Another Reason to Eat Chocolate!

See the gold embossed layer on this card? It’s the wrapper from a piece of dark chocolate from a bag of chocolates we got at Costco! That is the full piece of gold foil – run through in a snowflake Cuttlebug folder.

I matted the gold foil embossed piece on to a piece of teal cardstock. I had come across some old rick-rack from my sewing days that matched perfectly, so I used that and a couple of gold brads. The scalloped circle is punched with a Marvy Uchida punch. I added the gold Christmas tree sticker. Then I used a gold gel pen and drew around the edges, and drew around a circle in the inside. The focal piece is mounted on Pop Dots. I added a couple scored lines with my Scor-Pal, and the sentiment – a dollar stamp from Michael’s.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
