Penguin Place, Sweetest Christmas, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up! 2022

Well, since I took a candy cane from the kit that Terri sent me it shorted me a candy cane for one of the cards. SO today I took another candy cane from the kit and made this card. 

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Garden Green card stock. The card was cut in half on the short side so after it was cut it measured 4-1/4" x 11".  I scored it at 5-1/2" and folded it. 

I cut part of the front off at 3-1/4". This piece will be used for the top layer.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of basic White card stock and taped it to the inside of the card.

Then I cut a 2" x 4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Santa's Express" 12" x 12" package. I taped that to the top part of the card.

A 3" x 4" piece of Basic White was cut for the front panel. I textured it using the pine branches folder in the "Wintry 3D" set. I glued that piece to the Garden Green piece I had cut off. Then this piece was taped to the front of the card. Make sure you only tape the upper part so you don't tape the card shut.

The words are from the "Penguin Place" set and were stamped using Poppy Parade ink. I die cut them with the smallest circle die in the "Layering Circles" die set and then took the next larger one and die cut a Real Red circle. I taped the circles together and added Dimensionals to the back. I set it aside.

The candy cane was added using Dimensionals on the back and I also added a Dimensional to the Real Red bow. 

The word piece was set in place and the card was done.

This is a very quick and easy layout to play with and a fun card to make. 

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's Christmas card,

This is a great fun fold card. The candy cane dsp was so fun to work with. Although I send a lot of religious Christmas cards, I did make a few with the candy canes and will have more for next year.
