Some Card Candi Samples.....

Well, CHA is all but over now, so I can share with you a couple of the samples I made for Craftwork Cards stand over there - the emphasis was on the card candi and the sentiments.....Card Candi is available in the USA from Custom Crops

The first card is BIG - 8" x 8", the onesie was cut from New Arrival cartridge on the Cricut. The green strip is a Martha border punch

and here is a sweet 16 card. For those of you in the UK, a 16th birthday for a girl, is quite a big deal in the States, some of them have quite large Sweet Sixteen parties. I wanted to reflect this and make a special card for a 16 year old girl. Again it is BIG! The cupcake was cut from the Doodlecharms cartridge, and the 'icing' was embossed with the oldie but goodie d'vine swirls embossing folder, before being dotted with Card Candi. The base kraft card was purchased ready folded from Papermania UK. The 16 numbers were made with candi   

I stamped the word 'sweet' onto plain candi.......

This shows you the folds on the card......


  1. WOW, they are both gorgeous!!! I'm loving the sweet candi! Hugs, Brigitte

  2. Oh Wow! You have outdone yourself!! Both cards are super sweeeeet!!! You are my inspiration!
