A Chocolate Affair

For today's card I used a tutorial from the Technique Junkie CD "Shape It" (well sort of... I couldn't find my cd right off so I just winged it... I think I did alright). :) I knew as soon as I saw this months Stamp Of The Month set I would be making this card with it for sure!

I really could have stamped any of the sentiments from this set on this card but I figured this one was probably the most versatile for just tossing into my collection of cards to have on hand. I really like how it turned out though so I may be making more of this one to add to my box of cards for the Canadian Troops.

I used chocolate cardstock for my card base and the squares of chocolate. Whisper and a piece from the Babycakes paper packet make up the wrapper with a piece of aluminum foil. So much fun!
