Cardmaking

C for Candy

Hi crafty people!  How are you all doing?  Our spring weather continues today, although I understand it’s going to get colder again very soon, so we are just enjoying it while we can.  Today we took the morning off and went to a local park to do the snowdrop spectacular walk and it was stunning.  We even say a couple of roe deer but I wasn’t quick enough to get a photograph.  We treated ourselves to brunch before my husband headed off to the office and I went to drop off orders for customers at the post office.

 

It was a lovely start to our day.  This chilled out blog post is sharing a card for a couple of challenges (ABC Christmas Challenge and Alphabet Challenge).  I’m trying to get a few Christmas cards made for my 2019 stash every month.  This card used the above challenge prompts for C for Candy and X for xtra bling!

I used the candy canes stamp from the Sweet Christmas set by Clearly Besotted.  I stamped and heat embossed a few of these using the Wow red glitter powder then fussy cut them out.  Then I cut a ring to be the base of my wreath using two nesting circle dies.  I used a holly border die which was gifted  to me (I think it is a spell binders die) and cut several holly sprigs.  Then I added some small red gems for the berries and layered them onto the wreath before adding some candy canes.  I then used some 3d tape to adhere the wreath to a white square and then layered it up on the red and then patterned paper.

To finish it off I stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) and stuck in a couple of the left over candy canes.

The sun was so bright it was hard to capture the bling on the card, but I think it’s a little clearer in this picture.

I hope you are having a lovely Tuesday whatever you are up to.  Thanks so much for visiting my blog.
