What makes Valentine's Day special? CARDS and TREATS, of course and let's not forget LOVE! I'm sharing a few cards and treats that I made recently. Hope they get you into the mood to create something sweet! I embossed the card in white over red card stock and used Martha Stewart's Candy border punch (1st time using this candy punch--got it for 75% off at Michael's last year) and stitched the red paper clip onto the center, then I added the ric rac and staples. Voila!
Next one is a Hello card to a friend who loves music. I like the partial stamping on the card with the music notes for the background.
And now I am sharing the treats that I made. The recipe is from the latest February 2011 issue of Bon Appetit (see Cocoa Layer Cake )
Here's the yummy result
I also made this Cocoa Brownies with Browned-Butter and Walnuts from the same issueMy brownies almost look like the ones in the magazine cover! Here's a photo of dessert (Chocolate-dipped strawberries) I had at my friend's house last week. VERY decadent?
And that was not all...here are some more! Caramel Bars, Chocolate Truffles and Macaroons (straight from Paris!)Happy Valentine's Day!
