A Card for Someone Cherished

Hi friends!  Vivian Keh here to share a card project that uses Core’dinations Chocolate Box Collection.  I love this collection for the warm, cozy feeling it lends to papercrafted projects. The cardstock comes in a range of yummy chocolate hues, and the core comes in a pretty rainbow of colors to choose from.  Isn’t this embossed pattern lovely?  FYI, I think this folder is retiring soon.

VivianKehCherishedChocolateBoxCard_BFor this card, I dry embossed the pretty design onto a piece of Chocolate Box Cardstock and sanded to reveal the warm coral core color.

VivianKehCherishedChocolateBoxCard_DFor a soft framing element, I added a bit of intentionally carefree stitching along the edge.

VivianKehCherishedChocolateBoxCard_VI die-cut a label out of another piece of Chocolate Box cardstock.  This Bigz die comes paired with an embossing folder that I love.  Using it will help set off a cluster of embellishments and/or display your sentiment that much more prominently.  I took advantage of this dry embossing potential and sanded to reveal the core color.  Labels are a good thing.

Coordinating embellishments were layered to vary textures and keep the feeling soft.

VivianKehCherishedChocolateBoxCard_AI’m going to send this card to my niece – it’s feminine and lovely like her.

Thanks for visiting with me today, and be sure to stop by the Core’dinations blog to see MORE Chocolate Box inspirations from the team.  This is my last post for Core’dinations as a member of their design team, and I want to take a moment to thank everyone there for a great run.  I learned so much from them and made a few friends along the way, too!

  1. I am learning by your style the appreciation for clean lines, more simplicity to enhance beautiful elements that don’t get hidden but take front seat. I love the Coredinations paper … one can do so much with it. Thanks Vivian for your wonderful artwork.
