Comforted By Chocolate

Posted on

Have you ever envisioned something and then when it came time to execute the plan nothing went right?  That’s this card in a “Nutshell”. 


I made this card for one of my favorite people in the world who loves Chocolate and vowed to go without it and ALL things sweet for 115 days.  A good laugh always makes things seem better even when giving up something you love.  Although it’s not funny until it’s over that’s why I waited until he was back on chocolate to give him this card.  LOL.

By the time I decided the card was finished it was a 6×6 square card instead of the 5×7 horizontal  top-folding card I set out to make.  And I had paper-pieced the background and image which I vowed NOT to do but I was so frustrated I did it anyway.  The color scheme didn’t go as planned either and I didn’t think it looked quite done but everything I thought of adding was over-the-top or risky and not worth messing up the card for and then, God forbid, having to start all over.  So I’ve declared it finished and I think I’m finally pleased with it.

The only things that went according to plan were coloring the image with copic markers (although I needed to do it twice) and changing the “chips” bag and “TV remote” control to a bag of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and a box of chocolates (Cadbury in my mind) respectively.

For this card I used the “Lazy Boy” Art Impressions stamp and made the changes noted previously and the sentiment is from Rubbernecker Stamps.  Hope he likes it.



 God Bless & Happy Stamping!
