Holiday Hot Chocolate Recipe

I had lots of fun making this card. I used two new releases ITS A WONDERFUL LIFE and CUP OF COCOA from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.
I also used an individual stamp from CDS called CANDY STICKS. All these individual stamps are under $1.50. They are so cute and fun to use.

Included on my card is a yummy recipe called HOLIDAY HOT CHOCLATE
Instant Hot Chocolate Packet
Vanilla Ice Cream (or your choice)
Whip Cream (I use the squirt kind)
Chocolate sprinkles (optional)
Candy Cane
Make cup of hot chocolate according to packet directions. Top with one scoop of ice cream and then whip cream. Sprinkle with chocolate sprinkles if desired. Add a candy cane to stir with.
This is a family favorite of ours. Yum. Try it.

I paper pieced my cups and sponged edges with distress ink. I layered to get the look I wanted. I decorated with the candy sticks for edges. I used dimensional glaze, and the tip I learned for the candy sticks was to make one long slow line. It gave my stick some roundness like a real candy stick. On the cups, I dimensionals glazed them each three times. Really stands out IRL. The mulitiple layers of glaze makes a big difference. Looks really nice.

Thank you for visiting me today.
