Happy Friday! Did you know that today is National Chocolate Chip Cookie day? In honor of that, I asked my fellow design team members to feature the color Chocolate Chip in their Fabulous Friday projects over on the Sisters in Stamping blog. This is a tried-and-true neutral color that has been around for a while and it pairs so well with reds (berry burst, melon mambo, real red, peekaboo peach)... I chose to go with real red and whisper white for my color combination. And big thanks to my Mom (love you Nana!!) who baked chocolate chip cookies for me to take to my son Brandon who is swimming at the YMCA Nationals long course swim meet in Greensboro today... perfect timing for me to feature a few in my project today.
This wood crate comes together so quickly with just half a sheet of card stock. The Big Shot and Wood Crate framelits are awesome! This framelit set pairs perfectly with the coordinating Wood Words stamp set and can be purchased in a bundle (see above) for savings of 10%! Click here to shop.
Here's a close-up view of the little crate. I cut my two sides of the box from just half a sheet of chocolate chip card stock. I stamped each piece with the Hardwood stamp set using chocolate chip ink. I like they way it turned out! Just a few little squirts of Tombow multipurpose adhesive and it was put together. I cut off the top of a clear envelope and slipped two cookies inside, tied it off with some linen thread and added a tag cut from the same framelit set after I stamped the sentiment with real red ink. Super easy to put this favor together.
Here's another view of my card from the side. I used the 2" circle punch to cut out my sentiment/heart piece and attached it to a chocolate chip mat cut using the Starburst punch. I added a tiny rhinestone for a little bling and popped it up on my card front. The bottom of the panel was stamped with the same Hardwood stamp set that I used on my crate. Easy-peasy!
