This may look like the real thing, but the following card has NO calories!
Here is a fun shaped card I created, inspired by the "covered in chocolate" greeting in my set. It fits into an A2 envelope and the wrap is made from Paper Temptress Hot Fudge and SU! Brushed Silver, the chocolate bar base was made with Long Rectangle Nestabilities and SU! Chocolate Chip. Wrapper is embossed in silver to look like a very popular candy bar! See how these two different shades of brown paper make it look like the real deal? ;)
I embossed the smaller chocolate sections into my card front with smaller long rectangle dies. To create the wrapper, I just wrapped my Pop Tone Hot Fudge paper and silver paper around my card like you would wrap a real candy bar and adhered at the back. Rip one end of the wrap and crinkle with fingers for realism! (like you had to get to that candy fast!! :)
Here you can see the card pulled out of the wrap and opened to reveal SURPRISE! a chocolate- covered pink center (raspberry? strawberry? pick your pleasure!) This greeting is also embossed in silver, on Paper Temptress Mountain Rose Glimmer paper. I had to sneak out a little "bite" with my SU! scallop punch! ;)
Here it is tipped so you can see the shimmer (er, glimmer!) A wonderful guilt-free indulgence for Valentine's Day! This would be fun as just a playful greeting card or holder* or for a check or GC, too because everything 's better covered with chocolate, right?
Have a great weekend! Her are some "Best Things" peeks from one of my guest designers this month Shannon Bracken if you missed the party! :)
Oh, BTW, now that you've seen the whole set, which sentiments would you INK up first?? ;)
*or maybe an April Fool's gag, leave it out and see how many people try to pick it up!! (snort!!)
