Stampin' Up!s Sweetest Christmas Suite Really is the Sweetest Collection Around!

Do you love Candy Canes at Christmas? I sure do! If you need some right now, our friendly online retailer Amazon has some available now.

Stampin' Up! has delivered a beautifully Sweet Suite you can do so much with. Starting today and two more days, I'll be sharing a total of three fun card ideas using this Suite. The best part is this Suite has no calories unlike real Candy Canes!

The Sweet Candy Canes Bundle isn't used in today's card, but I wanted to introduce it to you. Lots of great sentiments and there are so many possibilities with the large diagonally striped die. And the die that has two holes in it, fits a full size candy cane perfectly! A great way to give personalized treats so easily!

Sweetest Christmas 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper (DSP)
Candy Canes and striped options galore!

Today's card is a combination of new and retired products, but I wanted to start off simple and go more advanced as the days pass. The shopping links below will help with what is new and retired.

You will be able to get 9 cards from one of the red striped 12" x12" pieces of DSP when you cut it into 4" squares. Each square will be split apart a little later. Keep reading...

Real Red Cardbase is  cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored at 4-1/4".

Basic White cardstock layer - cut two pieces (one for front and one for inside of card) 4" x 5-1/4"

One 4" square of the DSP shown above. You will cut it with your paper trimmer diagonally along one of the stripes. I aimed for about an inch up from what would be the lower left corner.

LAY the two pieces, do not glue yet, on top of the Basic White piece so you will know where to stamp your chosen single line greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. (If you make a stamping mistake accidentally, you still have the other side of the Basic White cardstock to stamp on a second time without ruining the DSP.)

Once you have the greeting stamped to your satisfaction, then the DSP can be adhered to the Basic White cardstock layer.

Adhere the double layer to the Real Red card front. Also adhere the second piece of Basic White to the inside of the card for your personal message.

Cut a 24" piece of 3/8" wide Real Red ribbon and place it inside the card at the fold and bring the ends around to the front to tie your bow. I recommend having the fold facing you so your bow will be positioned similar to mine.

Add the Red Rhinestones as shown.

If you like to have a coordinated envelope flap, cut a piece 2-3/8" x 6" from another piece of matching DSP and adhere to exterior of the envelope flap and trim off excess with your paper snips.

The following products are retired:
