Chocolate and Celery

Two of my favorite colours together! I had been meaning to try out one of these cards for quite some time. They have the side fold, but the front has been rounded and is shorter than the back. You keep it tied shut with some ribbon. Since this was my prototype, I didn't do anything too extravagant. I was just happy that it worked!

I ran the card base through the cuttlebug using the largest oval from Petite Ovals. I then ran the chocolate piece through using the same die, and then I ran the celery piece using the coordinating scalloped die. I adhered the celery piece first, then placed the chocolate piece over top, so that the interior is still all white. I found some matching ribbon, then die cut another oval and scalloped mat, stamped a branch and sentiment from Out on a Limb, and that was that! The oval is mounted up on strategically placed pop dots, so that the ribbon can easily be pulled under and through.

Stamps: Out on a Limb (PTI)
Paper: Chocolate, Celery, White
Ink: Chocolate, Celery, Olive
Accessories, etc.: Scalloped and Normal Petite Oval Nestabilities, pop dots, double stitched ribbon, horizontal slot punch


  1. I really like this one natascha! can see why it is a fave colour combo!

    I don't have a cuttlebug so i am scratching my head how you can only cut out half the oval for shaping your card?

  2. I really like this! I love both colors. (So much so that my house is painted in both of them!) But I've never tried them together on a card before! Looks good!
