Sweet Christmas

This was another fun little holiday card I made recently. The card measures 3.5 by 5 inches and the focal point is a peppermint candy made from baker's twine. I punched a 1-inc circle out of cardstock, then wrapped red and white twine around it to make a peppermint candy. I cut apart a clear plastic treat bag to make a candy wrapper and tied the ends with more twine. The sentiment was stamped in red and then I added glitter to the "sweet" part for extra emphasis. The white background was scored with my Martha Stewart scoreboard. I really thought this turned out cute!
