Eat Chocolate or Else!

I made this card a while back and thought, why haven't I shared it with you guys yet?  Sometimes I made pretty things and they end up underneath other things so here it finally is!  Here's what I did: Chocolate Chip Card base, Crumb Cake layer embossed with the Finial Press embossing folder, then sponged over with Chocolate Chip ink on a sponge.  I stamped the image, I love these cute little chocolates! onto Crumb Cake cardstock with Chocolate Chip ink and punched it out with the Decorative Label punch.  I punched a few of the Decorative Labels out of Chocolate Chip cardstock and layered that underneath the original punched out image. I used the Scallop Trim border punch to punch both sides of the next layer of Chocolate Chip cardstock for a pretty lace look. Finally I wrapped and tied the bow with 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon that was colored Crumb Cake and put on a beautiful Antique Brad to finish it off!  I hope you have a sweet day! ~Charlotte

Square Lattice Shamrock card

This was quick and easy card to make today! First I punched out 14 small hearts in Garden Green cardstock, 2 of those were used for stem pieces. I stamped the Lucky Shamrock stamp from the 2011 Occasions Mini catalog with Garden Green Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with the 1 3/4" Circle punch and layered it on a 2 3/8" Scallop circle punch. I used snail to adhere it to the Whisper White and ran it through my Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  This smashes everything into a beautiful thin layer, a really cool effect! Then I adhered it onto a Garden Green card base.  It took less than 5 minutes to make!
