When was the last time you went a day without any chocolate. I’m not sure I can remember. I keep a supply of little dark chocolates in case of a chocolate emergency, which happens more often than you might thing.  I used the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set (part of the Nothing’s. Better Than Bundle) to make today’s simple card. It was one of our August Stamp Club Projects.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Soft Suede card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Rococo Rose CS layer cut to  2-1/4″ x 3″
  • Early Espresso CS layer cut to 2″ x 2-3/4″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 1-3/4″ x 2-1/2″
  • strip of Whisper White CS cut to 5/8″ x 5″, for under the ribbon
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set:

  • “Chocolate” in Early Espresso ink randomly onto the front of the card base
  • sentiment and chocolates in Early Espresso ink onto the Whisper White CS layer

Colored using Stampin’ Blends Markers:

  • chocolates in Dark and Light Soft Suede and Light Rococo Rose

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Early Espresso ribbon adhered onto Rococo Rose ribbon using Tear & Tape
  • Rococo Rose ribbon adhered onto the Whisper White CS strip using Tear & Tape
  • ends of ribbon strip cut using Paper Snips
  • strip glued onto the center of the front of the card base
  • Whisper White CS layer glued onto the Early Espresso CS layer
  • Early Espresso CS layer glued onto the Rococo Rose CS layer
  • Rococo Rose CS layer adhered onto the front of the card base (over ribbon) using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Be sure not to put any Dimensionals where it covers the ribbon
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
