Sweet Christmas Candy

Whether we like it or not, Christmas is right around the corner. I've been trying to decide what I want to make as my Christmas cards this year and I have been having a hard time narrowing down my options. One option I came up with is this:

I really think it turned out pretty cute and it's super simple to make. I just stamped the candy piece from the Sweets for the Sweet stamp set in Real Red ink onto Whisper White card stock then punched out the shapes using a 1" circle punch. I stamped the "merry" sentiment from the Border Banter stamp set using Pool Party ink. I also punched out a strip of Real Red card stock using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch to use as my small scallop layer on the bottom. I adhered the candy pieces to the white card stock using Stampin' Dimensionals so that the candies popped off the card. To finish it off I added a few rhinestones for a little winter shine. Pretty simple. One thing I would like to try is to stamp the sentiment in Basic Gray ink  instead of the Pool Party ink. It certainly would stand out more. If I have a chance I'm going to give it a try.

As far as making your cards, my suggestion is not to wait too long before getting a jump on those Christmas cards. December is just a couple weeks away!
