Well, I finally got to work on a Chocolate Christmas Card. If you are not use to working with chocolate ( which would be me ) it can be VERY temperamental. I am in no way a Chocolatier ! Love it, but boy can it be a real pain in the you know what.
I made this card with White Chocolate,.Dark Chocolate and Red Chocolate. You can get them at Michael's or AC Moore's. I also made some Candy Clay. The candy clay worked really well in the Cake machine. It is made with Chocolate and Clear Corn Syrup (Karo).
The card is 4x7. The snowman and the joy are made from the Candy Clay. The poinsettia is made with all Red Chocolate. The snow going around the card is all White Chocolate. The back round is a Snowflake Cuttlebug folder.I also used MS Pearl Dust.
I used the Christmas Cheer Cart for the Joy, Snow Friends for the Snowman and Joy of the Season for the poinsettia. I did roll out the Candy Clay and cut what I needed and then I took the melted chocolate and put it right on the mat,spread it out let it harden a little then cut out the decos. Thanks for stopping by!
The card is 4x7. I used the top of a Chinese take out lid filled it with chocolate to make the card .
I put the chocolate melts in a bowl and put them in the microwave on Defrost for 30 second at a time till they were melted. I then poured it into the lid and let it set up.
I let the Chocolate settle and dry. While it was drying I melted some red chocolate melts. Poured that onto my mat , let it rest for 5 minutes and then cut out the poinsettias the CC. After they was cut I put it in the freezer for no more than 3 minutes. The cuts came right off and I place them on a piece of plastic. You could use parchment paper or wax paper also.
For the back round I used a Cuttlebug folder. I rolled out a piece of candy clay and then put that into the folder and rolled it a couple of times . I then cut it to fit in the center of the card.
The Snowman the boots and the scarf were colored with Wilton's candy colors. I rolled out the colors on the mat and cut what I needed. I used melted white chocolate to make the snow around the edges of the card.
It really came out nice for being the first one! I will make these again. Don't be afraid to try making one you will be surprised how much fun they can be to make and give away!!!
