Hot Chocolate Christmas Mug

Hello, and Happy Monday! The card I'm sharing today was inspired by a challenge at Splitcoast stampers. You were to pick a photo and make something inspired by that. I picked out a mug with a tree on it, and thought it would be cute to make my card a mug shape too!

To get the handle shape, I did some selective die cutting with the Ovals Framelits, only cutting half of the shape onto my card front. Then cut away the rest on your trimmer. I fiddled for awhile with the shape at the top for the 'hot chocolate', and ended up just using an oval cut in half.

The tree stamp and sentiment is from the Festival of Trees photopolymer stamp set. The red bulbs are a separate stamp that fits perfectly over the top.

Stampin' Up!'s sale and joining offer ends tomorrow for anyone interested in getting a steal!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
