Today’s card is super quick and simple, made from the Candy Cane Season bundle, Suite Season Specialty washi tape and Whisper White note cards and envelopes. I use this design frequently and love its simplicity. I was excited to find the candy cane stamp and new washi tape in the holiday catalog so I can make these cute holiday cards. You can never ever go wrong with washi tape.
To make the card, I started with a Whisper White note card, which at 5″ x 3 1/2″ is smaller than a standard card. I took strips of the cherry cobbler, green and red washi tape, and laid them across the card next to each other at a diagonal, then trimmed each strip even with both edges of the card. I then stamped “’tis the sweet season” with the stamp from Candy Cane Season in Garden Green on the lower right corner of the front of the card. How great is that sentiment paired with the candy cane?
Using the candy cane shaped stamp and Cherry Cobbler ink, I stamped the shape on a scrap ~3″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White. I then cropped the candy cane image with the Candy Cane Builder punch. I stamped the bow in Garden Green ink on a scrap ~3″ x 3″ piece of Garden Green card stock, and cropped it with the bow punch on the Candy Cane Builder punch..
I adhered the bow to the stem of the candy cane with a mini glue dot, then used several Stampin Dimensionals to pop the candy cane and the bow on the card. And… Done! That is it. That is all there is to this cute and colorful card.
This is a good project to make with friends, and it is also a good family project for crafters of all ages and skill levels. Give it a try – you will love it.
