Someone very very dear to us started chemo yesterday and we're planning on stopping by her place later this evening to give her a hug. What she'd really like is a bottle of wine, but I suspect her doctor will be none too pleased if we did that. So, I'm taking the next best thing - chocolate! To house this Swiss sensation, I made a "fat" card (or "phat card" 'cause I'm hip and trendy that way!). It looks like a card from the outside, but has a pouch on the inside for goodies. For this project, I'm pairing the sketch from Waltzing Mouse #111 and with colours from CR8FN #61.
I apologise for the number of pics... but I just couldn't decide which ones to leave out... so I threw the whole lot it. Anyway, it will give you an idea of how I made my phat card ... (that's my excuse!)
|For my background, I stamped that damask-ish pattern using a stamp from the Seasons of Love set on some textured layering CS from the Bohemian collection.|
|The card measures 7" x 3.25" and ...|
|... is half an inch thick.|
|The sentiment is from WMS Compact Semtiments 2 with Memento Tuxedo Black. For the label I used WMS Very Vintage Labels 18 and VersaMagic Chalk Ink. All of the action took place on cream CS.|
|Here's a close up of the stamped background. For embellishments I used cream lace and pearls.|
|Here's a quick peak of the inside. I layered it for a more finished look.|
|The card is actually quite sturdy and securely holds the candy bar.|
|I layered the back as well ... didn't like it undone.|
Dies: Spellbinders Labels 18 S4-310
