Look what I have been making!!! If you have read my profile you will know that I have two children from my first marriage and my DH has five, although I cannot call them children as they range from 21 to 26 and all except one have partners, plus 3 grandchildren and don't get me started on the nieces and nephews. So Easter and Christmas is very expensive in our house. I decided this year to get anyone under 10 years of age an easter egg and make a chocolate card for all the others. A bar of Galaxy is only £1.00 and making the card holder makes it special. I only have 23 chocolate cards to make... LOL, perhaps buying Easter Eggs is looking more appealing.
I have made a couple of variations, this was my first attempt but decided I just didn't have the time to colour in an image for everyone, so just went with design below for everyone else. Image is Molly Love from Stamp Fairy.
I also have a male variation and will post up when I have some pictures.
A view of the chocolate - I have not decorated the insides yet so nothing to show.
I bought a reel of goregous ribbon from Costco a few months ago thinking it would be great for spring cards.
But I have struggled to find a paper to go with it, you would not believe the hours I have spent looking, so in the end I made my own - this is my first attempt at making backing paper - don't know if would interest any of you looking for a pastel Easter paper - if you would like a copy of it, I have it in a square format or A4 paper size - drop me an email and I will email you a copy. If I knew how to upload the original size for people to download I would do. Maybe someone can tell me.
I do have one special one that I am going to use for my DT post on Tuesday for Anything Goes Challenge Blog, so no peeking yet.
I found the template for the card on the Scor-pal site and just adapted it to the size of my chocolate bar.
Hope you enjoy this, and believe it or not I have 23 bars of chocolate in my craft room and not broken into one of them.... not yet anyway.
