Scraps Card #13 Wishing You a Warm Nose

Card #13 out of 31...It is amazing how quick it takes scraps to add up.  I am glad this series is helping me "clean out my little pile of scraps."
For card #13, I had enough of the patterend paper to make 2 cards.  I used the Die Cutting Divas Birthday Challenge sketch for my inspiration.  I will be back later with a cupcake card for this challenge but first wanted to get rid of some of my Christmas scraps with this card.  I also got these really cute stickers from my Secret Santa at work! 
The card base measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and is from the Soda Pop cardstock pack by Recollections.  Mat #1 (red) measures 5 1/4" x 4" and is a scrap from The Paper Company that I had lying around.  The green mat measures 3 3/4" x 3 1/2" and I used my Stampin' Up round corner punch.  The strip of patterned scrap paper measures 3 3/4" x 1 1/4" and is adhered to a red border (same as the previous mat) measuring 3 3/4" x 1 1/2".  I also used my Recollections border punch on it.
The cup of cocoa comes from the Winter Frolic cricut cartridge (page 59) and was cut at 3".  I used the mug, mug shift, layer and layer shift.  I used dimensionals as well to make it stand out.
The circles at the bottom which hold the dimensionals stickers were cut from George & Basic Shapes at 1 1/4".
The stickers were a gift from my Secret Santa and are cute cute!  They are from Recollections.
Hope you like my take on the Die Cutting challenge.
