Going back to the products in the Sweetest Christmas suite of products and today I’m focusing on the Sweet Candy Canes Bundle. I featured this bundle in a post on the 2nd day of “Christmas in July” so how fitting to use it again on the 2nd to last day of Christmas in July. This time I wanted to try the striped background die in the Sweet Candy Canes bundle:
This background die measures 4″ x 5 1/4″ and paired with the Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 DSP, you get a perfect background! The reason I made two cards is, I die cut the striped background die in Basic White and Garden Green, and then used the cut-out pieces to fill in some of the negative piece. On the red card, I used white layering pieces and on the green card I used thin green layering pieces on the white background. Here’s a closer look:
I added a little ribbon and two little evergreen (or are they mistletoe?) to the candy canes and embossed the banner and greeting from the Christmas Banners bundle in white embossing powder. So pretty – and these came together pretty quickly!
Stop by tomorrow for the last post in my Christmas in July series! Good night! Kelly
