Candy Cane Lane ~ You Are Sweet


Good Monday morning!  I hope you had a great weekend.  I was cleaning up after having finished designing for my classes later this month [you can check them out here] I had leftover pieces that didn’t make the cut. OMGosh!  I made a pun….Lol!  I have seen this (what I call a) double fold online and decided to gave it a whirl.  The Gumdrop design is from Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper.  It is on the base as well as the right front flap.  The Candies are also from the same Designer Series Paper pack.  What I love the most about this design (well two things)…first, is that I used leftover pieces sitting on the table AND second, that the design can be given any time of the year.  Yes!  “You are sweet” is a play on the candy designs.  Love it!

BASE:  I’ll admit I’m not much of a fan of Cucumber Crush but the Crumb Cake and Real Red called for a bright vibrant green.  The Cucumber Crush base is 4-1/4″ x 8-1/4″ scored at 5-1/2″.  The inside base and right flap are layered with Real Red and Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper Gumdrops design.

INTERIOR FOLD:  Real Red (3″ x 8-1/2″) folded in half.  Layered with Cucumber Crush and Whisper White.  The interior is layered with Whisper White.  Adhere centered on base with the fold on the left.

SENTIMENT:  The candies are from the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper.  They are clear embossed and then punched out.  Yup….that’s my first bit of shine.  (smile)  Then clear emboss Real Red cardstock and die cut “sweet” from Cupcake Cutouts Framelits.  Adhere “sweet” with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.  [TIP:  Reheat slightly to smooth the edges.]  Woohoo……that was the second bit of shine.  Lol!  Finally top “sweet” with “you are” from Sunshine Sayings stamp set in Early Espresso on Whisper White.

Thank you for popping by today.  I hope you enjoyed today’s design featuring leftovers and not a “Christmas” card.  Have a great Monday!
