Mmmm….Chocolate…..

Don’t we all love Chocolate??

Of course I do and this month I received another fabulous gift from my Secret Sister and one of them contained Chocolate. This month we find out who our Sisters were and then as long as I receive her okay I will share her wonderful gifts here for you all to see. They are all just gorgeous and I couldn’t have asked for a better Secret Sister and hope she had as great a partner as I did.

So back to the Chocolate that I received. It wasn’t so much that I received Chocolate but the way it was presented. From the front it looks like a card but when you open it up it displays the Chocolate which was all individually wrapped to match the rest of the card. Now the chocolate used for this was the Cadbury 8 Moments which I found is very hard to find but I managed and purchased what was left as I’m going to make these up for some gifts I need over the next month.

So I sat down on Sunday and went to work making up a template to recreate this wonderful idea. I chose to use the Walk in the Park DSP and coordinating colours along with the Great Friend stamp set from the Spring Mini catalogue. I really love this set and it’s funny as I nearly didn’t purchase it because I’d not long since purchased the Flight of the Butterfly set so figured I had enough butterflies. So glad I changed my mind as I use it all the time.

So would you like to see what I’ve been talking about?

Here’s the front:

and now for the inside:

Isn’t this a fabulous idea?

Don’t forget to check back soon as hopefully I’ll be able to share the one I received or at least supply a link to my Secret Sisters blog/website where she has posted to share.  

Happy Stamping
