TWO PAPER DIVAS CARD / Chocolate says "I Love You" 2015
Welcome to another TWO PAPER DIVA CARD but this time about "Chocolate". Oooh! Do we love Chocolate........It is a really simple card but I wanted the Sentiments to stand out not ribbon and paper!! Using a Solar White card stock, I first scored the three lines at different lengths down the right side of a left side folded card (this is an A2 card). I then stamped the two front Sentiments in Early Espresso (Brown) ink by Stampin' Up and what you do not see is the inside Sentiment "Give Me Chocolate please .....
I love to use my "inches" when I can and in this case I used two different sizes. These are basically, for those who do not know, pieces of the matting that framers use. The material is usually just scraps and is so often thrown away at a frame shop. Make friends with the owner and trade cards for him or her to make "inchies" in all sizes for you. I have had some with straight sides and some with beveled. These are straight on the card.
I stamped the two cupcakes in the Early Espresso ink and then I used marking pens in Early Espresso and Close to Cocoa to just color the cake and icing. Once dry, I used my clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen on the Cake, Icing and the Paper Wrapper. I think that I went over it twice to give it a real glittery look ..... hard to see except in a bright light. I popped up the small inchie but used score tape on the larger inchie to securely hold these. Next I added the silver sequins on the front and three of them on the inside. For the centers of these sequins I used Silver Stickles .....it helps to finish the look - no hole!!
The "Really?" of the Sentiments on the front is from the TWO PAPER DIVA clear stamp set "Sassy Sayings" and the other two Sentiments are from the clear stamp set "It's all about Chocolate".
I am currently working on cards for two classes this next Tuesday my morning and afternoon classes. Some cute cards are being created and I hope to get them photographed and added to my BLOG ..... so stay tuned!! Happy 2015!!!
