Sweet Christmas

Break out the sweets and Christmas candy! More specifically, break out the sweet Candy Cane Christmas Specialty DSP. What makes it so special? It glitters! Notice the red bar on the DSP? It glitters. I love it. This pack of Specialty DSP features several glittery designs.  Another thing I love about this paper is the unconventional Christmas colors. I love making Christmas cards that go against the traditional red and green  or blue and white color schemes. The Candy Cane Christmas paper combines both of these traditional color schemes and then adds Blushing Bride to throw things off.

Stampin' Cita's Tips:
  • Colors used: Blushing Bride and Real Red. 
  • Stamp sets: Teeny Tiny Wishes and Jolly Bingo Bits 
  • Acessories: Scallop Border punch, 1' Circle punch, Dazzlin' Diamonds Stampin' Glitter 
  • Both stamp images come from the Jolly Bingo Bits stamp set, which is super awesome in that it contains so many cute and simple images. Keeping with the candy theme, I used the candy cane and peppermint candy images for this card. 
  • Use Versamark ink the candy cane image to stamp a quick background of candy canes on top of the card. 
  •  Stamp the peppermint candy image from the Jolly Bingo Bits stamp set on Whisper White in Real Red three times. Use the 1" Circle punch to punch out each image and then sponge some real red around the edges of the circle. Add some sparkle by gluing some Dazzlin' Diamonds on the peppermints. Adhere the peppermints to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals
