Trying to beat my Sister Pat!!!

I just got my August PTI order late yesterday afternoon! My Sister Pat * Hi Pat* got hers on MONDAY!!! Soooo unfair. So I made a card lickety split! We both ordered Dawns Foodie set mostly because of the ADORABLE Chocolate Bar. Colin, my baby ~ the one who just left for college :( ~ LOVES Chocolate! He loves Godiva but he also fond of plain 'ole Hershey Bars! So.... I had to get a card made and in the mail before Pat beat me to it. I tried to copy Jessica Witty's card. I actually made most of this card yesterday but wan't all that happy with it. So, this afternoon I remade the chocolate bar. It is better, but.... The only chocolate brown ink I have is PTI. It doesn't emboss that well. I tried to ink with VersaMark first and then the brown ink. It took MULTIPLE tries and this was the best one. I used 5 chipboard cuts of the candy bar and used Scotch Quick Dry glue to adhere them together. A dark brown piece of cardstock was inked with VersaMark and clear embossed. I also would uses a lighter color of brown. Probably PTI Dark Chocolate. I was looking for a Hershey color. In person you can see the segments of chocolate but not in the pictures. I took typing paper and stamped the image again and did my clear embossing. You cannot see it at all in the picture. I trimmed it up, cutting off the segment part, and adhered it to the bar. The card is ADORABLE but I can do better and clean up my first time mistakes. I just HAD to get mine in the mail first! ( Don't tell Pat!!!)
Thank you for looking at my blog!


  1. You are EVIL! You know how much I wanted to make that for my adorable nephew! Oh well. I sent him his "first" college card--that kid is wonderful!

    I do love your card, but I will make one, too! But, I am thinking of using red and blue ink to make it Jayhawk chocolate! LOL

  2. Obviously Colin is an extremely smart young man. Godiva is THE BEST chocolate ever!! Your chocolate bar is way cute. I didn't get this set, just so many of the sentiments that I knew wouldn't apply to me. But I do love that candy bar.
