Colour Creations - Early Espresso

Hi Everyone, here we are at week 16 of the colour creations Blog-Hop. This week the colour is Early Espresso, I Love this colour so many things you can use brown on. My card this week is a novelty card. I think this card would be great for any Chocolate lover Male or Female, Young or Young at Heart.

I made this card using a Crumb Cake base card with a Very Vanilla insert. All stamping was done in Early Espresso ink. I cut my little squares to form the chocolate pieces from the Early Espresso in three sizes 1" 3/4" and 1/2" and layered them on top of each other before adding them to another piece of Early Espresso card stock to make it look like a slab of chocolate.

I then ripped a piece of aluminium foil to look like the foil the chocolate comes in before using a piece of D.S.P. from the "Share what you love" collection for the wrapper.

I stamped my sentiments and brushed the edges with Early Espresso ink to finish off my card. unfortunately the stamp set of the cones is now retired but all other items in this project are in the current 2018 -2019 annual catalogue. If you would like to purchase any or all of the products please contact me so that i might help you with your purchase.
I will be posting the tutorial for this card on my Facebook group on Sunday the 16th September why not join my group "Di's Den for Stamping Crafting and Tutorials" hope to see you there.
