Taylored Expressions Candy Cane Lane Cardmaking Kit Inspiration

Hi Friends & Happy Tuesday! Today’s the day for the release of July’s Cardmaking Kit and it’s Christmas in July with the Candy Cane Lane Cardmaking Kit! This is one of my absolute favorite Christmas-Themed Kits because (1) I Love anything Peppermint-Candy Cane (2) Holly is my favorite holiday image/decoration (3) There are Glitter Envelopes and the Perfect Envelope Seals for Card Designs & Envelopes.

Today I’m sharing FOUR cards, all using Frames & Panels created from the Rotating Gingham Stencil in Pink & Red. I started by ink blending Watermelon Ink to Pink Champagne Cardstock with the Rotating Gingham Stencil once for stripes and one rotating turn for Gingham. Then I used the Frame in Frame and Frame and Frame 2 Cutting Plates to cute out the striped and gingham panels for the Envelope Seal Cards and the Striped and Gingham Frames for the Merry Christmas Candy Candy & Happy Holly Days cards.

Envelope Seal Candy Cane Christmas Cards

For my first two cards, I used the Envelope Seals as the focal point by adhering them to a Sugar Cube Open Scallop Circle Die Cut which I attached to the Pink & Red striped and Gingham Panels. For the Happy Holidays Card, I attached the gingham panel to a white card panel and red card base. For the Merry Christmas, I added a white scallop frame and red card base. Super Simple Cards that can be easily mass produced with lots of holiday charm.

Merry Christmas Candy Cane Card

For the Merry Christmas Candy Cane Card, I used the Peppermint Kisses Stencil & Die Combo set to stencil the Candy Canes in Watermelon Ink to Sugar Cube Cardstock and then added a layer of VesaMark Ink which I heat embossed with the yummy smelling Peppermint Red Embossing Powder (sold separately from the kit). After I heat embossed the candy canes, I used the coordinating dies to cut out the Candy Canes. I adhered the Candy Canes together with liquid adhesive and added Green Copic Colored Holly & Red Berries to the center of the candy canes. For extra pop, I added a peppermint to the center of berries and white gel pen markings. I added the Merry Christmas Sentiment from the Clearly Crafty Seasonal Sentiments stamp set to the bottom of the panel with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink. To finish the card, I added the Frame in Frame to a Sugar Cube card base.

Happy Holly Days Card

For the Happy Holly Days Card, using the Peppermint Kisses Stencil & Die Combo set I cut several holly and berry pieces from Sugar Cube Cardstock which I colored in Greens and Reds using an assortment of Copic Markers. I arranged the Holly & Berries Die Cuts + Peppermint Embellishments to create a fun background design and adhered all the pieces with liquid adhesive. I stamped the Happy Holiday’s sentiment from the Clearly Crafty Seasonal Sentiments stamp set with VersaFine Clair Ink and used the Seasonal Sentiments coordinating die to cut out the sentiment along with a foam adhesive backing for extra dimension. To finish the card, I added the Pink & Red Striped Frame around the end of the card and added in white gel markings for extra dimension on the holly.

I absolutely love how all of my cards turned out using the Candy Candy Lane and can’t wait to mass produce more envelope seal cards! It’s so nice to get a jump start on holiday cardmaking!
