Hot Chocolate for Santa and Rudolph: A Pocket Card with a twist!
Hello, Ribbon lovers! Have you ever wondered why Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer has such a very shiny nose? Me, too. But I think I have cracked the mystery: he was COLD! I mean, that’s what happens to my nose when I get too cold! To remedy the situation, I whipped up a little Christmas card with some Hot Chocolate for Santa and Rudolph. Oh what fun!
This 5×7 top fold card is made with Authentique’s fabulous Retro Christmas collection. To really make it shine, I created a layered bow with Black Plaid Ribbon, Snowflakes on Red Satin Ribbon and Gold Metallic String. I even tossed in a candy cane in case Santa’s needs to freshen his breath! Where’s the hot chocolate for Santa and Rudolph, you ask? Read on!
- Cut a piece of patterned paper about 1.25″ wide x 6.75″ wide.
- Mat on black cardstock
- Glue just the end pieces on either side.
Now you can just slip your packet of cocoa behind the belly band. I added a sticker sentiment from the collection. Oh, and just so you know, I did a taste test on the hot chocolate to make sure it meets Santa’s high standards and it passed with flying colors.
Inside Pocket Number 2
The bottom half of the card sports a standard pocket, stuffed to the max with cute little tags from the collection. I topped each of these with more Red Snowflake Satin, a silvertone Christmas charm and an ivory burlap string bow.
The mini envelope is made with one of Tammy Tutterow’s fabulous dies. I love that this one has a window in it that is just exactly the right size for an itty bitty Ghiradelli chocolate. how fun is that? Of course, you could tuck in a gift card if you wanted to. I’ve heard that Santa is very fond of Starbucks.
This would make such a great gift card for the holidays. If you’re looking for a fun way to present a gift card, I think this pretty much fills the bill.
Thanks for stopping by!
