chocolate flowers

I hope you are having a great weekend. We had a mostly beautiful day, just a short thunderstorm late this afternoon and then the sun came back out and there was a rainbow.

Did that title get your attention? Would those be great? Well, today I have some chocolate flowers to show you. But... it's not what you think. They are made from designer paper that is looks like chocolate frosting - YUM!

This is the card that I made for my sweet DH for father's day. It was a very easy and fast card. The front of the card is vanilla with 1" strips of dp glued along all 4 sides. Then I stamped the sentiment and two chocolate chips in the center and pierced around the block and around the chocolate chips. That's glued to the chocolate chip card base. DONE!

Now the inside of the card is a bit more complicated, but still very easy. I started by cutting a 12" piece of designer paper into 4" squares. You use 7 of them for the flowers. Here is a tutorial. I used my large oval punch to punch off one end of the folded squares to form the petals. This helped to make them even.

stamps: sentiment - all year cheer II (SU), chocolate chip (?)
ink: chocolate chip
paper: chocolate chip, very vanilla, dp (Michael's)
other: piercing tool, large oval punch

Thanks for stopping by.

Wow how beautiful and YUMMY to boot! :) CHF has scented embossing powder that smells like chocolate that you could use a versamarker and edge the flowers with it!!!
