Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Cane Christmas

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. Well, here we are halfway through another week. I can’t believe the end of July is this weekend. I feel like July just started.

I made my 1st Christmas card for today. It cooled off a bit here, so I decided that I would make one. I have to get started some time, right? Also, we have out Stamp Camp Card Class next week and since everyone couldn’t be here last month for Christmas in July, we’re doing Christmas in August theme. The ladies will be making a version of this card next week. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Candy Canes Christmas 1

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Banners Bundle for my card today.

I started by cutting panels of Basic White and Real Red cardstock using the striped die from the Candy Canes Dies. I adhered the 2 panels together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to a Real Red card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the 2 candy cane images from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Cane Cling Stamp Set in Real Red Ink. I cut the candy canes out using my Candy Cane Dies. I adhered the candy canes together using a Glue Dot and adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. From a panel of Garden Green cardstock, I cut 5 of the pine boughs die from the Christmas Banners Dies. I adhered the pine boughs around the candy canes using Glue Dots. I tied a small bow using the Garden Green ribbon from the Real Red & Garden Green 3/8″ Ribbon Combo Pack. I adhered the bow to the candy canes using a Glue Dot.

I adhered a few of the Gold Holly Leaves to the pine boughs using Glue Dots. On the Basic White panel, I stamped the sentiment out using the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set. I cut the sentiment out using the Christmas Banners Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Candy Cane stamp set in Garden Green Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the candy cane images from the Sweet Candy Cane stamp set in Real Red Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat and then to the inside of the Real Red card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the candy canes from the Sweet Candy Cane stamp set in Real Red Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.
