Advent Calendar #22

Welcome to day 22 of the BnW advent calendar.
First of all I want to congratulate julieprice3
who is the winner of the advent calendar day 21.
Please contact Summer to claim your prize. 
Remember to let her know what stamp you would like to have.

Today I want to show you how to make a chocolate box card.
You need: cardstock, pattern paper, glue, gelantine, spellbinders dies, score pal, a paper cutter, pencil, scissor and embelissments
I begin with the card. 
Use a cardstock 24,5cm x 15cm
Score at 11cm and 13,5cm.
Fold the card
 Now it is time for making the box inside the card.
Use a cardstock 22cm x 20cm.
On the longest side of the box I score at 8cm, 10cm, 18cm and 20cm
 On the shortest side of the box I score at 2cm, 4cm, 16cm and 18cm
 Here is a picture of the scored lines (I have used a pencil to draw the lines so you can see them better)
 Then cut of the cornes as you can see in the picture above.
 I distress all the edges on the box and the card.
 I also distress the pattern papers I am going to use inside the card, before I glue the parts together.
 Then it is time to make the window in the box, inside the card. 
I use a spellbinder dies as a template and draw the shape on the pattern paper.
Then I use a scissor to cut ut the window.
 Here you can see the pattern paper after I have cut out the window.
 I cut a square in the box and glue a plate of gelantine to make a window.
 Glue the pattern paper over the gelantine window. Glue the box together, and put it inside the card. 
Remember there has to be an opening at the top of the box, so you can put chocolate inside.
 Then it is time to decorate the front of the card.
 Here is the inside of the card. I have used spellbinder dies to make a frame so you can write greetings. 
I have also cut out a frame and placed it over the gelantine window
Thank you for joining the advent calendar.
Welcome back tomorrow.
