Candy Canes!

Hey gel-a-tins fans! I know it's only July and we're having record high temperatures, but it's also the time I start making my holiday cards. I have learned over the years that if I try to make them all at once right before they need to go out, it gets a bit overwhelming! I like to do a few cards each week so that I am ready when the time comes to send them out. One other thing I do when making my holiday cards is to make them simple!

I used the new gelly jr.'s santa's candy cane stamp and the cherry scented gelly powder. I love the scented embossing powder! It makes it feel like I'm embossing with candy.

Supplies Used:
santa's candy cane gelly jr. stamp
cherry scented gelly powder
versamark ink

And here's a closer look at the embossing powder in action! I love this stuff. I can't wait to try out more scents.


When do you guys start making your holiday cards? Do you have any tips to make holiday cards fun and easy?

Love the shimmer on those canes! I love making holiday cards in the summer when the temps are near 100 degrees - helps to "cool" me down working with winter papers!
