute. It is holding a packet of Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa Mix. If you would like to make this cup to hold your Cocoa packet, I have a tutorial on my blog here with directions qne how to make your template. Just for a reference, I used the Sizzx Fancy Flourish die cuts on the inside of the card and on this cup.

And one last picture. This is the card with the envelope box I made. My card is 6 x 6. I tried my card inside a regular 6 x 6 envelop that I make with my "Enveloper" and it will fit with the Cup of Cocoa in the card. I did have to make the envelope box for this card because my flowers are what made this card to chunky for a regular envelope.

Thanks for stopping by today. Just wanted to show you a fun way to use this cute image. What a wonderful way to share a small gift for someone special in your life. Let me know what you think!

Oh my! Carol, this is just amazing! I can't believe the amount of detail and work you put into your cards, there are always so many gorgeous details to swoon over! I love the inside and the envelope too, they are works of art in themselves. Love the hot cocoa sachet idea too!

WOW, Carol! This is truly incredible! I'm just slack-jawed over all the yummy details you put into this. I love how bright and cheery the bear is against the warm and cozy background, and the cocoa packet pocket is just too much. Such a beautiful gift idea -- thanks so much for the inspiration! :-)
