Here is a mini card 3 x 3 be sure to tuck this in with your friends favorite candy, because your the sweetest! It's nice to order the mini envelopes from stampin up or just make your own.
Cardstock: Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Inks: Chocolate Chip
Markers: Real Red, Chocolate Chip
Stamp Set: Eat Chocolate 122006(clear set)
Punches: Large Designer Label, Scallop Edge
Extras: Paper piercing tool, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds
Ribbon: 1/8 taffeta ribbon.
1. Cut your base card 3 x 6. Fold. I always stamp and then punch because I feel I can center things better that way, but you can punch 1 whisper white and 1 chocolate chip designer label.
2. I cut the chocolate chip punch in half horizontally. Tape it behind the whisper white. Then tape it to your card.
3. Now since the scallop edge is hard to work with if you have a small piece of paper I cut it 2 3/4 x 2 and scallop 1 edge. Then using your paper piercing tool pierce the center of each scallop.
4. When cutting your chocolate chip I suggest cutting a piece of paper 2 3/4 x maybe 3 so you can turn it to cut it down to 1 inch x 2 3/4. I just have better control of smaller cuts having paper to hold on to. My suggestions only if you can get a smaller cut using less paper do that. as long as it's final measurement is 2 3/4 x 1.
5. Tie your ribbon around the chocolate chip and tape down just above the scallop edge. I did need to trim the white straight edge even with the chocolate chip edge.
6. Stamp your candy piece again using your marker instead of the ink pad. Color in the hearts with the smaller end of your Real Red marker, cut it out and brush with crystal effects. You can either leave it shiny or sprinkle with dazzling diamonds carefully not to dump just sprinkle. Let dry for a few minutes and using a dimensional pop it over the one already on your label. *Just mentioning when you punched the greeting out you cut some of the candy off and this will be in place going over the top on the label punch. Hope you like this post. Thanks for stopping! Brenda
