Christmas Card Candy

One of my favorite things about any Stampin' Up! demonstrator event is swapping! (Making a bunch of the same card or project and then trading with different people so you end up with a variety of samples using different stamp sets and techniques.)

This year, I managed to finish both card fronts and some 3-D items. For my 3-D swaps, I brought Christmas Card Candy.

It's called "Card Candy" because it is packaged up in a cello bag just like candy. Each package includes four stamped embellishments mounted with a pop-up glue dot on a piece of wax paper. The embellishments can be taken off the wax paper and used on a card, scrapbook page, or as a tag for a gift. Here's a couple quick cards that I made using the Christmas Card Candy. (One is 3" x 5" and the other is 3" x 3".)

Supplies: Deer Friend stamp set, Short Order Alphabet, Kraft & Whisper White cardstock, Tangerine Tango ink & cardstock, Pacific Point ink & cardstock, Riding Hood Red ink & cardstock, Kiwi Kiss ink & cardstock, 1-1-4/" & 1-3/8" Circle Punches, Scallop Circle Punch, Wax Paper, Pop-Up Glue Dots, Stapler, Write Me a Memory Font CD I; Cards also use Bella Rose DSP & White Grosgrain ribbon

Love this. I would love to see the other "card candy" that you swapped for this.
