Hello, crafty friends! Irene here with my first blog post for Scrapbook Pal. Today's project features the Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers Candy Cane.
I used patterned paper from my stash for this project. I suggest any Honey Bee Stamps paper pads if you have difficulty selecting different prints. They coordinate well and are easy to mix and match.
I selected three prints and trimmed one to A2 size, one to 4.75 x 3.5, and the smallest to 4.25 x 3 inch. I centered and adhered each one with Bearly Arts Craft Glue.
I die-cut the candy cane layers in white cardstock. I inked the back layer with Catherine Pooler Cotton Candy ink, then the second layer in Rockin' Red. I glued all the layers and added highlights with a white gel pen. Next, I used Ranger Glossy Accents all over the completed candy cane and set it aside to dry.
I cut two pine branch pieces (included in the die set) in the light green card stock and one bow piece in white cardstock. I inked the bow in Rockin' Red ink, then added Stickles Glitter Glue Unicorn for some sparkle.
To assemble, I glued one candy cane directly to the card background, then added the second candy cane with foam tape. I layered the pine branches and bow over both candy canes with glue. For the sentiment, I stamped Merry Christmas from the Honey Bee Stamps Mini Messages Holiday stamp set in Hoodie Catherine Pooler Ink. I die cut the sentiment with Honey Bee Stamps Mini Messages Banners Honey Cuts.
I hope this project inspired you! Have a great week!
