Divine™ Chocolate Christmas Tree Card

Yesterday I shared a tutorial for a bow I put on my Divine™ Chocolate Gift Box Card. Today I want to show you my Divine Chocolate Christmas Tree Card, as the second in my series of cards, which deliver treats along with their holiday greetings!


Like the Gift Box Card, this card features Divine Milk Chocolate Mini Pieces which can be pulled out of the little sleeve wraps on the front of the card, so the chocolates can be enjoyed without ripping the card to shreds! The top chocolate is accessible from both sides, so it doesn't need a pull tab. Also, like the Gift Box Card, this card features the Christmas Tagables stamp set, which you can read all about and order HERE. I used Soft Suede ink, because that is what you will get if you order the Christmas Tagables stamp set in the discounted Pop & Place Holiday Gift Tag Starter Bundle. The background of the card is actually the same string of stamps I mounted in a single line on Clear Block I and used for the Gift Box Card background. And I also made sure to use a foundation for the card that you can order already cut and scored: Crumb Cake Cut & Ready Card Bases.

For the triangle trees shapes, I punched out Gumball Green card stock with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch. The top of the tree is a whole triangle, the middle green parts of the tree are one triangle I cut in half from the bottom, and the tabs that are at the bottom of the tree are each one whole triangle. I simply tucked the other half into the chocolate wrapper (between the paper and foil) and glued the triangle in place so that only half the triangle is sticking out. The patterned paper is from the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack. I tried to avoid using any more supplies--but I needed a tree topper, so I punched one out of Daffodil Delight card stock using the star from the Merry Minis Punch Pack. It is the PERFECT size! (the punch pack also makes a cute non-chocolate card you can see HERE.)

*Disclaimer: I purchased my own Divine chocolates for use on this card, but received some different samples for free after requesting them for project design purposes. I have not been paid for any product placement, my love of Divine chocolates and their Fair Trade practices came before any free samples. You can find Divine Chocolates at either of these places online. HINT: sometimes certain selections of chocolates get sold out at one place, but you can still find them at the other, so bookmark both of these:
