Sweet Candy Canes: Christmas In July

Crafty Collaborations Stampin Dreams Blog Hop

Sweet Candy Canes Bundle is the second in my 2022 Christmas In July Series. Today’s card is quick, easy and perfect for new stampers. I used the coordinating Designer Series Paper, Sweetest Christmas and die cut the candy cane images from the paper. While, the Deckled Rectangle dies were used for the layers, I am all about “using what you have.” If you don’t have the Deckled Rectangle dies, use the Stitched Rectangles or just cut two layers. Remember, these are ideas for inspiration…make it your own!

My card, Sweet Candy Canes Christmas Cheer is part of the Crafty Collaborations Stampin Dreams Blog Hop. The theme for today’s Hop is Christmas In July. At the end of my post, I hope you will take the time and “hop” along for some inspiration and ideas from talented demonstrators world wide!

Ready to get started? The video, below, demonstrates how to make the card with tips for papercrafting. Additionally, the measurements, instructions and supply list can be found further down in the post. I would love to hear from you! Leave me a comment below.
