Nothing's Better Than Chocolate!

The Nothing's Better Than bundle is on page 91 of the annual catalog.  I've been using it this week.  Today I have two projects using this bundle to make chocolate projects.  I also have free downloadable tutorials for each!

Nothing's Better Than Chocolate Bar Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I must say that I'm really proud of my chocolate bar.  The fact that the word fit on the chocolate was a wonderful coincidence!   Here are the directions for this card.

 Line up sayings from Nothing’s Better Than on the Stamparatus. Leave room for the
word CHOCOLATE. Stamp in Early Espresso. You may need to stamp more than
once to make it show on the designer paper.
 Cut the word CHOCOLATE from Early Espresso card stock. Cover the back with
Adhesive Sheets before cutting. Use the Love You More Than dies. Take off the
backing and add between the sayings. You will ultimately need 3 of these words.
