Inspired by Green & Black’s

Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday!!

It’s been such an exhausting week already that I don’t have a new card for you today. 🙁 Instead I have another publication reject instead – yay for emergency options!

This one was inspired by a brand of chocolate in the UK called Green & Black’s. They are very good and very yummy. Here is the packaging of their milk chocolate bar:

And here is what the inspiration led to:

What do you think? A very literal interpretation I know but I love it!

I started with a Blueberry Sky card base and stamped the sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Holiday and the price circle from Garden Variety using Versamark ink then heat embossed with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder. I then stamped the mistletoe from Mistletoe & Holly and the smaller sentiment from part of one of the stamps from Stylish Sentiments: Holiday using just Versamark for a tone-on-tone look.

Finally to finish off I took a strip of Dark Chocolate cardstock and heat embossed another sentiment then adhered that to the base using Scor-Tape. Now if only I could eat the finished result, lol!

I’m hoping to get some energy to create a new card soon but in the meantime I would love to hear what you think of this one! Thanks so much for stopping by!
