Chocolate table favours decorated with Pop of Petals and Mosaic Mood patterned paper
It was such fun to stamp with a group of friends celebrating one of their birthdays. We made three gorgeous cards trying out different techniques – some of them are experienced crafters whilst others were stamping for the first time. It was great to experience their joy at creating beautiful cards.
We coloured with the blends, used punches and finished with heat embossing. I always love to share heat embossing as I still find it magical!
Whenever I run a class I like to add a treat at each stamper’s place. For this one I chose a simple chocolate bar wrap. To work out the measurements for the patterned paper pop the chocolate bar on your grid paper and mark the length and width. I roll the bar over to work out how much paper I’ll need – front, back and twice the depth and an overlap for the glue. There is no need to make it too technical! Use a strip of Tear n Tape to close the wrap. Don’t make it too tight as you need to be able to slip it off.
I used another piece of paper from the Mosaic Mood pack. Initially I wasn’t too sure about this paper but it is definitely growing on me!
The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Perennial Birthday which is my go to set for birthdays. It is stamped in Granny Apple Green ink on a stitched rectangle die.
The flower is stamped in Crushed Curry and punched out with the coordinating punch. The flowers aren’t uniform so you need to make sure you have the punch the right way around. I have used a sharpie to make dots on the stamps so I can line up the punch easily. The dot is on the bottom right hand corner of the back of the stamp and then I’ve made a corresponding dot on my punch. It takes a few moments to do this when you first buy the set but then it is so much easier each time you use it. You need two flowers per wrap.
The leaves are stamped in Granny Apple Green from the Painted Harvest stamp set and punch out with the Leaf punch.
I added a pearl to the centre of the flowers. Such a quick and easy treat!
