Anything But a Card C4CC3

The challenge over at Crazy4Cocoa this week is to make anything but a card. I used the free Cocoa digi I got just for playing along with the first challenge, and I love that I can make it small enough to use on these matchbox candy holders. I've made a ton of these already and they're so fun to make and hand out. They always seem to bring a smile to everyone's face. I used real red card stock along with some retired SU! dp The sentiment in the circle is by Sweet 'n Sassy, and the one inside the oval is by Inkadinkado. The bottlecap circle was done with a Quickutz. Cocoa was colored with Copics and I used the square lattice embossing folder on the mats. I used a retired SU! corner punch, and added some silver cording to the corners for a little sparkle.
If you have any cocoa images, click the link above and come play along with us. There's a free stamp set up for grabs at the end of the month for those who play along, but you must use a Cocoa image. Sweet 'n Sassy has lots of Cocoa images, so join in on the fun! We'd love to see what you create!
Have a Cocoa kind of Tuesday and stay warm! It's c-c-c-cold out there today!!

What a great project! Now, I can imagine with all those packages and cards mailed and the baking finished, you are going to have lots of time to do cards and projects. Lucky you! Well, I suppose we decided to keep some of the cold weather down South because it is still here and I am NOT enjoying it. LOL Have a great day in the craft room.
