Chocolate Kiss Valentine Card

How about sending a card with a “chocolate kiss” to your Valentine this year?

So, how do you make the kiss, you ask? Here’s how I do it:

  • take a small piece of aluminum foil – yes, from the kitchen – and crumple it up
  • gently un-crumple the foil, smooth it out on a flat surface by hand, then roll a brayer over it to further flatten it
  • grab a scrap of cardstock about the same size as your foil – it doesn’t matter what color – and cover it with a thin coating of Liquid Multipurpose Glue
  • stick the foil to the cardstock and press to attach – you can use your brayer if you want – and let dry for several minutes
  • use your Festive Flower Builder Punch to punch half of a petal from the foil+cardstock
  • hand cut the bottom with scissors to give the kiss a flat bottom
  • use your ¾” Circle Punch to round the bottom corners of your kiss
  • stamp the word “LOVE” from the Crazy About You stamp set, using Memento Tuxedo Black, onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock
  • hand cut around the stamped word with scissors to make the flag for the kiss

Once you’ve made your chocolate kiss, you can attach it to your Valentine Card to send to a special person! The “sending a kiss” sentiment is from the Perfect Pairs stamp set (the second half of the pair says “to make it better”).

And by the way, did you know that you could emboss the Red Foil Cardstock? I didn’t either, ’til I tried it! Isn’t that a fun background – those raised shiny red Polka dots?
