Chocolate Truffle Kind of Day Card
As soon as I saw this set, I knew those chocolates would look delicious in little paper wrappers! This Chocolate Truffle Card showcases the chocolates on a simple-to-make card.
Putting the chocolates in tiny vellum cups seems to elevate them in a candy shop, so why not on a card?
This card is perfect to send to that friend who LOVES chocolate (and I’ll bet you know at least a few people who fit that description!
And don’t forget to stamp the inside of your cards. Ordinarily, I don’t do this, and commonly leave my cards blank. However, this stamp set has such cute sentiments that are perfect for the front AND inside of your card.
Do you want to make more cards with this stamp set?? RSVP for my (virtual) stamp class, and I’ll send you everything you need to make 4 different cards! We’ll craft together via video August 31, so leave enough time to receive your craft goodies.
See below how quick it can be to make this card!
How to Make a Chocolate Truffle Card:
Cut your Cardstock:
- Soft Suede — 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, scored at 4 1/4” for your card base.
- Merry Merlot — 5 1/4” x 4”.
- Very Vanilla — (2) 5 1/8” x 3 7/8”.
Create your Truffles:
- On a scrap of Very Vanilla, stamp three sets of chocolates using Soft Suede ink. Stamp the insides with 3 varying brown inks; I used Early Espresso, Soft Suede, and Crumb Cake so they looked like varying dark and milk chocolates.
- Die cut your chocolates.
- Cut 1/2” strips of Vellum, and score at 1/4” increments. Then cut them to be 1 1/4” long. These are your paper cups. Use liquid glue along the bottom of the chocolates and adhere the vellum over the bottom half.
- Next, stamp the sentiments to the top and bottom of the Very Vanilla layer for your card front using Soft Suede ink. Stamp the inside layer, too, and adhere it to the inside of your card base.
- Die cut the word “chocolate” twice using scraps of Soft Suede and Merry Merlot. Use liquid glue to adhere them together slightly offset from each other. Glue them to your card!
Adhere it all together:
- Adhere the stamped Very Vanilla layer to the Merry Merlot layer, then add that to your card base.
- Next, add mini dimensionals to your chocolate truffles to adhere them to your card.
- Lastly, add a few champagne rhinestones to add a little texture to your card!
