A blog devoted to the cards I make in my tiny upstairs space. When my sister stays there, she calls it an "artist's garret". I'm not an artist, but am an enthusiastic cardmaker - hence the title "Cardmaker's Garret".

The Ultimate Christmas Candy

I made a card for a couple of current challenges.

For Addicted to CAS:

and for Christmas Cards All Year Round - Candies, Cookies, or Gingerbread.

For me, the ultimate Christmas candy or sweet thing is the candy cane.  So I made this card:

It's a pretty basic card - stamped and coloured with coloured pencils, then Glossy Accents on the Ornaments and Wink of Stella on the ribbon.  Then trimmed down with a stitched rectangle die and popped up on fun foam on a red card base.

Lots more Christmas cards to come in the next few weeks!

Stamps - Stampendous
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper - white and red cs
Size - A2
Accessories - coloured pencils, Wink of Stella, Glossy Accents, Lil Inker stitched rectangle die, fun foam
