Happy New Year!! Did you have a great time ringing in 2012? This is going to be a fabulous year - I can just feel it! And what better way to start the New Year than with another MFT Teaser. Today we have two new à la modes to show you and I picked the one that appealed to my sweet tooth!
This is Dip Me In Chocolate à la mode and she is pretty much my idea of heaven! LOL! I'm a bit of chocoholic and would love to find a chocolate bar that big. I've never met a chocolate I didn't like! I stamped her out on X-Press It blending cardstock and coloured her with my copics. I cut her out and stuck her over top of the original Oval Decorative Doily die and the largest die in the new Oval Decorative Doily Duo. The oval in the middle of the doilies were cut using the smallest layer of the Well Worn Greetings Die-namic - it was a perfect fit! I love how all my dies play nice together!
I was going for a clean and simple look to this card. I'm not so sure I achieved the simple part, but I think the design is pretty clean. The layout is a Mojo Monday layout from a couple of weeks ago but I veered quite a bit from the sketch in the end. The papers are all BoBunny Snowfall (that I got from Lora at One Crazy Stamper - thanks Lora!).
Here's a detail photo showing you that I coated the chocolate bar with a Sakura Clear Glaze pen. I also used the Sakura Stardust pen over top of the wrapper. I was aiming for a gold wrapper so I coloured first in Y21, Y26, and Y28 and then coated it with the Stardust pen.
For the inside, I stamped my sweet toothed friend again in Memento Rich Cocoa (how appropriate!) and another sentiment from the set next to it. I ran a strip of patterned paper through my Cuttlebug with the new Jumbo Monarch border Die-namics and adhered it to the top.
