My Crop Chocolate cards

Thanks to Crop Chocolate's generosity, I had the opportunity to play with products that I did not even know existed. I am still working on the package that they sent but I wanted to share with you the first 3 cards that I have made.

I used the Wild Card cartridge for the first card. The patterned papers, flower, and the ribbon came from Crop Chocolate. I used a rubber-stamp that I bought from Impress Rubber Stamps for the sentiment and added in the rhinestone for a flower center. The base is from a Martha Stewart cardstock pack.

As much as I  like the first card, I thought that it did not reflect the theme very well. After all, those woody tones were not really "Springy". I really wanted to showcase the floral patterned paper too. Going through my stack of Cricut cutouts, I found the butterfly "leftover" from a recent card and thought it would go well with the paper. I added a ribbon and an epoxy sticker to make a quick card. Most of you would recognize that I also used Martha's loopy punch on the border.

Included in the package was a pack of epoxy charms. I have to admit that I have not used these before even though I use epoxy stickers frequent on my cards. Since the theme of my Crop Chocolate package was "Spring Fling", I used the cutout that came with the pack of embellishment papers to highlight that. I attached the flower epoxy charm and used the adhesive-backed fabric ribbon (so convenient!) that were sent to me.

There is still plenty left from the package to make a couple more cards and I am working on doing just that. This has been a really fun experience for me. Thank you, Crop Chocolate!
