Magnolia Chocolate Bar Wrapper & Card

Hi, thank you for peeking in today!!! Remember that i told you yesterday that for the CCT Challenge "what have you had for Christmas" i had to think constantly about all the foods we ate lol. So here it is now.. taaataaa... The hudge altered extra large "Milka" Chocolate bar which Christina Carstensen sent me along with 2 hudge boxes of homemade delicous cookies. hmmm sooo yummy :-)
The sleeve was decorated using the fabulous sketch Kristine has provided for us to follow over on the Friday Sketcher blog. Since it was a long sketch format i thought that could work with the bar. The ribbons are stings from the new Raspberry Ribbon kit i used 3 different kinds here, once you have tied the bow, the bar that's inside just slides easily in and out. The bows always stay pretty much on the same spot once you move the bar in and out. Super fun and cute.
Since the slider was fairly quick and simple so i used the rest of the Designer Paper to create a small gift card to use with the candy. The card "works" in the same system as the slider. If you pull where the white bow is - the insert slides in and out. The pictures are really bad.. i finished these things up late and they are kind of blueish.. so the yellow airbrushing behind the daisy does not show nor the pretty glitter that's added to the flower petals and onto the wings of the punched out butterflies.
The inside of the panel is stamped with my Grunge set that Kristine gave me for Christmas.
If you want to recreate the card to try the slider system you could try with these measurements: use 1 sheet of 8.5 x 11 CS, cut CS to 5 x 11, score @ 5 and 10, leaving you a 1 inch flap, add to this flap tacky tape and close your card. Create the insert by cutting your CS to 5 and 4 7/8. Decorate your insert keeping in mind that your ribbon will wrap horizontal over the panel. I have used Organdy ribbon so my Sentiment is still good to read.
Recipe:
Stamps: Magnolia for girl and flower (Valentines 2008 and Jingle Jangle 2008), Sentiment: Stampin up"The flight of the butterfly", Grunge Set
Embellishments: Ribbons by Raspberry Ribbons, Stickles, Robins Nest
