Candy card

I know it seems awfully late in the month to be thinking about cards, but this one is a little different; not an ordinary card that you would mail. This one is a candy card. I like to have a few of these types of things already done in case of unexpected drop ins etc. And who doesn't like candy, right?

It's a whole lot simpler than it looks too. Maybe one of the quickest cards I have ever made, in fact. Just a few stamps, a few dies, a little foam tape, and done.

The Tim Holtz stamp and die set in this vintage Christmas theme is so awesome. I love vintage, I love Tim Holtz products, and I super love vintage Christmas! This Basic Grey paper from the Dasher Christmas line from a few years ago seemed the perfect fit with it's retro dots.

So to match back to the colors in the paper, I used Distress ink colors Fired Brick and Peeled Paint on the ornaments and holly sprigs. The best part....these are dies!!!! No fussy cutting! I {heart} dies...as if you didn't know. ;)

The Santa is so perfect. He reminds me of all the images I see from the 50s. LOVE. And the sentiment as well is from that same set. And again, DIES! The candy wrap and card window are also dies. These you can find at My Creative Time. Super quick card that I really love.

and oh yeah.....jolly Santa even WOBBLES!!! Go Santa, go santa. LOL!

Well peeps, unless I get all my baking done in record time, this may be the last project before Christmas, though I do still have a few ideas that I'm hoping I'll have time to share. Regardless, I hope you have enjoyed all my crafty fun and will try some of these quick and easy, last minute projects yourself. Thank you so much for coming by each day to see what I've been up to in the Studio. ♥
