Happy Monday! So…I realized something yesterday while we were at Sam’s. Wayne said…”It’s Sunday and everyone is at Sam’s shopping!”. I did a little high-level, very sophisticated math in my head and realized…THANKSGIVING is like…tomorrow!
Well – not EXACTLY – but…close! A week from Thursday! I ordered my ham to pick up next week and then promptly decided (apparently!) that I was “ready”. So…nothing to worry about or prep for – obvs! Sheesh!
Know what’s RIGHT AFTER THANKSGIVING!?
Friday! Bwahahahaha! YOU thought I was going to say CHRISTMAS!
But – it IS right smack around the corner so…today’s card is spot on! It uses the Candy Canes and Sweet Little Stockings stamp set – and is SOOO easy that if you’re behind (I am so NOT behind! 😂😂😂😂) and need some quick cards – I’ve got you covered. Take a look-see!
This sweet layout was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
This one goes fast so….pull out your Stamparatus and…let’s roll!
I started with a piece of Basic White that I matted on Shaded Spruce for the card front.
Another piece of Basic White went into the Stamparatus and I stamped it with the Candy Canes stamp in Real Red.
I used the next-to-largest Scalloped Contours die to cut out a rectangle and adhered it to the middle of the card front with Liquid Glue.
Using Stampin’ Seal, I adhered a length of Real Red 3/8″ Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon across the panel.
I stamped the sentiment from Sweet Little Stockings in Real Red on a strip of Basic White and matted the strip on Shaded Spruce cardstock.
Then I popped it over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added a Shaded Spruce gem from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done.
Who AM I!?? 😳😳😳 Surely….this can’t be a Mary card!!?
On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment and a candy cane, from Sweet Little Stockings, in Real Red on a Basic White panel. Then I added another Shaded Spruce Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewel.
I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Shaded Spruce mat and into my Thick Basic White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got a few Sweet Little Stockings candy canes on the front…
…and one…single…yummy…cane on the envelope flap!
Et Voila! Red – White – Green. Classic! Real Red Candy Canes! A Sweet Little Stockings sentiment and…how handy that there was a CANDY CANE in that set, too!?
I hope you like!
