Today is World Chocolate Day and what better way to celebrate than with a card in its honour!!!
I LOVE chocolate, no I mean I REALLY LOVE and this card is probably going to stay in my stash as I really love it also!!!
There is a lot of work in this card, in that there are lots of little pieces to cut and glue together. You will need some patience for this one if you are to make it!
The black card base is A5 (21cm x 14.8cm) scored in the centre at 10.5cm.
Sweet Sugarplum layer is 10cm x 14.3cm (sponge the edges)
Black layer is 9cm x 13.3cm
12 x Chocolate pieces (chocolate chip cardstock) are 2cm x 2.5cm (sponge edges) & top layer is 1.5cm x 2cm (sponge edges then embossed with Floral Affection Embossing folder). Glue each piece down with Tombo Multipurpose glue.
Make sure you do sponge the edges of all the cardstock as it gives it the depth needed to make it look real. Yes, it is a lot of work but how cool is it though?
Cut a piece of DSP to 11cm x 8cm. At each side I folded it over and glued to the back so the block actually looks wrapped.On the right side it is cut at 6cm up to the left side to get that angle. Before gluing it down, add some aluminium foil.
How beautiful is this colour combination too? I love the Sweet Sugarplum, Chocolate Chip and Black together.
I even added another piece of chocolate to the bottom right inside of the card and the envelope (although I didn’t take photos of these, oops!)
What do you think? Will you give it a try?
