Warm up with Hot Chocolate!
It's kind of chilly here today and hot chocolate sounds sooooo good right now! This is a cocoa packet I made a while ago. The top flap with the cup and saucer image folds up to show a pocket inside with a packet of hot cocoa tucked into it. The whole thing is tied closed with the pink ribbon that is glued under the layered image piece and wraps around the entire packet.
I stamped this on Chocolate cardstock with Chocolate ink. The cup and saucer outlines are stamped with the Chocolate ink as well, and the solid parts are stamped with Watermelon. I distressed the edges around then used the direct-to-paper technique with my inkpad to add chocolate color around the edges and over the top of the whole piece. It was then layered on a piece of Watermelon cardstock, to which I also added ink around the edges. The bottom edge of the flap was torn to expose the white center of the Chocolate cardstock. The packet itself was random stamped with the steam image in second generation, and the words Hot Chocolate.
Hope all that makes sense....
