CASology Challenge - Week 115

Hi everyone,
I hope you all had a really fun World Cardmaking Day! I'm back with a brief post to share a card I created for this week's Challenge at CASology. The Cue Card is 'Chocolate'...how fun is that! And, if you have a chance, stop by the blog and check out all the clever interpretations everyone has come up with! 

I don't have a lot of food stamps or dies, so I did a search with my Silhouette and found some really hilarious quotes...like this:


Since the quote was so long, I resisted adding any embellishments on to the card, which is 5 1/4 x 5 1/2. Thankfully, I have some old 6x6" envelopes, as I plan to send this to my sister (the chocoholic in the family)!

The only thing I did was replace the middle 'O' in Chocolate with a chocolate candy, also from Silhouette. I die cut the quote with Kraft and placed it on to a dark brown panel, then framed it out with a Kraft card base...and that was it!

Well, thanks for stopping by and putting up with my somewhat twisted sense of humor :)

Barb, way to go! I have seen some very funny chocolate quotes on Pinterest that would make great cards...I love that you let the quote BE the card! Very clever! Thanks for playing along at CASology!

Oh I love that sentiment! So cute and funny! That's some fabulous and very detailed cutting there. My Silhouette hasn't been performing quite that nice lately. I think I need a new mat. I'l bet that took some time getting it all glued down just right! Anyway it turned out wonderful! ((Hugs my friend ))
