Chocolate Birthday Wishes

Chocolate is always a good idea for any celebration, right? I made these Ghiradelli treat boxes for two friends that are celebrating birthdays this month-- Deb today and Vicki on the 29th.

Thanks going out to another buddy, Tracy, for demoing this box construction for me. There's a great tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers, but I am always a bit intimidated by 3-D projects, stemming from my sorely lacking spatial comprehension abilities.

The treat boxes actually coordinate with previously posted cards. This is one for a Magnolia Card Kit Swap:

Stamps: Magnolia 'Strawberry Tilda' and sentiment. Cardstock: Wild Wasabi, Rose Red, ki memories DP 'Shimmery Juicy Summer', Papertrey white. Ink: Memento black, Copics, Certainly Celery, Rose Red. Accessories: Oval and circle Nestabilities, Cuttlebug Flower dies, primas, brads, Bazzill gingham ribbon.

And this is a card based on a Midnight Madness Sketch challenge:

Stamps: Inkadinkado kid sentiment. Cardstock: Basic Grey 'Archiver', My Mind's Eye 'Simply Delightful', Chocolate Chip, Whisper White. Ink: Chocolate Chip. Accessories: Long Rectangle Nestabilities, primas, brads.

Be sure to join me in showering these special gals with loads of birthday wishes!
