Hershey's Kiss Card

Hello all!  I am back with another project for ScrappyDew.  As soon as I saw the Land of Candy set I fell in love with it!  My two older boys love to play Candy Land and this set matches it perfectly.  For this project I needed something a bit different.  I made a end of the year thank you gift for my son's kindergarten teacher.  I really don't know how she handles all 24 kids in his class, but she does!  I think anyone who has that many 5 and 6 year olds in their care deserves a little chocolate :)  Or a lot depending on the day.  So I used the adorable boy holding the chocolate candy from the Land of Candy set and made it into a card!  Then I doctored up a pint canning jar to coordinate and filled it with Hershey's kisses and hugs.
Here is the card that I made.  I tried to make the little boy look like my son.
The Hershey's kiss in the boy's hands is super shiny.  I coated it with 2 layers of glossy accents to give it a little something extra.
A close up of the details...dimension, dimension!  I tried a new technique of folding paper to make it look like pleated ribbon and made it into a border between the two designer papers.  The sentiment was a rub-on and I used a 1" punch and added an epoxy circle to the top.  The little boy is on pop dots as well to accommodate for the extra height of the pleated cardstock.
All the patterned papers were from DCWV's dots, stripes, and plaids stack.  I love that the colors are so bright and springy because we could use a little spring here...there is still snow on the ground!

Come back soon for a detailed look at the candy jar that I made to match!  To see the post with the jar, click here.
Have a wonderful day!
