This is my third and final card for the CAS Winter Design Team Challenges. I'm so honored to be in the top 10!
For this challenge, Denise has asked us to show her something we'd eat or drink at her holiday movie party. Who doesn't love chocolate? There are always lots of chocolates around at Christmas time. A little girl, many years ago would take a chocolate out of the box, take a bite and then put it back. Let's just say she was a somewhat finicky eater, even when it came to chocolate! Needless to say, her parents weren't thrilled with this...LOL! And to protect the innocent, I will NOT be revealing this little girl's name...and will leave it up to your imagination.
OK...on to the card. The card base is a standard A2 in SU! Early Espresso. Next comes a layer of white card stock that has a computer generated sentiment and some dry embossing.
The chocolates were made with a Sizzix die called Chocolates...how very appropriate right? This die allows you to pull apart different sections and color them as you wish. So I matched the little squiggles on the top with the center and then around each center is a layer that looks like a caramel filling. I cut the main chocolate twice for each and then glued all the little parts onto this backing for stability. Then, and it's really hard to see in the photo, each chocolate has been covered with Ranger Glossy Accents. They were attached to the card with glue dots.
Here's what I used:
Paper: SU! Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Peach Parfait, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron and Georgia Pacific White
All the other stuff: Big Shot Pro, Tim Holtz Sizzix Texture Fades Embossing Folders 4PK - Christmas Background & Borders Set, Sizzix Chocolates (sorry it's an old die that came in a set and that's all the info I have), Ranger Glossy Accents, computer and printer for sentiment, ATG and glue dots

Oh I love love love this Lee-Anne. Hee Hee........confession time........I would use my finger nail to peak in the chocolate then move the chocolate back on the underside. Sneaky huh? Thanks for the memory. Love this card.

LOL! I think we're probably all guilty of peeking one way or another whether we would ever admit it or not! :) I'm always so grateful when a box of chocolates contains a diagram showing which chocolate is which!
I love the embossed snowflakes that you added to the corners! A very nice holiday/winter touch!

Perfect dies and embossed bg for your holiday party card; you never know what kids will do. We had a group of teens over once and one of our little ones dunked their fist right into the guacamole! Needless to say those teens wouldn't touch the dip after that!

Oh Lee-Anne this is absolutely ingenious! Who hasn't had a box of chocolates that haven't been bitten into, to see what's inside, only to go yuk and put them back in the box!!! Love how you put them with snowflakes too. Wonderful, wonderful. Good luck!
