Now what could be better than something SUH-WEET on a Monday morning? I am just thrilled with how this card turned out. I wanted to create a candy store window and I think I came pretty close don't you? This little stamp is "candy jar with holly" from Stamping Bella and it comes with two sentiments. I used the "sweet wishes" on the candy label. I stamped my candy jar and sentiment onto some Classic Crest CS and colored with my Copics. I matted it with some DCWV burgundy CS and put a tranparency sheet over top and then stitched around the edges to create the window look! I picked up this American Crafts DP at Michael's during my shopping spree this past Wednesday (hey, I HAD to pick up something for myself!), and I just love all the embossed papers in it. Oh, and I got the ribbon there as well. Isn't that silver edging cool? I thought it went really well with the chocolate in these papers too. I matted the DP with the same burgundy CS and then stitched around the edges and adhered to the card base of SU Chocolate Chip. I punched the edge of a coordinating peice of paper from the pack with my Martha Stewart border punch for the awning and then stitched the top edge and scored a fold a little further down so it would stick out a little over the window. SUH-WEET huh?? Ok, be sure to leave a comment below and let me know what you think of Christmas card #36. I see the light at the end of the tunnel!!! Yay! Have a great day!!
