For this card I used mostly 
Paper Sweeties products.

No double/triple inking and pumping on the MISTI for me!
I used 

I started with red cardstock
Embossed the paper with the cable knit folder.
Next I used the Scalloped Circle Frame Dies
 from PS to cut my pattern paper..
For the coffee cup, I stamped and heat embossed it with white ink and powder.
Fussy cut it out (I don't have the dies :(  ~
Stamped the peppermint stick (dies make life so much easier...buy the dies) 
Yes, I fussy cut it, then I cut a tiny slit in the cocoa for the stick to slide through.
I did the same with the cupcake  (stamped/colored/fussy cut)
I used white seam binding and Sweet Borders,
 Sweet Cuts/ Circle Scallop Frames,
Sweet Cuts/ Happy
