Peppermint Forest with Pretty Pink Posh

Saturday, November 12, 2022

Peppermint trees! They remind me a bit of what you would find in Peppermint Forest from Candy Land and I'm here for it. I am not a very big mint person, but my Grandmom used to make homemade ice cream with crushed up candy canes and I just loved it!

What I love about the Clay Confetti Mixes from Pretty Pink Posh is that they don't just have to be used for shaker cards; you can use them as embellishments, too. I die cut all three sizes of the trees from the Pine Trees dies and used Lumberjack Plaid Distress Ink to create an ombre look of color on the die cuts.

I added some tree trunks in Kraft and then layered them onto my background - the smallest is glued down to the background of red and sparkly white, the medium is popped up with one layer of foam adhesive (I used Therm O Web's big roll as it's a little thinner than traditional foam adhesive) and then the large is popped up with two layers of foam adhesive.

Finally, I added two candy canes from the Winter Mug die set and sprinkled peppermint candy's from the Peppermints Clay Confetti Mix. I stamped a sentiment and adhered it to th ecard as I really wanted those candy canes to be the focal point over the sentiment. I hope you enjoyed this card and let me know in the comments if you love candy canes and peppermints, too!
