TECC42: Sweet Holiday Wishes gift


I am always on the lookout for great chocolate packaging for my cardstock colors - even better when they match the SU! In Colors {and I like the chocolate} these are Ghirardelli Squares, I believe dark chocolate which is best for you!  I made a cute little purse to house 3 chocolates using my scor-pal.  With that tool, making your own templates the right size you need is such an easy task!  All I had to do was measure the chocolates and determine how wide I needed the sides, used scor-tape to assemble & added my wide riding hood red & vanilla grosgrain ribbon from the SU! mini catalog!  The red cardstock and dp used for my card & the box are in the Christmas Key Ingredients at Taylored Expressions!  The Bling & Dazzle Sateen flowers (ivory) are by Gina K Designs (I thought it would be fun to use them on the side of the main image instead of cardstock!)

Close-up of main image so you can see the sparkle.

Here is a close-up of the chocolate with the wrapping.  

Here is Taylor's sketch so you can play along to be eligible to win cupcake sampler honors and be featured on Taylor's blog next Friday using the next Cupcake Friday sketch. You're not required to use cupcakes on your card, but if you got 'em why not use 'em??  Feel free to create something other than a card if you'd like but please try to keep to the sketch as much as possible.  If you're uploading to Splitcoast, use keyword TECC42.  Leave a comment on Taylor's post with a link to your creation so she can check it out!  Be sure to upload by Monday, November 17th at 10:00 a.m. CST to be eligible for the cupcake sampler honors.  Lastly, be sure to have fun!!
