The word chocolate can be a noun or adjective. This chocolate is so luscious. The cake has chocolatey frosting. I love dark chocolate! Just a few ways the word can be used to convey meaning.
My More Than Chocolate hand stamped greeting card will make you want to seek out your nearest chocolatier shop. A local shop, Chocolate Caper, just opened a second location in my town. Their chocolate is luscious. Another favorite is Gail Ambrosius on Atwood Ave. I love Gail’s dark chocolate with caramel inside! Chocolaterian has yummy chocolatey frosting on their Badger Bites.
My card today was inspired Twila Davis’ Sale-A-Bration blog hop entry. See her star design here with the spiral inside. If you missed our hop with 15 stops, hop along here.
I had window sheets in stock and thought this material would make a good spiral base. So I used the largest circle framelit from the Layering Circles collection to cut a circle of window sheet. I used a paper snips to custom cut the spiral.
The stamped chocolate pieces helped with reducing the scrap pile so that is a bonus! Each mini chocolate is attached to the window sheet spiral with a glue dot. I used the 1 inch circle punch to punch whisper white. This circle was used to cover up the adhesive keeping the spiral attached to the inside of the card directly below the score line. I cleverly covered the glue dot attaching the other end of spiral to the top of the card with another stamped mini chocolate.
inside of the card…
outside of the card…The gold doilie just retired so hopefully you still have a few in your stash.
Supplies used…You can see my work surface which is a large desk blotter. I turn the calendar pages over after the month is done and use it to pre-clean my stamps before I clean them with my stampin scrub and stampin mist. If you have been following my CASEing series, you will see the doggie test run towards the bottom and then faint images from pre-cleaning stamps in the corners.
Our valentine designer series paper this year is Painted with Love Specialty. It features gold throughout the collection with melon mambo, rich razzleberry and peek-a-book peach combinations. A nice change from real red images.
