Berries & Chocolate....mmmmm

Every thing's better with a little Chocolate, eh??? I'm on a dry embossing kick so hopefully you fall in love with it just as much as I have. :) I dry embossed the berries and sanded them lightly, then trimmed them out. I embossed the leaves and chocolate dipping sauce separately and then mounted them to the front of the berries. My computer was used to create the sentiment, "chocolate" is actually printed in brown to give it a bit more meaning. *lol* I sanded the edges of the red background paper as well, it's from a DCVW solid texture stack and because it's a white core card stock it works for the sanding technique. (I think a lot of people call it the denim technique) I simply used the outline of the template to create the square border, you can actually make any size border with any brass template. I see a tutorial in my future explaining that one. *lol* And lastly I mounted the berries using dimensionals, I always like to do that with dry embossed images to make them pop a little bit more. :) You likes??
