Poetry: Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Chocolate Card

Sorry it has been a while since my last post! I have been working on a new design team - Frantic Stamper! The new dies don't release until next month (February 2017) so even though I've been creating and writing up posts, I can't publish until then! For now, here is a post that I did last year to go with my first video as part of the Imagine Crafts Artist in Residence program. There was a bit of a snafu with getting the video posted on their blog and a change in leadership so this never got released.

The theme for the challenge was Poetry. I had an Elizabeth Barrett Browning poem stamp for the longest time, usually using it as a background for Valentine's Day cards. This one has a little twist - the whimsical lady enjoying boxes of chocolates! You can just imagine her reciting the poem in her head as she eats her chocolates one by one.

Making the Card

Watch the tutorial below for a step-by-step on making the card:

I love how fun this image is, giving a whole new meaning to the poem. I don't know about you, but chocolate has this effect on me.

Unfortunately the Pico Embellisher doesn't show up well in the photos. The chocolates and her earring have a slight 3D feel to them plus a glossy shine and slight shimmer - looks so cool in person!
