Here's what I came up with...
|Inside of Card|
To cover the card with Desert Sand, I turned to Cricut Craft Room. I combined a couple banner images and a square to create a template to cut the paper exactly the size needed for the card! This was a great improvement over the prior spin cards I made that had rough edges around the cut out.
I added just a touch of Huntington paper to dress up the front of the card.
You may also notice that I stamped a CHOCOLATE border above and below the window. The stamp set does not include the word chocolate alone, but I created it by cutting (GASP!) the "Chocolate Understands" stamp. Allowing yourself to cut the images on your stamps apart will open a whole new world of creative possibilities. After you are done, just reassemble on the carrier sheet. In future projects you can use all or just some of the pieces.
I also cut apart the the three chocolate candies stamp. You can see the original cluster on the inside of the card. I cut them apart and lined them up to create the border across the top of the card.
