Candy Cane Christmas Tags

I love making special tags for my Christmas presents. It's fun to mass produce a great design and have all my presents look good under the tree.


What also is a good idea is to keep the tags and recycle them every year. I try to do this but end up making new ones to match my decor or wrapping paper for that year.


These tags came out great. I knew when I saw the Candy Cane Builder Punch that I have going to make tags with the candy canes. And they came out beautifully.


Make a purchase from now and December 15th and I will draw a winner of these tags. You only have until the 15th so I can get them to you before Christmas. 

Measurements:
Poppy Parade Card Stock   2 x 3 1/4
Brights DSP   1 7/8 x 2 1/2
Gold Glitter  5/8 x 2
Granny Apple Green punched with Everyday Label Punch

Country Lane Suite Card #5

My last card in the series was actually a last minute add. This was a completely separate card that was made after I had made all the other cards. But since it matched I wanted to add it to the series.


This was different since I included the Buffalo Check Stamp Set (147794). I was so excited when they showed the Buffalo Check stamp set in the new Holiday Catalog. I love it. And whats cool about it is you can make it plaid.


What I did was just get out my ruler and make lines using my Cherry Cobbler marker. It was so simple and can be done with any color. (see video). It just made the card!


Measurements: 
Card Base  8 1/2 x 5 1/2
score 4 1/4
Whisper White -for plaid  2 7/8 x 5 1/2
Whisper White - for flowers  2 3/4 x 4 1/2

Country Lane Suite Card #3

I love making unique fun cards. It's not easy. It's easier to make just your standard card so it can fit in a standard envelope and your more encourage to send it. Making a fun fold card and be challenging and sometimes you can't send them in the mail. 


This card is the same size as a standard card and can fit in an envelope to be sent with no problem. I love how this card came out. I wanted to make it more muted in color and not be so bright. This way I can show you how versatile this stamp set can be. 


This would be a great card to give to someone whom is hosting Thanksgiving dinner. Or to a guest that is coming to your table and that you are thankful in celebrating with them. 


Measurements: 
Card Base  8 1/2 x 5 1/2
score  2 1/8 and 6 3/8
Whisper White inside  5 1/4 x 4

Country Lane Suite Card #2

I am not a purple person what-so-ever!
I love pink and stick with pink in all I do. However since Stampin Up updated their colors and added a few purple colors I have been a little submissive. 


Blackberry Bliss is a beautiful color. It is a deep purple that I can get used to. 
(Gorgeous Grape had me last month)
This color is very fun to use with this stamp set. 


I wanted to make a different fold for this card. I cut my paper and scored it like any other card but ended up cutting off  1 3/4 from the front to be able to show off the beautiful Country Lane Designer Series Paper (147804).
I really love how this card came out. 


Measurements:
Card Base  8 1/2 x 5 1/2
score 4 1/4 - cut off 1 3/4
Designer Series Paper  1 7/8 x 5 1/2
Galvanized Metallic Paper  2 1/2 x 5 1/2
Largest stitched square
scrap for stamping  4 1/2 x 2 1/2
