Cocoa Mug Card with Money Holder Tag Insert - The Twelve Days of Christmas, Day 1 with My Creative Time

Welcome to Day 1 of The Twelve Days of Christmas with MCT!  Today is the first day of 2 weeks of wonderful Holiday projects!  We hope we are able to inspire you with some of our holiday projects and ideas.
Today I made a mug shaped card.  The shape I traced from a template I found at the Scrapbook Expo a few months ago.  I did a few modifications to make a slip in pocket to hold a tag with "cash" attached.
I used the XL and XL Stitched Label dies and the Lowercase Fun dies to put on the front of the mug.  I cut the letters out of PTI coasters first, then I cut paper and covered the coasters.
 
  The "whipped cream" on top of the hot chocolate is actually the cloud die from the Fly Away with Me dies.  The bottom half is a tag I made using Just Tags dies.  The stocking I paper pieced is from Warm Holiday Fun stamp set. I put Diamond Dust on the cloud to look like sugar.
 
The twenty is attached to the back of the slip in tag with a small glue dot.  I used my glue gun to attach the bow and button securely.
 
 
Supplies I Used:
This and That Christmas  -  Echo Park
Ripe Avocado, Dark Chocolate and Fine Linen Card Stock,
Coaster  -  Papertrey Ink
Seam Binding Ribbon  -  Liz's Paper Loft Boutique
Button  -  Vintage Trinkets, Maya Road
Festive Berries, Peeled Paint and Tea Dye Distress Inks
Glossy Accents and Diamond Dust
Cuttlebug Swirls Embossing Folder
 

HUGE GIVEAWAY ALERT!
Okay, since it's Christmas, Emma decided to give away TWELVE of her FAVORITE things to ONE LUCKY person! She will announce one of the prizes for each day in her video! So by the 12th day, you will see ALL 12 items that ONE lucky person will be receiving! All you have to do is leave your comments each day! It's that simple! ALSO, **VERY IMPORTANT** Please leave your contact information so we can contact you "IF" YOU are the lucky winner!

I hoped you enjoyed my project for the 1st Day of Christmas.  I will be back with more projects during these 12 days!  Have a wonderful start to December!
Love and Hugs,
Cathryn :)
