Chocolate Birthday Card

This card is A5 in size, using a blank of white linen effect card.
Chocolate Birthday Card cadbury miniatures
I made this card for my sister in law, to give to her best friend.  The brief was “chocolate, personalised, with a bit of glitz and glamour” and as I have made several cards for this person before, I knew it had to be something really different.
I have covered the card blank with some gift wrap I got from Cadbury World some years ago, matching it up with purple felt ric rac braid from a Papermania pack, embellished with clear flat backed gems, plus some purple and gold papers for the mat and layering.

It will come as no surprise to you that I have a few boxes of Cadbury miniatures amongst my stash, which were perfect to add to the card, topped off with candle stickers.  The font I have used is called LD Franks Child in size 28. It looks good enough to eat!

Great idea, but I'd eat the chocolate before I got the card made:)
