White Christmas - My Craft Spot Stamp Set Debut!

Hey Ya'll,
Welcome to Day 2 of the My Craft Spot Release Party!  Today's stamp set is "White Christmas".  I went a little non-traditional with this one today and had fun playing with unusual colors and something a little different for this card.
 For this card, I used the White Christmas stamp set, My Craft Spot Twine called Lilac, a pocket cut from Cricut, Mug cuts, doily cuts and tag cuts.  I wanted something to go with this cocoa bag, so I made the normal sized half card (well, normal to me.  Hee! Hee!).  I had this one sheet of Christmas paper with pink and the rest is history.  Hee! Hee!  One thing that is wonderful about Kimberly's new sets are there are accent stamps included with the sentiments.  I cut out the mug shape in pink and then used chocolate ink to add snowflakes.  I used the Hot Chocolate Warms the Heart stamp for the tag on top and tied it with some Lilac twine.  It's probably hard to see in the paper, but there are tiny bits of purple here and there.
 I used a new eyelash yarn by Martha Stewart that is glittery.  I put it behind the doily shape and added it to the pocket.  The pocket is just the right size for this gourmet cocoa.  It makes the card front pretty heavy, but what a wonderful thing to do for work Christmas cards?  You get a hand made card and a special gift!
Again, for the inside, these sets come with wonderful, longer sentiments as well, so it's so easy to do up the inside!  I also used the same ink for add a few of the snowflakes from the set.  I added one piece of the metallic eyelash yarn and two pieces of twine to finish it off!
