Hello My Fellow Crafters,
My nephew is turning 18 this week. I really can’t believe how time flies, and if I am feeling like this I can only imagine how my sister is feeling 🙂
Anyway, I wanted this card to be fun, so thinking of fun I thought of candy, and this is what I created with those thoughts in mind.
I started with some candle stamps from the Stamps of Life, and colored with Copic markers. (I made sure I stamped 18 candles..LOL)The saying was computer generated.
For the inside I used the basic Step-Ups die from Sizzix, and all of the candy and candy jars were stamped with a stamp set from Close To My Heart called Sweet as Sugar. I cut each one out by hand. All colored with Copic sketch markers, and one candy jar was filled with different colored gumballs made from a circle paper punch.
This is the side view of the card so you can see how it really is 3-dimensional. This die (Basic Step-Ups) from Sizzix is my favorite for the moment. You can do sooooo much creating with it, so many possibilities. Since it is a candy shop I wanted to create the look of an awning that you would see outside on a shop in your local town. So I used a border Framelit die and folded it around the base of the cardstock to get the look that I wanted.
I had so much fun making this card using so many different stamps and punches and dies, but I think it was worth it!

Make It A Great Day and Don’t Forget To Leave Time To Craft!
