A Candy Cane Christmas Sneak Peek

by Joanne James24. August 2016 07:01

I have another Christmas card to share today, using this week's sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch and some scrummy new product as my inspiration:

Here's my card:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

Candy Cane Lane - The new Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper was the inspiration for my card today. This pack has some great festive patterns in red, white, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso, with everything from candy canes to gingerbread. I used one of the designs for my main DSP panel and fussy cut a trio of the shapes and popped them on dimensionals for the triangle elements of the sketch.

A Sweet Season - My sentiment comes from the co-ordinating 'Candy Cane Christmas' stamp set, which contains a few sentiments and is great for tags and treat packaging. I stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed it in white onto my Real Red card base.

Candy Cane Twine - To finish, I added some candy cane baker's twine - this twine is white with a red metallic twist - and tied in a sweet bow.

More festive loveliness and a great sketch - the paper does all the hard work on this one!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

The sun is shining here in the UK - we are off to the park for the day with a picnic. Back tomorrow with this week's challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary; until then, happy stampin'!
