My daughter recently started college and loves it when mom sends her mail.  My fall hop project includes a handmade card, coordinating envelope and spruced up candy bar for those late nights of studying.

To create the “wrap” for the King Sized Hershey Bar, I cut Island Indigo card stock to 6 x 5 1/2″.  Using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool, I scored the 5 1/2″ side at 1 3/8″, 1 3/4″, 3 3/4″ and 4 1/8″.  A touch of Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper and fun cropped shapes (Autumn Accents Bigz Die) turn the yummy treat into terrific!

The Orchard Harvest Designer Series rectangles measure 1 5/8″ x 7/8″.  The Early Espresso mat is 1 3/4″” x 1″.  The Raspberry Ripple 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon found it’s home in the grooves of the maple leaf.

A coordinating A2 card sized envelope (also used Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper) pulls everything together.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Simply Scored Diagonal Plate.  Here’s my Simply Scored Diagonal Plate Envelope Chart for the details.

    Mary-this is wonderful! I can never decide which DSP to use when I get a new package, and the idea of using 5 selections works for me! Not to mention that it is a good use for scraps from other projects (because we cannot discard even the smallest scraps of DSP). Thank you.

  31. Hello, Mary: I love this card, lovely colors and that chocolate bar wrapper is fabulous. I’m sure your little girl will love receiving this gifts from her mom. She will be the envy of her college friends.

  32. I certainly would have been thrilled to have received this from my Mom while in college! Beautiful card, envelope and what is not to like about the wrapped candy bar! In my CASE file, this will go….. Hugs
