Card Candy Give-away #6



Hi everyone.  Time for my next card candy.  This time I made "Christmas Candy" :)

Just LOVE my Blooming Poinsettia die from Poppy Stamps and used it A LOT last year on my cards.  For the candy, I've made two medium and four small poinsettias, with one of each size coated in red and gold glitter glue.  Each poinsettia is shaped and layered for lots of dimension.  In fact, these need to be used on cards that are NOT going through standard mail in envelopes because the flowers would be crushed.  Either boxed for mailing  ... or hand-delivered (which even better!).   :)

I'm planning on making several Christmas cards with these poinsettias and might even use a few of them on tags or as the bow for a small gift.  My tutorial on how I made these is here.  And I've also used them in a card recently ... check here to see!
____________________


And to compliment the Poinsettias, I've made a package of "Christmas Greenery".  I have included two of each flourish and two sets of pine branches (one plain, one glittered).  Picture below just shows the plain set.




I used a variety of dies (Madera Corner from Memory Box, Fanciful Flourish from Cheery Lynn, Flourish #6 from Crafty-Ann (a gift from my friend Peggy - thanks Peggy!), Pine Branches from Cheery Lynn.

As I mentioned before ... I'm still experimenting on how I secure the candy in the packages.  The above was secured using temporary adhesive and hopefully everything stays in place during shipping. :)
