ATC's and chocolates for Mom

I am over at the Art Neko Blog
with these ATC's, but I want to share them on my own blog too.
These 3 little cards belong together, because together they make
the word MOM.

I created a serie of atc’s for Mother’s Day with some of the images from the Chikanobu Collage Sheet 3. I cut them to the size of 2 x 3 inch so i could use them on the atc’s in combination with some other images. After mounting the iimages to the background (black paper) and an atc card (green, blue and yellow 3,5 x 2,5 inch), I started stamping the teacups, the dragonfly medallion and the Oda Nobunaga Family Crest. All the stamping is embossed with black or gold embossing powder.
The letters that make MOM are die cuts from a Tim Holtz die and glued to the cards after I added a little ink all around each letter. Below you can see them more close up. especially if you click on the picture.

Now what is a card without a little gift on Mother's Day?!
So I added a little decorated chocolate box.
The sentiment is from Stampin'Up!
and the teapot and cups from Art Neko
as well as the ribbon. 

The template for the box is NOT my own
and I wanted to share the link to where I found it,
Unfortunately I cannot find the website anymore.

After cutting the template and adding double sided tape

I added the cocolate before closing the box.
I should have stamped the sentiment before closing the box,
but now I stamped it on paper. The word MOM is done by hand.
The ribbon is folded around the box and taped with red - strong - tape.
The teapot is embossed with blue embossing powder.

An easy project is you need a quick (late) idea.
Tomorrow I have another chocolate box!

Thanks for looking and 
have a creative day!

Hele mooie trio is dit Hetty. Ook speciaal, MOM kan niet missen en is dan ook geweldig. Tsja een klein presentje hoort er ook bij in een heel mooi doosje. Al met al: Geweldig......!

liefs van Fenny
