2 Cards Featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Sweetest Borders Die

What is better than candy canes during the holiday season?!?? Well maybe, hot chocolate and candy canes (yum!). 🙂 This cute candy cane border is from Stampin’ Up!’s Sweetest Borders Dieset which also features a holly leaves border and individual candy canes, peppermints and holly leaves. Lots of options with this dieset. It can be found on page 21 of the new Aug-Dec Mini Catalog. It also coordinates with the Sweetest Time Stampset.

I kept these cards simple but changed the papers and ink colors. For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base. Then cut a piece of Plaid Tidings 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ for the top panel and adhered it to the card base.

I diecut the candy cane border as well as some extra peppermints and candy canes with the Sweetest Borders Dies from Red Glitter Paper. I also diecut some candy canes and peppermints in white using the solid dies which cuts the backing. For the tiny peppermints I just added a piece of white cardstock behind it. I adhered the border to the card and trimmed off the excess.

I stamped a sentiment from the Christmas Means More stampset onto a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock with Real Red Ink. I fussycut the sentiment and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Fireside Trimmings with Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake Ink and added a red glitter candy cane. And that’s it for this card. Very easy!
