Crafty Gals Corner Challenge: Try Something New!!!! Exercise is a Dirty Word . . .

Welcome to Crafty Gals Corner's challenge with the theme of Try Something New!!! We have two (2) fabulous sponsors for our challenge: Stamp and Create ($20 Gift Certificate) and Bugaboo Stamps (7 digital images)!!!!

With my New Year's Resolution to take better care of myself by going to the gym not only for water aerobics for arthritis but I have now started with a personal trainer this image was the purrfect image for me to play with - Ruby Chocolate . . . Dirty Word and for my trying something new - a side step card!!!

NOW, let's talk about this card - it most definitely got a vocabulary lesson and several pieces of chocolate were inhaled in this process!!!!!!!! I followed the tutorial on Splitcoasters to make this edible card!!!

  • brown Recollection card stock for the base with the background being DCWV The Snack Stack which had this edible paper!!!
  • Ruby Chocolate - Dirty Word was colored using Whisper Strokes and Spectrum Noir Markers with gel pen accents
  • lollipop was cut using Cricut Mini Monsters Cartridge with Stickles accents
  • individual pieces of the chocolate were cut and added to the card for dimensional
I tried something new as this is the very first side-step card I have made and I will make another one but I have learned the following: DO NOT EMBOSS BEFORE FOLDING OR USE CARDSTOCK THAT HAS BEEN EMBOSSED!!!!!!

  1. So cute! I'm a sucker for chocolate, but I do exercise daily. chocolate makes a great reward for a job well done. LOL You GO, girl! Love this! xxD

  2. Oh Lynne, this card is just up my alley! :-) Not only is one of my favourite folds, but I so agree with the sentiment :-) Exercise is indeed a dirty word :-) Looking at your card makes me want to raid my pantry, my second shelf in particular (yup, that's here I keep my chocolate stash) :-)
    Super fun card!
