Sweet Candy Canes


DiecutsJuly2014c
Good Morning how is everyone today? I'm over on the Memory Box Blog today with a FUN Christmas Card using the Sweet Candy Canes 98913 with shimmery red candy stripes.  The finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" a standard A2 card.
 
The first step is to cut the Candy Canes, out of white cardstock and then out of the red shimmer paper.  With detail scissors cut little strips of the red shimmer candy canes adhere to the white. If you like you can cut the strips on an angle for a more authentic Candy Cane look.  Don't forget to add the Ornament Hooks and Caps 98958  to turn the candy canes into ornaments.  I have glass ornaments that look like these on my tree every year they are some of my most treasured decorations to put on the tree.
 
The sentiments are Christmas from the Grand Merry Christmas 98938 the part that pops out and wishes is cut individually from Alphabet Soup 98795 with the black mirror card. The Christmas fits just perfect across and A2 card no matter which way you set up your card Landscape or Portrait and you can make another card with the remaining piece.
 
The entire card is done with just a bit of cutting and gluing.  The Bluebird Distress Dots with Christmas red is my favorite color combination for the Winter Holidays, I know again.  So the Bluebird Distressed Dots became my background and for an accent I have added some black mirror card tuxedo stripes.  The entire thing is mounted on a red card base.  They are almost yummy enough to eat don't you think?  
 
I hope you like it. Hope you have a Wonderful Day Today.  Thank You for stopping by.
