Hot Cocoa & Snowfolk Warm My Heart...

Hi Everyone;

Before we know it, winter will be here along with all the fun it brings.  There is no better way, then to have hot chocolate or cocoa when one has been outside in the snow and being creative in bulding snowmen and other snowfolks.

For today's card, I used Snow Yummy and paired it with the Dot Warm Heart sentiment.  I'm not sure if he realizes that he will melt from the warmth of the hot chocolate or cocoa...

The image was coloured with Copic Markers, and I went out of my comfort zone with the blues.  I general use more of the blue greens instead of  the deeper shade blues.  The image was then cut out with a Double Stitched Square die, which was mounted on some mulberry paper and distressed a bit with water, and then mounted on the design paper.  The 2nd piece of cardstock is actually a piece of silver foil.

Now,  I did use the wrong colour twine -- it was supposed to be blue.  As I didn't feel that I could remove it easily without damaging it, I decided to leave it as is.  I used scor pal tape to stick down the layers -- the result of doing something  at night... if anybody has any ideas on how to fix something like this please let me know.

Anyway, the snowflakes and glacier crystal jewels finished off this card.
