Divine™ Chocolate Gift Box Card

I've had this idea on the back burner for weeks, and I think I'll just go ahead and share the card with you. This card holds 4 Divine Milk Chocolate Mini Pieces on the front. Each chocolate has its own pull tab, so you can pull it out for nomming, and the patterned paper squares on the front of the card stay in place. So, the recipient can enjoy the chocolate without tearing up the card :-) I'm happy to make a tutorial for you, but I'd love it if you'd be willing to leave a comment to let me know whether you prefer a picture tutorial, or a video tutorial.



The reason this card took me so long to finalize is not because the idea was complicated--it certainly isn't. I was working hard to use as few supplies as I could, so you could recreate this card without spending a fortune :-) I only used one ink pad, the Island Indigo Classic Stampin' Pad. All the images come from one stamp set, the Christmas Tagables photopolymer stamp set. The background was created with 4 stamps from this set, that I adhered in a line, on Clear Block I, so I could ink them up and stamp them across the card a whole line at a time.

The bow was created using only the Artisan Label Punch, which happens to coordinate with the Christmas Tagables stamp set. I used the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack for the bow center, and to wrap around each chocolate. The rest of the colors coordinate with the paper stack: Smoky Slate card stock, Island Indigo card stock, and Pool Party card stock (which I used for the bow ends, although you could use the Pool Party patterned paper from the stack if you prefer). Other than that, you'll need a Stampin' Sponge if you want to shade the bow, and some Tombow Multipurpose Glue, and just a couple of Stampin' Dimensionals.

The Divine chocolates are perfect for keeping this treat card mailable, though you may need to pay for just a little extra postage, and have the Post Office hand cancel this for you. You can choose either the Milk Chocolate Mini Pieces or the Dark Chocolate Mini Pieces, as they are both the same size. You can find them in the Snacks section of the Shop tab on DivineChocolate.com or under the FOOD section at serrv.org (I have no affiliation with either of those sites, and get no referral compensation--I just love their chocolate).
