Chocolate..Valentine's Day-they just go hand in hand!

I was recently asked by Scrapbook Place to help come up with a theme card for our blog featuring one of the 4 food groups, CHOCOLATE. I had just come across some Delicious, rich, Chocolate colored papers by Basic Grey called Bittersweet and wanted to try a new design for me-the Pop Up Heart. After much cutting, bending, creasing I've got the most amazing card, I think!  The front is in browns and pinks and with an intricate pattern.  I randomly glazed the swirls-makes it look like melted chocolate! Rich brown heavy lace is offset with rose dew drops; pink flowers and a flourish peak your interest with what's INSIDE: a coordinating pink and brown paper and this gorgeous, pink Martha Stewart Gilttered heart that fully extends. To help this stand up, I used a light poster board but really think that I could've used a heavy Bazzil cardstock and it would've been fine.  A friend of ours asked me to do a card for his wife for Valentine's Day, which is also her birthday so I think this will be well received.  Thanks for looking!


  1. Thanks Diane! There were so many different parts to this card I didn't think I'd ever get it done :o) You know when you see a vision and want it to turn out just like you imagined it? I think I got it pretty close and so relieved!

  2. that is a fantastic pop up card! Love it!

  3. Thanks for your encouragement Pat! Much appreciated~~
