SWEET CANDY CANES

090122 Candy Cane Green and Red frontI had so much fun with these cards.  The candy canes are found on the Sweetest Christmas DSP and simply need to be die cut.  And I absolutely love the diagonal die which I used in red and white adhered in opposing directions for  these cards.  This is the red and green sample.  The diagonal die is part of Candy Canes Dies set.

090122 Candy Cane Green and White frontThe green and white candy canes have the same layout as the sample above.  The Call Me Clover branches come from the Christmas Banners Dies.  I also found 2 pine branch dies that had been sent as a thank you from another company.  Using 3 of the double branches from the Christmas Banners Dies and 3 of the pine branches did the trick.  I adhered them in a fan format and plopped the candy canes down in the middle which concealed the joining points of the branches.  A bow and sentiment finished the card. 

090122 Candy Cane Red and White frontThe red and white candy canes card was my first sample.  I used the Tombo Mono Aqua Liquid Glue but didn’t like the stiffness the adhesive left. I used the Tombo Mono Multi Liquid Glue for the majority of the other cards. The ribbon embellishment can be red or green as can the sentiment from Toile Christmas. Note the 3 small gold leaves that are tucked in among the branches.

090122 Candy Cane msg layer DSP 2The message layer features a pine branch which can be die cut from the Christmas Banner Dies or stamped as we see on the envelope.  A strip of the Sweetest Christmas DSP can be used with the candy cane print as shown here, or the red and white striped pattern on the back as shown below.

As the candy canes colors are assorted, please have a second choice in mind.  There is no guarantee we can meet your request.  All the candy canes are darling but we are limited by the colors shown on the Sweetest Christmas DSP.
