Cappuccino Truffle Card
I love making these shutter tri fold cards! Here is one I made for a winter themed swap. I used the big shot die to make a pocket for a recipe for Cappuccino Truffles.
1 tablespoon boiling water
2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
2 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon divided
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
6 squares (1 ounce each) bittersweet chocolate chopped
2 tablespoons butter, softened
3 tablespoons sugar
In a small bowl, combine water, coffee and 1 tsp. cinnamon; set aside. In a small saucepan, bring cream just to a boil. Remove from the heat; whisk in chocolate and butter until smooth. Stir in coffee mixture. Press plastic wrap onto surface. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
In a small bowl, combine sugar and remaining cinnamon. Shape chocolate into 1 inch balls; roll in cinnamon sugar. Refrigerate for least 2 hours or until firm. - Taste of Home Magazine

*(I got the idea for the matted medallion on the front of the shutter card from Anne Matasci at http://mauistamper.wordpress.com. I got the idea for the snowflake in the middle of the medallion from Jamie Thornton at http://stampinwithjamies.blogspot.com.)
