To make this card I started by cutting my card base 4.25" x 11" from heavy weight bright white Hammermill cardstock. Folding it in half cross-wise. Using the Polka Dot Stencil
some pink Nuvo Embellishment Mousse I created the dotted background. I colored the bowl of chocolate from the Crazy For Chocolate
set using Copic alcohol markers
and cut it out using the coordinating Crazy For Chocolate die set.
I've added Stickles Sprinkled Sugar
to the top of each candy. Once it's dry it really looks like sprinkled sugar crystals. I love that it looks so real! Here see for yourselves:
The "Happy" part of the sentiment was cut out from brown cardstock using the large word die 'Happy'
and the other part was stamped directly on the card base. The chocolate bowl and the word Happy were attached with some foam tape to give some dimension to the card. To add some bling I adhered pink enamel dots from the It's a Party Enamel Dots
set , brown Sequins
and pink rhinestones between the polka dots.
Here is another close-up of the polka dots made with Nuvo mousse. It gives such a nice effect on the card. I love using structure paste or embellishment gels/mousse with stencils for adding dimension and special effects.
