Mini Party Invitations with Candy Cane Lane

Hey Stampers,

Today I want to show you how I made a set of adorable invitations for my holiday catalog launch party using the Candy Cane Lane suite. They’re mini, they’re magical…they’re too cute for words! Yep, the little critters you can make with the Cookie Cutter Christmas punch have totally stolen the show this year, so I just knew I needed them on my launch party invitations.

I started by pairing the coordinating Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper with one of the characters from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and then added matching cardstock. My card bases are cut from Whisper White thick cardstock at 4.25×8.5 inches (creating a card that’s 4.25 inches square) and scored at the midline. I cut my designer series paper to 4 inches square and sized my cardstock to provide a frame of an eighth of an inch. For this card, I used Crumb Cake cardstock and Early Espresso ink on the reindeer.

For the background on my circle, I used a stamp from the Presents and Pinecones set and Real Red ink. You could also use designer series paper here if you wanted to, but I like the added support of the Whisper White thick cardstock behind my reindeer.

I adhered the designer series paper and cardstock together before adding my stitched edge ribbon (or baker’s twine). I mounted my background to the folded cardstock base and then I used dimensionals to adhere the framelit circle in the center of my card.

I added my reindeer to the center of my circle with Fast Fuse and then stamped, punched, and adhered my sentiment for a finished card. That’s it!

Fun Fold Card Class – Christmas in July

Hey Stampers,
