A Chocolate Affair

A Chocolate Affair is the Stamp of the Month for August and I used it for my new product open house make and take! The best thing about this stamp set it that it is FREE this month with a $50 purchase! I also wanted to feature the new Babycakes paper, Artbooking Cartridge and Bronze Shimmer Trim.

I got the idea for this card from Krista Ritskes' blog!

The overlay and frame for the stamp were both cut using the Artbooking cartridge.  I cut the overlay from page 82 at 2.5 inches using the Real Dial Size button out of Buttercup.  To cut it Shift, Overlay, All Boy key. Be SURE to have the REAL DIAL size on!

Under the overlay I cut a piece of sunset at slightly less than 2.5 by 5.5.  The strips of Babycakes print are about 0.5 by 2.5 and I randomly put strips on the overlay before attaching the Sunset.  

The piece of paper for the Chocolate Affair stamp was cut at 2.25 with the Artbooking Cartridge on page 82.  To cut it Shift, Photo Mat 1, All Boy.   Be SURE to have the REAL DIAL size on!  The mat is cut the same exact way just 2.5.

To add a little sparkle I used the Bronze Shimmer Trim above the overlay!
