I adore beautiful fonts and bold paper patterns – you know that about me. It was just a matter of time before this GORGEOUS sentiment from Wonderful Year would meet the GORGEOUS page from Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. Together, they are perfection. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Wonderful Year and Candy Cane Lane. How perfect are these new products together? The sentiments in Wonderful Year and beautifully bold and grand. I just love the “graffiti” style of this sentiment. While the set also includes great accents and coordinating sentiments, I left this bold greeting to fend for itself. It holds its own beautifully, don’t you think?
- Stamping the Band. The sentiment is stamped straight up and down on a long strip of Whisper White cardstock. After I stamped the sentiment, I glued it (at an angle) to a rectangle panel of candy cane striped paper. I then snipped the Whisper White paper along the edge of the striped paper. So easy! After that, I layered that panel with Real Red and glued it down to a Crumb Cake card base to finish an easy project that might look a bit complicated.
- Color Combination. I adore the colors in the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper – Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Real Red and Whisper White. Does it get more beautiful than that? This page of paper informed the colors I used on the rest of the card – thank you, Stampin’ Up! for the inspiration. If you also like this combination of colors, feel free to save this:
