Like a Box of Chocolates

Hello there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I was cleaning out a notebook and found a page I'd saved from a Paper Craft Magazine.

There was a card that had caught my eye and I'd kept that page so I could CASE it.

I decided it would be perfect for Joanna's Inchie Challenge at CAS Mix Up.

I stamped the crosshatch design on a strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock and
heat embossed it.  My one inch square punch assured that my pieces were
exactly one inch.  A corner rounder punch gave the pieces a more realistic look.

The other two pieces were punched out and dry embossed.  Then I sponged a little
copper Delicata ink on the ridges.

The Sending is three die cut layers.

I think I'll go see if I can find a piece of real chocolate.

Oh, and the challenge is open until the 24th.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Guess what I did before writing this, Bonnie. I went to get some chocolate! Now I'm writing this while having a piece. ;-P
Your chocolate inchies card looks so cute and the sentiment is perfect. The white heat-embossing and the sponging with copper ink make the chocolate look so realistic and yummy!

What a clever way to do these chocolates! I have a friend who is a chocoholic so am going to CASE every "inch" of this for her next card.

Pat said...

How yummy Bonnie, the perfect thing to make using inchies and especially with the rounded corners. I like my chocolates with some caramel in the middle I love the large die cut with the stamped part to make that great sentiment too. x
