I had so much fun creating this holiday card for you today! The Sweet Candy Canes Bundle, Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder (and dies) and the Sweetest Christmas 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper were used to create the card. Oh, and I’m in love with the Metallic Mesh Ribbon! It’s so light weight and sheer and perfect for this card!
The card base is in Garden Green, and I added a red and white polka dot print panel from the Sweetest Christmas 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper pack to the front of the card.
A piece of Garden Green cardstock was then embossed using the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder. I then used the detailed outline die that comes with the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder to die cut the detailed frame. The die used to cut the center sentiment label was used to die cut a piece of silver foil from the Silver Foil 12″ x 12″ Specialty Pack and this die cut rectangle was adhered to the center of the Garden Green embossed and die cut frame.
Okay, here’s the cool part! The candy canes were die cut using the two dies from the Candy Canes Dies set from a piece of paper from the Sweetest Christmas 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper! I love when Stampin’ Up! gives us the option to die cut images directly from the designer series paper! Two red and white candy canes were die cut from the DSP. the candy canes were crossed and adhered together with a small drop of glue, then adhered to the center of the Garden Green embossed and die cut frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Using a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink, then die cut the sentiment using the die which has two holes on either side. This die is actually made to fit over a real candy cane but I’m using the holes on either side of the sentiment label to weave some of the Metallic Mesh Ribbon through the holes. The sentiment label was adhered over the bottom of the crossed candy canes then the ribbon was lightly wrapped to the back side of the Garden green die cut frame and adhered with a small amount of Stampin’ Seal.
The Garden Green die cut frame was then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a bow from the Metallic Mesh Ribbon and secured the bow underneath the sentiment label using a Mini Glue Dot.
For the inside panel, I stamped a sentiment from the Sweet Candy Canes Stamp Set in Real Red ink. I also used the mistletoe greenery stamp to stamp mistletoe on the lower right and upper left corners of the panel using Garden Green ink. The same stamp was used to stamp mistletoe on the lower front of the envelope. A piece of the red and white polka dot designer series paper was adhered to the envelope front and I fussy cut around the flap to finish off the envelope.
This bright and cheerful card is sure to put a smile on the recipient’s face! This card was simple to make…I hope you give it a try!
