Good morning! I’ve a fun Christmas card for you today. Why Christmas? Well, it takes me a bit to make all my cards for Christmas mailing AND because the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog goes l-i-v-e for customers to order on Jul 1. And who doesn’t need inspiration? Here ya go…

Sweet Candy Cane.1

What’s more traditional than red & white & candy canes? The DSP is called Sweetest Christmas and it’s a wonderful mix of Real Red, Garden Green, Pool Party & Sweet Sorbet. These candy canes are stamped in Real Red ink on a Basic White panel & die cut with the Candy Canes Dies. With dimensionals on the back they are layered on a circle of Lovely Layers Vellum, die cut with the Stylish Shapes Dies and heat embossed with this sentiment from the Sweet Candy Canes stamp set. How did I do that? Super easy…

  • With a Stamparatus, stamp the Vellum in Real Red ink.
  • Clean the stamp & ink again with VersaMark ink.
  • Sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder and set with the Heat Tool.
  • Once cool, die cut the Vellum

The circle of Vellum also has dimensionals under the candy canes :O) and is adhered to the two layers of Sweetest Christmas 12×12 DSP. These two layers were added to a panel of Basic White run through the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder. . The Basic White was adhered to Real Red card stock. A 3/8″ Garden Green ribbon from the Ribbon Combo Pack was wrapped around the card and adhered with a glue dot under the bow and all of it added to a Basic White Thick card base.

Sweet Candy Canes.inside

For the inside, the ‘greens’ were stamped in a circle with Garden Green ink. The is a distinctive stamp and I love the depth of color. I’m calling these mistletoe leaves :O) The sentiment from Sweet Candy canes stamp set is stamped in Real Red ink on Basic White and die cut with the second smallest circle of the Stylish Shapes Dies. This was added over the mistletoe leaves with liquid glue. The Basic White panel was adhered to a piece of Real Red slightly larger, then added to the inside of the card.

The envelope got more of the same Sweetest Christmas 12×12 DSP on the flap and a narrow strip added to the front of the envelope as well. And there you have it! It’s ready for mailing… in a few months :O)
