Countdown to Confetti: Lovey Words & Big Notes

Welcome, 'Fetti Fans to Day 1 of the January Release for Reverse Confetti


Reverse Confetti will be doing monthly releases now, 
starting with Countdown to Confetti posts on the 5th of each month
and the release on the 8th.
This month is a fun release, full of love & cuteness,
with four new stamps sets & seven new Confetti Cuts!

Today, we are introducing two fabulous new sets:
a large-scale sentiment set called Big Notes  
and sentiment stamp set called Lovey Words with coordinating Confetti Cuts.

I combined all three of these to make my card.


I thought the "all you need is love and chocolate.... lots and lots of chocolate" sentiment
was so adorable that I had to create a chocolate bar for my card!

I started by diecutting some dark chocolate cardstock with the inside die
from the Gift Card Holder Tag Confetti Cuts and then scored it so it looked like pieces in a bar.
I cut off the bottom and wrapped it in aluminum foil.


I created the wrapper by repeatedly stamping the "xox" stamp from Big Notes 
in pink on my sweet blush background.
Then, I stamped the Lovey Words in dark chocolate and added the "love" Lovey Words Confetti Cuts.
I wrapped the cardstock around my "bar" and adhered it to my card back.

  

     

That's it for today!
There will be a $15 gift certificate up for grabs, so you make sure you leave a comment 
on each sneak peek post for each designer to increase your chances of winning!
Comments will close at noon CST on January 7th and the winner will be 
announced at 5pm on January 7th.

Want another chance to win? 
Head on over to Reverse Confetti's Facebook page and 
look for the graphic posted there.

Thanks for looking!
