CASology 56 - Dessert!


This week's CASology Cue Card is Dessert!


Chocolate is my favourite dessert (although I made a Millionaire's Cheesecake this weekend which was pretty darn good, if I do say so myself (everyone else said it too!)). To make this card, I cut a piece of Early Espresso cardstock and then filled it with rectangles cut and embossed with a nestability. I then wrapped it in aluminum (aluminium if you're from the UK!) foil and 'opened' it for a sweet treat. I also rubbed the foil so that you can see the texture of the chocolate inside the 'wrapper'. I finished it off with some CASual Friday stamps in Early Espresso and backed it onto a raspberry cardbase.

Now it's your turn! Eat Cakes Graphics is sponsoring this delicious challenge, go check out all the details at CASology. And make sure you visit the other members of the DT to see their delectable creations!
