I ♥ Chocolate

Hi Stampers -

Just a quick post from me this afternoon to share my Design Team Project for The Cutting Cafe. This week was all about ... KISSES! HERSHEY's KISSES that is! This week we could chose from an assortment of files that all had to do with those yummy chocolate treats :)

Now...when we were given this assignment I was torn between two of my favorite Mo Manning images that both would go perfectly with this theme. So what do you do when you can't decide? USE BOTH! 

So I decided to make a Criss Cross Card that way I could have one on the outside and one on the inside :)

I used the HERSHEY KISS SHAPED CARD TEMPLATE for the large Kiss on the front of my card. Instead of making the shaped card I used it as a layer on my card. I wanted the kiss to look like someone ripped some of the paper off and took a bite out of it - LOL....maybe the culprit is little Ms. Chocolate Face! My sentiment is from the Hershey Kiss Treat Box File.

Here is a look at the inside insert:

This cute image is another Mo Manning image that is available through her Penny Black line called Kisses. I wanted the inside to kind of look like an evelope so I cut up two different sentiments from the Hershey Shaped Card File and placed them around the image. My little postage style stamps are from a little Bo Bunny set called Prairie Chic Collection Clear Stamps. If you notice on the insert in the bottom right corner and also on the large Hershey Kiss on the front - those little circle punch images are from the Hershey Kisses Valentine Bottoms. 

And finally a look at the whole thing...

Thanks for stopping by today! I better get this posted :) Be sure to visit The Cutting Cafe Inspiration Blog to see how my Design Teamies used their files!
