Sweet Wishes

I have another card for you today from Doodle Pantry. I had the best time making this card. Honestly, I didn't know when to stop...lol.


I used the set Gingerbread House Ants from Doodle Pantry. I started with a pre-colored version of the image. One of the things I love about Laurie's digital stamp sets is her coloring. I find myself using them more and more lately. I love using my Copics and Spectrum Noirs on her images, but when the image looks this good, why mess with perfection. I printed the image on white card stock and then I added Stickles Frosted Lace glitter glue for the snow icing. I then colored the gum drops with my Sakura clear gel pen to add a sugary look to them. And then I added glossy accents on all of the rest of the candy. This made the suckers and the skittles shine. You may have to enlarge the picture to see all the wonderful details. I used one of Laurie's designer papers printed on white card stock. I paired this with real red card stock from Stampin' Up! as the card base, as well as the just the corners behind the focal image. I printed the sentiment Sweet Wishes on white card stock and used the small and large tag punch from Stampin' Up! and then added red grosgrain ribbon. I taped a piece of red satin ribbon down the side and added the metal peppermint candy and candy cane brads (removed the tines and glued them down with glue dots). I then added sugared gum drop embellishments to finish the card off. Here is what you get in the set:

  21. Oh Goodness...loving this too. I could rip off the gum drops and eat them they look so real. I've never seen metal brads in peppermint and that was an added touch of eye candy. I've been out of town and just now catching up and wayyyy behind in making cards!
