This is my second post for today! For my first post please scroll down or click here!
Good afternoon! We have a fun photo to inspire you this week!
And here’s what I created:
I had to go a slightly different route for my card because I recently destashed all of my candy stamps! Oops. So I decided to use the peppermint candies to create my favorite Christmas drink: peppermint hot chocolate! I stamped the striped background stamp with red pigment ink and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I die-cut the mug from red cardstock, the cocoa from brown cardstock, and the whipped cream from white cardstock and added a little shading with copic markers. I stamped the peppermints with red ink and then added a layer of glossy accents. In retrospect, I should have used red pigment ink and clear embossing powder because the red dye ink bled slightly but hopefully it’s not too noticeable. I stamped the sentiment with red pigment ink and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I adhered the mug together and mounted it on the red striped background!
And now it’s your turn to get crafty! We provide an inspiration palette or photo each week but really, the only rule is that you create a holiday card! For even more inspiration, check out what the rest of the Christmas Card Challenges design team has created!
