CASology Week 115: Chocolate

I spent this past weekend card crafting with my sister-in-law and she introduced me to the CAS method of creating clean and simple cards.  She also told me about the CASology site and card challenges, so I decided to check it out.

This week's challenge - CHOCOLATE!!!  It comes to us in so many wonderful forms:  cake, pie, brownies, ice cream, pudding, hot cocoa, and more!  Just thinking about it makes my mouth water.  However, this week's chocolate challenge is about creating a recipe for a card, not a yummy dessert. This is what I came up with.  It's a pink and chocolate brown card with a cute little cupcake in the center.

First, I cut a large piece of hot pink cardstock for my background.  Next, I cut a smaller rectangle from brown cardstock and dry embossed it with hearts.  It needed to be softened a bit, so I used my corner-rounder to trim the corners.  Then, I cut a white circle and stamped it with the circular background stamp using pink ink.  And after that, I stamped the miniature cupcake and sentiment using brown ink.  I colored the stamped image using alcohol markers.  Finally, I adhered the brown cardstock to the pink using double-stick foam pads and did the same with the circle in order to create a little more dimension.  So, there you have it - chocolate cupcakes and hearts.

My supplies:  brown, pink, and white cardstock by Paper Studio
                       Papertrey ink stamps from Tiny Treats Valentine set
                       Mementos Dew Drop ink in rose bud and rich cocoa
