CCMC427 Candy Cane Christmas

It’s Thursday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge!  It’s a fun sketch for you to try!  Play along and upload to your blog or Pinterest or other gallery!


And here’s what I did.  Not too much stamping on here!  The gingerbread house is cut out of the DSP!  You can get a bunch from one sheet!  This would be a FAST card to make for your Christmas cards!



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Real Red cardstock, folded in half.
  • On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White cardstock.
  • The DSP is cut to 2 x 5-1/4, then an angle cut out of it, and adhered to the bottom.
  • A 1/4 x 5-1/4 coordinating strip of DSP was placed across the bottom.
  • The house was cut out of the Candy Cane Lane DSP and adhere in the V of the cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The greeting from Candy Cane Christmas Stamp Set was stamped with Real Red Ink on an angle.
  • Finally, some Real Red Baker’s Twine was tied in a bow and adhered with a Mini Glue Dot.


OK…make sure to stop by Create with Connie and Mary and see what the rest of the Thursday Challenge Team did with the sketch this week!

This is adorable! The dsp gingerbread house is such a great focal point, but all you little add-ons, like the twine and washi tape make this extra special!

Sweet! Aaargggh, I cannot believe I haven’t purchased this DSP. I will need to remedy this right away! This is a great card for a make and take.
