Cupcake Craftroom - Sweet Christmas!

It's a new challenge over at the Cupcake Craftroom and a new set of delicious papers. You'll need to head over to the craftroom to check out the new Contemporary Christmas papers that Mandy has designed. The challenge this month is a Sweet Christmas! I made two projects - one naughty and one nice.

Sweet Christmas can be interpreted in many ways - the first, was of course naughty with all the fabulous Christmas candy. I went in search of ribbon candy and I couldn't even believe that I couldn't find it. The next best thing is the hard candy that I remember sitting on grandma's table in the green candy dish. I used my Art Philosophy to cut the french fry box and used There She Goes newest release No Peeking! to adorn the front. What a great sweet treat idea! I used a digi sheet called Swirl It. I printed in on avalance Bazzill cardstock to give it texture. I love this print - it's so gorgeous. I also used Christmas Polkas.

The second, the nice with beatiful fruits. I used another There She Goes stamp set that I purchased, but somehow never inked it up. I totally love coloring this image, the stamp set is called Season's Greetings and it's an full of old fashioned holiday images. For this card I used three digis sheets, also printed on Avalanche Bazzill paper called - solid red, big dots, and swirl it green. Aren't the papers gorgeous and I think perfectly paired for this fabulous stamp set.

That is strange that you couldn't find ribbon candy! I noticed on the weekend that Walmart had two of their Halloween candy aisles filled with Christmas gift sets....maybe ribbon candy isn't in the first rush of candy they put out??? Hmm.
Such a cute french fry box - candy must be better for us than french fries right? and I love that wreath. Beautiful cards, both of them :)

These are super cute, Theresa! I love that French fry box and the digi paper is beautiful, and perfect for this project. I never remember to print digi paper on textured cs, but it looks so great that way. Fabulous card, too! Thank you for all the kind and generous comments you've made on my blog! You are so sweet! ~Hugs, Cheryl
