The inspiration for this card was Merry Monday Challenge #263.
I did not enter this card but the cocoa in the jar, the wood grain, plaid and branches were the things I pulled from the inspiration photo seen above that was the theme for the challenge. It is a very cool cocoa bar scene.
The background is stamped with a woodgrain background stamp on kraft.
The branches are cut using my Silhouette Cameo. I inked them up with some Oxide Distress ink.
The cocoa jar was stamped and embossed with gold on vellum. I hand cut out the jar. I colored the back of the vellum with a brown Copic to look like cocoa powder. I hand wrote cocoa. I then cut another jar out of white paper to back the jar so the dots on the background didn’t show through. It doesn’t quite look how I thought it would but here it is.
The cup was heat embossed on patterned paper and hand cut. I colored the top part to look like there was cocoa in the cup.
