Peppermint Posies

Peppermint Posies

Anyone out there having Candy Cane cravings yet? Our challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such Blog this week is Candy Canes!  I wanted to use my Poinsettia Die, so I started looking for some red and white striped paper that looked like a Candy Cane.

It's Mindy here, sharing my peppermint  poinsettia's with you today. The frame strips and poinsettia petals were cut using the Poinsettia die by Spellbinders and stripped Noel paper from My Minds Eye and Teresa Collins.  The Spellbinders die is not available in the Classy Cards Online store at the moment, but the Blooming Poinsettia die by PoppyStamps would look just as nice.  I shaped the flowers and petals with the Susan's Garden Tool Kit that has all the tools you need to shape and bend the paper petals and give them a natural look.

The rest of the background is decorated with a flourish die from My Favorite Things and some Ponderosa Pine Sprigs by Dee's Distinctively cut from Champagne Pearlized Metallic Card Stock. To finish my card, I took some green scrap card stock and cut the tiny holly leaf cluster from the Twig Wreath Die Set from Impression Obsession, and attached them to each corner of the card, with berries made with the Viva Decor Pearl Pen- Pearl Pink.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today, and will submit your card or two, to our challenge this week!


  1. Your card turned out lovely! The pine sprigs poking out from under the poinsettias help finish off your card beautifully, just like the little green and red corners! Just lovely, lovely.

  2. This is so gorgeous, Mindy!! The poinsettias look so beautiful!! I love the papers you used!! What a fabulous Christmas card this is!!

    I'm sorry I haven't been around for a few days - I had family visiting so I didn't get a chance to get online until today. I hope you are having a wonderful week my friend!!
