Joset Designs Silk Microfine Glitter Soft Finish Cardstock

Sweet Season’s Greetings

December 20, 2018

Hello! Welcome! Samantha here – Today I’m sharing a sweet Christmas card. Candy Canes are such an iconic Christmas lolly. I couldn’t resist taking the dies from the Hot Chocolate set and turning them in to the main feature on my card…Here is what I came up with!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Die cut 18 of the solid candy canes from white cardstock.

Step 2: Die cut 13 of the decorative (striped) overlays from red card stock.

(Tip: Alternatively try using Shimmer Sheetz or patterned paper)

Step 3: Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the front of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 4: Die cut 5 decorative overlay candy canes.

Step 5: Working one cane at a time, remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of True Red Silk Microfine Glitter. Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 6: Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the front of White Soft Finish Card stock measuring 7 cm x 4 cm.

Step 7: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer. Apply a generous amount of Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 8: Stamp the sentiment from Cute Winter Sentiments on a red cardstock retangle (6.5 cm x 3.5 cm).

Step 9: (Optional) Add machine stitched details to the sentiment.

Step 10: Adhere the assembled candy canes to a 5 x 7 inch white cardstock panel. Adhere rectangle glitter panel, followed by the sentiment. Embellish card with sequins and a twine bow.

Step 11: Adhere panel to a 5 x 7 inch card base.

I think the pops of glitter on some of the candy canes makes this card perfect for the festive season!

Happy crafting and hope you enjoyed my tutorial today.

Wishing everyone a wonderful and safe Christmas!

    What a great idea. I do love that candy cane and hot chocolate mug set and you’ve given me another idea on how to use the set!
