Good Morning! Have you seen the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes bundle? It’s such a happy and cheerful bundle for Christmas cards, tags and treat packages! I paired it with the Sweetest Christmas designer series paper, which has a sheet of candy canes that you can cut with the candy cane dies! So perfect!! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I adhered a panel of Sweetest Christmas designer series paper to the front of a Real Red card base with liquid glue. I cut another panel with the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to a Garden Green mat and adhered the layered panel to the card front with liquid glue.
I cut a candy cane from the Sweetest Christmas designer series paper with the coordinating die from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes bundle and cut a Basic White panel wit the same die. I adhered them together with liquid glue to make it stiffer. I cut a pair of round leaf sprigs from Garden Green and a pair of fir sprigs from Pear Pizzazz using the dies from the Christmas Banner dies. I used the small branch die to cut a Crumb Cake panel. I adhered the leaf sprigs and small branch to the card with dots of liquid glue and adhered the candy cane with dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes cling stamp set in Real Red on Basic White. I cut it out with second smallest long Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots. I added red rhinestones to the tips of the Crumb Cake small branch.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the round leaf sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes stamp set in Garden Green on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment in Real Red and adhered a matted strip of DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
I didn’t use the candy cane stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Candy Canes bundle, and I’m so glad that the dies coordinate with large candy canes in the Sweetest Christmas DSP! And there are stamps and dies for candy canes that curve in both directions! The sentiments in this set are simple and perfect for both inside and outside of the card – I’ll be using these a lot!

Some things are great on their own but become epic when they are paired with something else: cereal and milk, toast and butter, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. We may be biased, but our favorite combo is our stamp sets and dies—and that’s what the Perfect Partners promotion is all about!
Stampin’ Up! created six new dies that coordinate with stamp sets in the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog and the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog. These coordinating dies will only be available during this promotion and will not be offered in any catalog. Click on the picture below to open a flyer with all the details on the dies.
These stamp sets and dies are available separately or as a bundle. By buying the bundle, you will save 10% off the retail price.
