Shabby Chocolate Christmas Card

Hello everyone, Elin here with another shabby Christmas contribution.
I have made a chocolate cover, where you can add a chocolate bar and give as a gift:
I have used bazzill to fold after this tutorial here. (the tutorial is in Norwegian, but with google translate you should be able to understand it ;). For this project I have used design papers from Maja Design's Vintage Summer Basic collection; 1891 and 1905.
My all time favorite in the LLC store : Bark hearts <3 have been given the main focus here. I have added a bit of shabby white frantage to them, and the text strips says "Warm Christmas Wishes Anno 2013".
The lovely flowers are also to be found in the store.
The inside of the chocolate card looks like this. On all pages I have used a stencil and applied snow-tex with a craft stick from Claudine Hellmut Studio Line. The consistency of  snow-tex is perfect for use with stencils, and it drys really quick. Together with frantage, it gives a great winter feeling to all kind of projects. Here I have used a background stamp from Inkido, and the stamp is from Kort & Godt, and is a Norwegian Christmas saying:
 "May your Christmas be good and give you peace of mind. May all problems become small and disappear. Let the days to come be good and kind. Merry Christmas to you and your family." 
Well, something like that ;) 
The lovely lace used behind the text can of course also be found at the store, and the same goes for the gorgeous bark star. 
Can you see the theme here? Wood looking papers, bark hearts and stars, white and earthy colors? ;)
