It’s Thursday and time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I can’t wait to see what my teammates have created this week! I used the Sweet Candy Canes Bundle and the Decorated Pines Dies to create my card for today.
We have a color challenge for the Hop today and I used Sweet Sorbet, Basic White, Pool Party and Garden Green as the colors for my card.
Using the largest die from the Candy Canes Dies set with the diagonal stripes, I die cut a panel in Garden Green and Sweet Sorbet. The Garden Green panel was adhered to a Basic White Thick cardstock base “right side” down. The Sweet Sorbet panel was adhered over top of the Garden Green panel and was adhered “right side” up to create a really cool looking crosshatch pattern on the card front.
Using the candy cane dies from the Candy Canes Dies set, I die cut two candy canes from the Sweetest Christmas 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. I chose the candy canes with Sweet Sorbet, Garden Green and Pool Party stripes. Crossing the candy canes and using a combination of liquid glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals the candy canes were adhered to the card front.
Several pine boughs were die cut in Garden Green and Pool Party cardstock using the Decorated Pine Dies. The pine boughs were slipped under either side of the candy canes and adhered to the card front.
A sentiment from the Sweet Candy Canes Stamp Set was stamped in Sweet Sorbet ink onto a piece of Basic White cardstock and die cut using the 2nd to smallest die from the Stylish Shapes Dies set. Another circle was die cut from the Garden Green dotted print from the Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper and the sentiment label was adhered to this circle. The sentiment label was then adhered to the card front.
An additional sentiment was stamped onto a white panel in Sweet Sorbet ink. I also stamped a partial candy cane onto the bottom of the panel along with two greenery sprigs. The panel was adhered to a Garden Green mat then adhered to the inside of the card.
To finish off the card front I tied a double bow using Sweet Sorbet Metallic Woven Ribbon and adhered the bow above the sentiment label. One red Festive Pearl was also adhered to the top of the sentiment label.
The candy cane image and greenery were stamped onto the bottom left of the envelope front and a piece of coordinating designer series paper was adhered to the envelope flap and I trimmed around the flap to finish off the envelope.
