Chocolate Valentines and Birthdays!
Chocolate..Valentine's Day-they just go hand in hand!
I was recently asked by Scrapbook Place to help come up with a theme
card for our blog featuring one of the 4 food groups, CHOCOLATE. I had
just come across some Delicious, rich, Chocolate colored papers by Basic
Grey called Bittersweet and wanted to try a new design for me-the Pop
Up Heart. After much cutting, bending, creasing I've got the most
amazing card, I think! The front is in browns and pinks and with an
intricate pattern. I randomly glazed the swirls-makes it look like
melted chocolate! Rich brown heavy lace is offset with rose dew drops;
pink flowers and a flourish peak your interest with what's INSIDE: a
coordinating pink and brown paper and this gorgeous, pink Martha Stewart
Glittered heart that fully extends. To help this stand up, I used a
light poster board but really think that I could've used a heavy Bazzil
card stock and it would've been fine. A friend of ours asked me to do a
card for his wife for Valentine's Day, which is also her birthday so I
think this will be well received. Thanks for looking!
