Hi Stampers, last Thursday during our Happy Stampers Blog Hop I shared my card using a sketch challenge. I made two cards for the hop, not knowing which one I would use. I ended up showing you the “Star of Light” card. Today I wanted to share with you the other card I made using the “Candy Cane Christmas” stamp set utilizing the same sketch.
Stampin Up “Candy Cane Christmas”:
Here is the sketch:
This sketch was from last weeks Happy Stampers Blog Hop.
Here is the recipe:
Card base: Whisper White 5-1/2 x 8-1/2. scored at 4-1/4
Mat: Real Red, 4 x 5-1/4
DSP mat: Candy Cane Lane, 3-7/8 5-1/8 x
Panel mat: Real Red, 3-5/8 x 1-5/8 (cut 3)
Panel art piece: Whisper White ( Cut 3), 3-1/2 x 1-1/2 strips
I adhered the large red and DSP mat to the card base.
I stamped my 3 small art piece panels using the Candy Cane Christmas in Early Espresso, Real Red and Crumb Cake inks. I then mounted those 3 pieces to the real read mats and added dimensionals I then adhered it to the DSP mat, followed by the red mat. Before I attached this to the main card I wrapped three stands of the Candy Cane Lane Bakers Twine around the bottom front of the card. I then attached that whole piece with dimensionals to the Whisper White card base.
The Gingerbread Couple:
I stamped the Gingerbread couple using the Cookie Cutter Christmas s tamp set on Whisper White card stock with Early Espresso ink and punched them out with the coordinating Cookie Cutter Punch. I did the same for the little red bow using Real Red ink and the punch. I adhered the lady gingerbread first and then put some dimensonals on the boy gingerbread to have him pop a bit.
I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 1/2 x 3-1/2 and stamped the sentiment from the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set in Early Espresso.
The Final Touches:
Using the Candy Cane Lane Bakers Twine I tied a triple bow and attached it to the front of the card. Pearls were added to the center of the snowflakes and rhinestones were added to the middle of the mitten.
