Merry Merlot with Sweet Candy Canes
Some pine branches were cut from Basic White card-stock using the largest detailed die from the Decorated Pine dies. Using the detailed dies from the Christmas Banner dies, smaller pine branches were cut from Basic White card-stock, sprigs of leaves were cut from Soft Succulent card-stock, rounded leaf twigs were cut from Brushed Gold foil and little twigs were cut from Crumb Cake card-stock. An oval label, left over from a previous project featuring the Florets Frames dies, was added to the background with Dimensionals. A little splatter using a Merry Merlot Stampin' Write Marker had been added.
The candy canes were also added with Dimensionals. A touch of added colour was partially added to die cuts and then all the die cut pieces were arranged around/under the candy canes. A triple bow was tied with Linen Thread and it was tucked under a sentiment strip that had been white heat embossed using Merry Merlot card-stock, Versamark ink, White Emboss powder and a Heat Tool. Some Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels were scattered around.
The Basic White card inner was stamped with a Merry Merlot sentiment (sentiment from the Sweet Candy Cane stamp set). A strip of Merry Merlot card-stock was adhered at the base and a Blushing Bride stamped candy cane and a left over pine branch were adhered to the left side. A C6 Basic White envelope was stamped with candy canes in Merry Merlot ink.
