Easy and Fun Birthday Card for a Chocolate Lover

I started by creating the faux chocolate bar. To do this, I embossed a piece of Mocha Cardstock from Coffee Break Gradient Cardstock Set using Mod Squares 3D Embossing Folder. I folded around the edges of the cardstock to create the size of the chocolate bar.

Once this was done, I used some kitchen foil to wrap around the faux chocolate. I left the top open and pulled it down so the embossed piece can still be seen poking through.

For the sentiment, I stamped ‘happy birthday' from Note For You Stamp Set onto a piece of Lagoon Cardstock. I stamped this using Embossing Ink and then heat set using Pure White Embossing Powder, before wrapping this around the bottom of the faux chocolate bar.

For the background, I masked 1/2″ from all of the edges of a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panel of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. I then ink blended into the open area of the panel using Warm Sunshine, Buttercream, Cotton Candy, and Coral Berry Inks. For a little added interest, I added water drops before removing the Satin Masking Tape.
