I have a fun card to share with you featuring the Sweet Candy Cane Bundle.  Plus it can be used to hold a gift card as well!  That is a win!


Stampin' Up!, Sweet Candy Cane, Candy Cane Dies, Potted Succulent Dies, Celebrate Everything, Jackie Beers



This is an “oldy but goody” type fold.  In the past the matchbook cards were small and used for treats or a note.  I made this one full size.  And as I said at the top of the page, it allows for a gift card to be tucked inside.  Here is a view of the open card.


This view shows the closure flap at the bottom clearer than the closed card.  I stapled the flap about 1/2″ in from each end and approximately in the middle going top to bottom.  That allows the middle section to be open and room for a gift card to be slipped in.  I stapled first with the smooth part of the staple on the back.  The bumps are on the front and covered with card stock and DSP.  This card base is a piece of Pool Party cut to 4 1/4 X 11 and scored at 3/4 and 6 1/8.

Candy Cane

The sweet candy cane on the front is from the Sweet Candy Canes stamp set.  How appropriate is that?  LOL!!  If you are unfamiliar with this stamp set, it contains two candy canes facing opposite directions, leaves, and fun sentiments.  Plus the matching Dies are the Candy Canes Dies, and it contains the two directional candy cane dies.  This gives a lot more possibilities without trying to mirror stamp.

The sentiment, front and inside, are from the candy cane set as well.  And the pretty sentiment layer is a great find in the Potted Succulent Dies.  Sometimes I forget to look through other die sets for great shapes to use.  For a little more pop, I added two of the little leaves from the Candy Canes Dies on the front.  They are cut from Granny Apple Green card stock.  These little leaves are also stamps in the set, as are the ones next to the inside sentiment.  You get a lot of bang for your buck with this bundle!


I know I have been using this wonderful paper pack quite a lot lately.  But it is a huge pack and is great for cards for classes or multiples.  This piece is a favorite with all the bright colors to choose from to coordinate colors.  It is the Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper.  And there are “anytime” papers as well as all of the Fall holidays.   The strip of DSP across the closure flap is the flip side of this piece.  How convenient is that!!


Remember that the Seasonal Sale is ongoing through the 18th!  There are over 150 products from the Annual Catalog discounted here.  Plus you can get bundles cheaper than the regular bundle price by ordering the stamp and dies separately!  Please keep that in mind!  By clicking on the picture below you will get the full PDF of the sale items and the prices.
