Stampin' Up! Hop sketch challenge

And here’s my card for this week. It uses the Sweet Candy Canes stamp set & Candy Canes Dies + Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 DSP as primary elements for the card.

This card began with the wonderful diagonal die cut from Candy Canes Dies, die cut from Basic White. I love this die!!! I then die cut the candy canes from the Sweetest Christmas DSP; stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sorbet ink on a Basic White scrap & die cut it; stamped the leaf bunch several times in Garden Green ink on another Basic White scrap and die cut- all using the Sweet Candy Canes Bundle. I cut a length of the Real Red Ribbon from the Ribbon Combo Pack and slipped it through the sentiment banner, adhering on the back with glue dots. I adhered the diagonal die cut to a panel of Sweetest Christmas DSP with dabs of liquid glue around the edges. I added the candy canes with liquid glue just on the end where I would eventually place the sentiment banner & dimensionals (a couple of them under the ‘hook’ of each candy cane.) I wrapped the Baker’s Twine around three fingers, twisted it and added it to the back of the sentiment banner, adhering with Stampin’ Seal on the backside of the banner. The twine is from the 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine Pack in Sweet Sorbert. The banner was adhered with several dimensionals to give it stability. A couple of the stamped leaf branches were added with liquid glue.

For the inside I adhered one of the die cut candy canes from Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 DSP to the top of a Basic White panel, then stamped the sentiment from Sweet Candy Canes stamp set in Sweet Sorbet ink. The die cut candy cane used the Candy Canes Dies. I stamped the sentiment from Sweet Candy Canes stamp set in Sweet Sorbet ink near the candy cane. I adhered this Basic White panel to a piece of the Sweetest Christmas DSP – same as the card front – then into the Garden Green card base. I added two of the Sweet Sorbet Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins to either side of the stamped sentiment.

For the envelope: more of the same Sweetest Christmas DSP on the flap and the sentiment on front is from Sweet Candy Canes stamp set stamped in Sweet Sorbet ink – going around the corner :O)
