Can you believe it is almost a week into November?! The temperature outside doesn’t give us any clue that winter is on its way. After doing a little yard clean up and supervising my husband who so sweetly plowed my garden, I got some time in my crafty space today. I got some inspiration on todays card from Pinterest. I can get lost for hours their if I’m not careful! Do you have the same problem??
Today’s card is using the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper and Candy Cane Lane Washi Tape which is on page 5 of the Holiday Catalog. This paper is so yummy….yes, it really is!! It is of a heavier weight paper, as like that of our cardstock. It would work great for making little gift bags or gift tags too! I had to do very little stamping on this card as you can see, and it went together really pretty fast. I punched out the cute little ginger bread house with a 2 inch punch from a sheet of the paper as well as the peppermints with a 1/2 inch punch. I used my Layering Ovals Framelits and cut out a piece of real red cardstock for the background of my house and then added a piece of scalloped early espresso cardstock. A little trick I will share with you….
to save paper, I simply cut the scalloped circle out of the early espresso background cardstock. Since this card has a white top layer, you can’t even tell it’s their! Pretty clever huh!!I first stamped my sentiment in early espresso and then added my washi tape. I then ran the top part through my big shot using the softly falling textured impressions embossing folder. I popped the peppermints up on dimentionals as well as behind the early espresso scallop and behind the red circle. This gave it lots of dimension which set the card off beautifully. To add a little more detail, you could even add some clear wink of stella glitter to the snow on the house and chimney.
I hope you have enjoyed todays card! I will be posting more ideas on my blog this week using the Candy Cane Lane bundle. Check back again soon!
