Card Candi


When I went to the Peterborough craft show last November I did a make and take with a Woodware Christmas tree stamp with added card candi and gems. I have always liked these stamps so I bought this one which means some of my box of card candi will get used more quickly.  I coloured the leaves with Copics and added various plain and patterned card candi to the stamp. The flowers are some of the last few pieces of First Edition Floral Pavilion and I used an EK Success flower punch, MFT pireced banner die and a sentiment from LOTV.  I used a sketch from a Facebook challenge and as I love using banners can see me using this again.

A beautiful card, the papers are really rich. I love card Candi but have never bought any so having seen how you've used it with a stamp from your stash I might get some.
