Stampin’ Up! Candy Canes Sweetest Christmas Banners Christmas Card

Good morning!  Happy Tuesday and happy….NEW SALE-A-BRATION Goodies Day!

Yep – you heard me right!  Starting today – when you place your orders over $50 – you’ll have a NEW set of freebies to pick from – in addition to the ones you’ve been picking up so far!  Read down below for the list – I think you’re going to be excited! – and… start building your stash!

Now – my card today is another Christmas card (I know –  I know!) and it uses the sweet Candy Canes Dies and the coordinating Christmas Banners Bundle.  Yes – these all work together really nicely!  Take a look-see:

Stampin' Up! Candy Canes Sweetest Christmas Banners Christmas Card

I started by cutting two Basic White cardstock panels using the large stripe die in the Candy Cane Die set.  Then I adhered them to a Basic White mat with Liquid Glue.  I adhered the first one “upside down” and the second one “right side up” to create the crosshatching that you can see!

The die set has two candy cane dies that perfectly cut images in the Sweetest Christmas DSP – and I cut out two of them!

Using the dies in the Christmas Banner die set – bundled with the Christmas Banners stamp set, I cut a couple of Garden Green pine boughs and a few Pool Party leaves.  I also cut a couple of white leaves from the Real Red & White 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper.

I stamped two leaves from Christmas Banners in Garden Green on a piece of Basic White and cut them out with their matching Christmas Banner die.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Christmas Banners banner image in Garden Green and the sentiment in Sweet Sorbet – then cut it out with the die in the Christmas Banner die.

I started my collage with the two candy canes – but first I did a quick layout to determine where they would sit on the card front – and where the sentiment would sit over the top of them.  Using my Paper Snips – I cut the ends off of the two candy canes.  Then I adhered the TOPS of the candy canes to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I added the leaves and boughs with more Liquid Glue and popped the sentiment over the top of the collage.

Using Liquid Glue – I tucked the ends of the candy canes back under the sentiment banner – that made the canes appear LONGER than they actually are!

I did a quick little video on how to make this one if you’d like to see it – and you can see what I mean with this step!  Click right here!

I added some Sweet Sorbet Sequins from the Adhesive Backed Seasonal Sequins and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped two of the sentiment words from Christmas Banners in Sweet Sorbet on a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I stamped the pine bough from the set in Garden Green.  I added a green Seasonal Sequin next to the sentiment – yes, I know it’s a different green, but…I like it!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic White mat and into my Pool Party card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Christmas Banners pine bough on the front…
