Mint Chocolate Rose cards created for Chocolate Baroque Anniversary Challenge 25

Good evening my crafting friends. I am running a little late today with showing my projects for the special Anniversary Chocolate Baroque Challenge 25. The theme is chocolate – yum! Check out the blog for more fabulous inspiration from my Teamies, and there is an extra special prize this month too.

I have created 2 projects for you with the theme of Mint Chocolate. I hope that you like them. The first is an 8X8 twisted easel card where I have made a faux chocolate bar to create the stopper. I also used one of the lovely free digital papers from Challenge 19. The second is a quicker project using the same colour scheme.

Open easel card with faux chocolate bar stopper.

Materials:

How to make it:

  1. Diagonally score the front of the card from bottom left to top right and fold to the inside to create the easel.
  2. Cut an 8X8 inch panel from the hammered card and colour the edge with mint alcohol pen. Colour the inside panel of the card to match.
  3. Trim 2 sheets of the digital paper to slightly under 8X8 inches. Stamp the rose image with Distress ink onto the right hand top corner. I used a damp brush to drag out some of the ink and add shading to the ‘inner’ sheet. Ink the edges with Distress Ink.
  4. Glue the digital papers to the hammered card panel and inside the card. See the picture to see how to orientate the paper. Draw faux stitching around the edges to frame.
  5. Cut a piece of thick card the same width but slightly longer than the printed ‘chocolat’ panel. Stick gold paper over the ends to imitate gold foil of a chocolate bar. Wrap with the paper, add a little ink to the edges and glue to the card front.
  6. Cut the decorative heart in brown card. Edge with faux stitching. Stamp the sentiment with Versamark and heat emboss with gold powder. Glue on the sweetie bow and add to the card front with 3D glue gel.
  7. Cut some small squares from brown card to imitate chocolate squares. I used waste pieces from a window die. Cut some thick card to create the faux chocolate bar stopper. Glue on the chocolate pieces. Wrap with the digital paper and the ends with the foil, creating a torn opening revealing the ‘chocolate’.
  8. Stamp the rose onto stamping card with Archival ink three times. Cut out one full images and then elements to decoupage up. Colour with alcohol pens. Shape slightly and glue to the card with 3D glue gel.
  9. Apply some glitter glue to a palette or craft mat and thin slightly with water. Paint onto the rose image.
  10. Glue the topper panel to the bottom right hand side card front triangle to create the twisted easel. Glue down the faux chocolate bar to create the stopper. Finish with PVA pearls.

Here is a quicker project using the same Mint Chocolate colours:
