Divine™ Chocolate Cards: 2 Color Combos

So, I showed you a Divine Gift Box Card, and a Divine Christmas Tree Card previously. I went back and did a little bit of redesigning, to make each card in both color combos, to give you more options. They both feature the Christmas Tagables photopolymer stamp set, which is available a few different ways. Check out the Pop & Place Holiday Gift Tags promotion for complete info. Click on any picture to see it larger:

Featuring Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack, Soft Suede ink, Gumball Green card stock, and Crushed Curry card stock.

Featuring Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack, Island Indigo ink & card stock, and Pool Party card stock.

These cards are designed around Divine Mini Milk Chocolate Pieces, and the Divine Mini Dark Chocolate Pieces are the same size, so you can use them interchangeably. On the Gift Box Cards, each chocolate has a tab to pull it out. On the Christmas Tree Card, you can access both sides of the top chocolate, so no need for pull tabs there. However, there are pull tabs on each of the lower chocolates. You can find the chocolates at DivineChocolate.com or at SERRV.org. Currently, they are available only in 150 piece boxes. Don't worry, you will use/eat ALL of them in no time! I will be showing you more treat holders using them for the holidays, and even into Valentine's Day.

Both color combos of the Gift Bow Card use a Stampin' Sponge to sponge around the layered edges of the Artisan Label Punch Bow (click for tutorial). Both color combos of the Christmas Tree Card use the Merry Minis Punch Pack, to punch out the star for the top of the tree. [Merry Minis Punch Pack is on sale through 11:50pm MT on December 9th!] For the card bases, you can use either card stock from a package, or our new Cut & Ready Card Bases--the colors for my card bases are Crumb Cake and Smoky Slate.

Let's say you didn't want to make the Gift Box Card...maybe you only want to make the Christmas Tree Card. That's totally cool, each set of cards purposefully uses different patterns from its featured paper stack. Each stack has 48 sheets in it, so, in the case of the Red/Green tree, you could make 24 trees using the Season of Style DSP Stack's chevron pattern paper, and make another 24 of them using the dotted paper (shown on the Gift Box Card). Similarly, you can make 24 of the Blue/Gray trees as shown, and make another 24 using the Winter Frost DSP Stack's 6-point star pattern. You can easily tuck these cards in standard envelopes, but I think you will have to pay extra postage for the thickness if you mail them, so I would go ahead and put them in a padded envelope for better protection.

I've had to redo the tutorial for the cards since I've redesigned them to more efficiently use the patterned papers, but hope to have that up this weekend--thanks for your patience!
