Eat Chocolate Chocolate Holder

The new Occasions Mini Catalog holds new stamps and products to delight and inspire us.  One set that has wide appeal is the new Eat Chocolate set (of 4) which features... chocolate, of course!
It's fun to stamp with and also to give cards and gifts which feature this set.  This project today is a little bar of real chocolate wrapped in a Two Tag Die-cut of Crumb Cake cardstock which has been embellished to make it a special little gift. First, the large flourish from the FREE Sale-A-Bration set Bliss was stamped on the tab underneath the ribbon and the sentiment label in Rose Red ink.
The image and words were stamped in Early Espresso, punched out with the Decorative Label Punch then Crystal Effects was added to the candy image and the Rose Pink Fine Supernova Glitter was immediately sprinkled on.  After the Crystal Effects dried, the edges were sponged with Rose Red ink.
I used the new Sweet Buttons Embosslit to cut and emboss (at the same time!) buttons from Rose Red cardstock Linen Thread was tied around Marina Mist Striped Wide Grosgrain ribbon then threaded through the button and tied.  On the back the remainder of this saying ("I am that friend") was stamped and punched out with the Word Window Punch and adhered.
This version of the holder uses a different stamp.  The chocolate portion was stamped a second time, the "bar" cut out and added directly over the first stamping with Dimensionals to accent it.

 Thanks for dropping by!  I have more for you tomorrow!
