Candy Canes Galore with Sweetest Christmas Suite

Are you falling in love with the Sweetest Christmas Suite yet? I hope today's "sweet" card will encourage you do to so.

Like yesterday's Christmas Card layout I shared, today's is a little more advanced but still easy to make multiples of, to share with family and friends on a tray of cookies or fudge.  This card has torn Designer Series paper edges, die cut glimmer candy canes, ribbon wrapped around the candy canes and tied in a pretty bow, plus stamping directly on the card base.

Shall we get started?

Cut Real Red cardstock 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", score at 4-1/4"

Stamp greeting in lower right corner of card front in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

With the Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper (DSP), cut 3" x 6" polka dot strip and a 2" x 6" red and white candy cane strip. Gently tear the edges as shown in the photo below trying to not remove too much DSP. Glue the two layers together. Position and adhere on card front above the greeting. Trim off excess overhang on both sides.

Using the Candy Cane Dies, cut one white candy cane from a 2" x 5" piece of white glimmer paper. Repeat with red glimmer paper using the opposite direction die. Adhere the two candy canes together where they cross. Using Mini Dimensionals put some at the curved head of the cane and at the opposite end, but NOT in the middle because that is where the ribbon will go under and through.

With a 12" piece of Real Red ribbon slide an end under the candy cane combo and tie a lovely bow. Trim the ribbon ends in at an angle.

Add embellishments of your choice by the greeting.

Last step, add a 4" x 5-1/4" Basic White cardstock layer to the inside of the card for your own personal message for the holidays.

If you'd like a matching envelope, decorate your  Basic White Envelope flap with a 2-3/8" x 6" piece of matching Designer Series Paper adhered to the flap and trim off the excess with your paper snips.
