Chocolate Bar Easel Card


This card was made with the StampingDragon Designs "Chocolate Bar" image. I used my E30, E31, E33 and E25 Copic markers to color all that chocolaty goodness. The edges of the image and the paper were inked with Tim Holtz "Gathered Twigs" Distress Ink.

I used brown, ivory and red Core Color Core'dinations cardstock along with American Crafts Valentine's Day pattern paper from the Color of Memories line. The heart and the circle are both cut from the same paper. For the heart border on the inside of the card, I used my Silhouette to intentionally cut half way through the cardstock, peeled up the top layer and then inked over the exposed paper to define the heart pattern.

I finished the card off with a key from Tim Holtz and some brown embroidery floss, ribbon, red mesh and brads from my stock of supplies.

Don’t forget to stop by the Stampingwith Dragon challenge blog and enter your project into our contest. The theme is “Anything Goes” so you can show off your favorite projects.
