Step 12: Adhere Card to Base

Adhere the entire card front piece to the base, with the fold at the top. You're done!

Note: because the base of this card is made with brown cardstock, you'll need to either write in it with a light colored pen, or adhere a piece of light colored cardstock to the inside to write on.
I know I am years and years late, but I love this!! What mint cardstock did you use I have been searching for that color everywhere!! Let me know thanks!!
I can think of a way to make an edible version of this...white chocolate, mint flavor, green food coloring, and chocolate curls. Melt white chocolate, add in flavor and color, pour into lined cookie sheet and let cool slightly. Add chocolate curls in desired pattern and let set up fully. After set shave off any curls standing higher than the white chocolate base. Carefully remove from cookie sheet, add any additional decorations desired and ta da. Seems like it should work in theory at least... :-)
wait... you cant eat it? you deceived me?! ROAR!
I WANT CHOCOLATE! RAWR!!!! YOU DECIEVED ME! RRAAWWRR!!!!!!!! SCENTS ARE STUPID! *rawr shakes the whole city* (ponders ideas for an edible card) I will see if I make an edible card when valentines day contest comes! I shall go to conquer my dream, AWAAAAAY! (takes off)
scents are only stupid if they're on some things. for instance, they aren't stupid when combined with STICKERS!!! SCRATCH AND SNIFF FTW! but really, a cardscent just implies candy inside, and when that turns out to be a lie the only alternative is facepunchination.
God,it's beautiful~~
ya, i thought it was made of real chocolate at first, would have been better that way, but still an excellent card
yah, its cute but its would have been better if its edible
Soooo pretty!
i too thought it would be edible card. still very well done. guess i'll have to carve a hunk of chocolate, melt in some green candy melts to it and then give the chocolate card to someone. Boy will that take a lot of time. maybe i'll make the paper version after all.
Yes Mint chocolate chip ice cream is the best, but the card would be even better if you could eat it.
Oh dang- I clicked on this thinking it was a "card" made out of minty chocolate...bummer. Still, it's a nice card. Too bad it's not edible though.
I just wanted to compliment you - this card looks fantastic - you almost make it look like something I could do. I am queen of having all the parts - buying tools and supplies and it never comes out beautiful like you guys can make it. Your directions are clear and to the point, its sooooo good. I am off to make my attempt!
What a compliment - thank you so much! Clear directions that inspire people to create is my goal! I'd love to see what you make, too. You can post it here or on my blog: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.paperwoods.com">Paper Woods</a>. Also, if you want any ideas on how to use specific tools or supplies that you own, feel free to ask! <br/><br/>Thank you!<br/>
you... can't eat it?
Sure, you can eat it, it just might not taste that great =/<br/><br/>A REAL mint choc. chip card would be the awesomeness!<br/>
I was totally thinking the same thing. But i don't see why it's not feasible to make an edible version: heat up some mint green, mint flavoured white chocolate, spiral on (or marble) some dark chocolate. If you started with a thin sheet of chocolate, or made your own in the bottom of a shallw pan, it seems pretty reasonable. You could write on it with coloured chocolate or icing, ice on a little flower or better yet stick on an edible blossom. Delicious potential!
I'm salivating just thinking about it!! I think I need to go buy some chocolate...
what a gorgeous card, and a very well built instructable too.
Cool! Mint chocolate chip ice cream with maraschino cherries on top is my absolute favorite, so I'd recommend a flower dyed with Red #5. The embossing looks awesome, but I don't have one of the machines. Would you recommend just using a stamp to ink the design, or are the raised features really worth going an extra mile or two?
A red flower is a great idea! I toyed with inking or chalking my white flower, or even just using a pink flower, but liked the way it looked with just the green, brown, and white colors.<br/><br/>I personally <strong>love</strong> the look, and especially the <em>feel</em> of dry embossing. It adds a lot in my opinion, but this card would absolutely be just as great without it. If you don't have a die-cutter you can use the traditional dry embossing method I describe in my previous reply, but just using a stamped image would look great too. It would take a lot less time to make as well!<br/>
Very nice Instructable. Is there a way to achieve the embossing effect without the use of the, what appears to be very expensive, die-cutting machine?
Absolutely. You can use the traditional dry embossing technique that uses a brass template, a light source (a light box, or a window on a sunny day), and a stylus. You won't be able to find the exact same swirl pattern in a bass template, but you can get pretty close, like <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.thestencilcollection.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=Stencil1&Product_Code=RM22&Category_Code=B">this one</a> which would create a similar feel. Just tape the template to the window or light box, then tape your paper on top of it and run your stylus around the edges of the stencil (which you should be able to see through the paper). This obviously takes a lot more time than using a die-cutting machine to emboss, but it's how I always did it up until I got my die-cutter as a gift this Christmas!<br/>
