In The Cat House

Hello.  Welcome.  Yesterday was National Cocoa Day so I decided to make a card and small hot chocolatey gift in one.  

I made a card with a pocket for a hot chocolate sachet.  The stamp is from Impression Obsession

I wanted it a bit rustic so I added a panel of card to my card base that I had covered with some hessian.  I glued the panel along each side and the bottom, leaving the top open.

I stamped Impression Obsession G145 using blue ink on kraft card and cut with an oval stitched die.  I added some Wow! white puff powder and a piece of twine which I tied in a bow.  Hmmmm, hot chocolate by post.  Nam nam.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
