Hello and welcome to my blog  Today,  I am going to share with you a set of fun festive cards that could be used all year long.  I used the retiring Candy Cane Season Stamp Set for my card.  This is a very fun and versatile stamp set.  Everything depends on how you create your project.  You can take them from vintage (which is what candy canes remind me of Christmas as a child), to very modern.  Here’s a look at my card.  

I started out by stamping the candy canes in different colors in a row.  I picked a rainbow of colors; Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Blueberry Bushel, and Call Me Clover.  I stamped each one in a different one of these colors, for a fun and flirty card.  I thought it was very fitting to use the 2018-2020 In-Colors, since they are the perfect little rainbow.  All of these where stamped on Very Vanilla Cardstock.  In the gallery below you will find a closeup look at all five versions.  I’ve listed the color that I used in the caption of each image.  

Once I had everything stamped it was time to mount everything onto the mats and the card bases.  I picked the Thick very vanilla cardstock for the bases.  Each one was cut at 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.  I used the matching in-color cardstock for both the mats and the thank you die cut.

These cards look a little more complicated then you would think they are.  It’s just a matter of figuring out your pattern.  I started out by stamping each one in a row one color at a time.  The next one I would alternate between facing one way then flipping it around and going the other.  You will see how I created one of the cards in the video below.  The video you will watch was my YouTube Live from 12/4/18.  I do YouTube Lives every Tuesday afternoon at 3:30 PM CST, and Facebook Lives every Wednesday at 8:00 pm CST.
