Sweet Cards

I made it to round 3 of the SCS CAS challenge DT try-outs! The final challenge was an inspiration challenge. The image was of lots of Christmas candy, but the top left corner photo is what inspired me most. It had sugar-covered, sherbet-colored trees and gumdrops in white containers.

I actually made a couple cards – but I’ll start with the one I did enter. I started the card with the rainbow to capture those sherbet colors. I ended up doing each color separately – coloring the stripe I wanted using markers (this was easier than I thought it would be!!). I created my own candy lollipop (complete with sugar aka glitter) using a stamp from the Teeny Trees set by Waltzing Mouse. Even though the sentiment leaves it open, this will make a great birthday card!

This is first card I made for the challenge. I love it, but I wasn’t sure it was CAS enough for the competition. Again, I emulated the sugar trees. I thought about doing a rainbow tree, but decided one color would be enough. I decided on the green background because of the wall color in the photo. The tree stand is embossed so you have the same white on white as the containers in the photo.

Since I’ve decided not to make this a challenge card, I may go back and add a topper to the tree – maybe a little yellow star.

Thanks for stopping by!
