Hello Honey Bee friends! Are you as totally amazed as I am by the awesome new Holiday Wishes release? There are so many gorgeous products that I can’t wait to create with! Today I’m sharing my card featuring the new Lovely Layers: Candy Canes!
I let this gorgeous patterned paper from the new Winter Wonder paper pad be my inspiration for my card’s color palette. I love this shade of blue for winter/holiday cards! I die cut two each of the Lovely Layers: Candy Canes layers from a light blue, dark blue, and white sparkle cardstock. Next I die cut the greenery in this set from two shades of green cardstock. I added shading to the greenery with blender brushes and Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness Distress inks.
The berries and bow are also die cut from the same white glitter cardstock. I adhered the layers of the candy canes with Bee Creative glue.
I used the largest Sweet Stacks: Rectangles to die cut the patterned paper from the Winter Wonder paper pad and glued it to my A2 card base. Next I die cut vellum with the Decorative Star Layering Frames largest die. But don’t adhere it to the card base yet!
I arranged the Lovely Layers: Candy Canes elements and then used Bee Creative glue to adhere each piece to the vellum. I only added a few dots of glue to each piece so the vellum wouldn’t buckle much. I did use a few foam squares at the top of the upper candy cane to support it over the other pieces.
Of course, my wintery Christmas card had to have lots of extras! Before I adhered the vellum to the card, I splattered white paint all over it and the candy cane and greenery. Then I added some beautiful iridescent chunky glitter to the greenery. If you don’t have that glitter, Clear Rock Candy glitter would be beautiful too!
After the glitter was dry, I added drops of glue to the back of the vellum, hiding the drops behind the elements of the card. Then I attached it to the card and let it dry.
I stamped the sentiment from the Mini Messages: Holiday stamp set with Stormy Sky Distress Oxide ink. Using my MISTI allowed me to stamp it a few times for a good impression. After I cut it out with a die from the Mini Messages Banners Honey Cuts, I added foam tape to the back to adhere it to my card.
A few gem stickers from the Holiday Wishes stickers finished it off with a bit more sparkle!
I love all the sparkle; and if you’d like to see it even better, check out the reel I’ll have posted very soon over on my Instagram!
I hope you’ve found more inspiration here for the Holiday Wishes release! Thank you so much for stopping! Have a wonderful and crafty day!
