Thank You Card ~ A Mug of Cocoa (post #1)

It is time for another release challenge over at Flourishes.
When I saw this photo inspiration I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
I looked for mug cuts in my Cricut collection so I could use some pretty Flourish to decorate them.
First I cut the mug from kraft card stock.
Next I stamped the deer on dark brown and trimmed it to fit the mug.
The mug needed a little something to dress it up so I hand cut this zig zag border using my pinking scissors.
I wanted it to appear the mug was full of yummy hot cocoa so of course it needed some fluffy marshmallows.
I cut the marshmallows by hand and sponged their edges.
The sentiment in the Snow Scenes stamp set is just perfect for this sweet mug of goodness.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Deer & sentiment from the Snow Scenes stamp set from Flourishes.
*Mug cut at 5 in. from the Cricut Everyday Pop Up Cards cartridge.
*Marshmallows and other deco cut by hand.
*Zig zag cuts using Fiskars pinking scissors
*Stazon Timber Brown stamp pad.

May your day always be filled with love.
