Guest Designer: Veronica

Hey there, My Creative Time Fans! Veronica here, from VK Create filling in for Emma today. Before I get to my project today, I want to remind you that STARTING TODAY, you can shop at the My Creative Time Online Store and SAVE 20% off your entire order using code: THANKU

This Customer Appreciation Sale is only good until Sunday, July 22nd, so be sure to get your orders in this weekend!

My project today is a sweet little 4x4 card for all the chocolate lovers out there. Now, you might be thinking, Hot chocolate? Who drinks hot chocolate this time of year? Who? THIS GIRL!

I'm not much of a coffee person (though I do enjoy coffee-flavored ice cream and frappucinos!). Sometimes, when I feel the need to unwind in the evening, I grab for a nice tall mug of hot chocolate. Mmm...

After cutting my card base, I ran it through my Big Shot with one of the frames from the Stampin' Up! Designer Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folders Set. I then layered my blue patterned paper (which I cut into a square frame) on top of the card base. The adorable sentiment and hot chocolate mug are from the Do The Cocoa Motion Stamp Set.

I shaded the cocoa mug with my Copics and added Marvy Uchida Liquid Applique to the foam spilling out of the top.

Liquid Applique comes in a tube (similar to a glue pen). After applying it to my project, I heated it with my heat tool and it puffed up to look like foam. This product is great for fur, frosting, snow and whipped cream!

I created the chocolate bar on my own using my paper trimmer and a black fine point marker for the corner marks. After tying my cute polka dot ribbon around the card, it was good to go!

I hope you were inspired!
