I held my last class at the Beachmere Retirement Resort for this year yesterday. I like to give each of the ladies who attends a small chocolate treat to celebrate our year together.
This year I followed some instructions shared by Lynda Emerson. They are so cute and hold a Ferroro Roche chocolate perfectly.
I used Whisper White card and punched the long end using the Scallop Topper Tag Punch. I added a layer of Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper to the back also punched with the Scallop Topper Tag Punch. I punched a piece of Real Red card using the 1-3/8″ Circle Punch and then cut around the hole using one of the Layered Circle Framelits Dies to create the little frame for the place where the chocolate sits. I stamped the Gingerbreadman image from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set onto Whisper White card using Early Espresso ink and punched him out using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. I attached the Gingerbreadman to the designer series paper using dimensionals. I cut the little banner using the framelit from Home Sweet Home Framelits Dies and stamped Merry from the Sweet Home stamp set using Real Red ink. I attached the banner over the Gingerbreadman.
Everyone thought they were so sweet. So thanks to Lynda for a wonderful idea.
Bye for now,
