I Love Chocolate

The Craft Barn weekly challenge theme is "something sweet and sugary" so this theme is just begging for a chocolate offering. I decided to try and keep it simple, mainly using paper crafting although some stamps are used for the sentiments on this card.


Marianne Designs : COL1366 Chocolate is the Answer Die & Stamp Set 
Marianne Designs : COL 1367 Box of Chocolates Die & Stamp set
Spellbinders Nestabilities : Labels Four
My Minds Eye : Paris & Co paper
Ranger : Coffee Archival Ink  
Tim Holtz Distress Ink : Vintage Photo

The paper bow was made using a We R Memory Keepers envelope board. This card is big, at 7 inches by 7 inches that is a bigger card than I would usually make but where chocolate is concerned, I reckon big is good.


  1. Wonderful card Julia. Love the color combo. Great dies. You know, the little chocolates at the bottom remind me of Walnut Whips. I don't know whether you can still get those in the UK. I could just eat one now!! Thank you for you visit.

    1. We can still get walnut whips here in the UK. I haven't had one in years but now you mention them, I could eat one right now too!

  2. Yummy card, I haven't seen Walnut Whips for ages. Thank you for joining in The Craft Barn Challenge.
