Cute Card Thursday # 163

Chocolate!! I love chocolate. It is my weakness. But I suppose I am not alone there :)

This week at Cute Card Thursday the theme is "I like chocolate a lot!". I thought I would make a Mothers' Day gift with a little chocolate box.  It is basically a mini pizza box, but it measures 6x4 inches with a little easel card on top.


I've masked little Tilda with her chocolate boxes and then stamped the sentiment on the image as well. The papers are Prima "Botanical" and I've gone a bit Doo Hickey nuts with Tilda's lace, the Rose leaf, and Dragonflies.

The recipe card is stamped and coloured as well so there is a place to write a little message and I've added little buttons to the bows. The little brown roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

This is what it looks like closed with the little teapot charm and pearls.

I had lots of fun making this little box. The "I like chocolate a lot" theme can be interpreted any way you like, either with images relating to chocolate or by the colour chocolate. I hope you'll come and play along and check out what the rest of the girls have made - OMG - the cards and projects are just stunning.

I would like to enter my box into these challenges:
Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar - Buttons, bows and bling
Wild Orchid Crafts - White + two colours and ROSES (blue and pink)
Dutch Magnolia Lovers - Mother

Thanks for stopping in to visit me today :)  Today is my eldest son's 3rd birthday! Where does the time go? It feels like just yesterday that we were in hospital with this amazing little baby and now he is a tall and adorable little man.  Happy Birthday Jarred!  I thought I would share a pic of him this morning with his little brother and Dad in the cubby that we gave him (lol, them) for his birthday. Smiles all round.

  7. Hi, Kylie! Your card/box is amazing! Love everything about it! Your surely paid lots of attention to every tiny detail! Great construction of the box! It looks charming and feminine!
    Happy Birthday to Jarred! Yes, time surely flies! They are both so sweet! My little one (1 and 9 months now) is right by my side and keeps yelling "baby, baby" while pointing at the boy's picture then "coucou" pointing towards the father. We have a similar house. He surely loves playing in there. Just make sure you keep it away from windows or balcony. They will soon try to climb on the roof:)
    Hugs and have a happy day!
