Floating Candy Canes Technique

Floating Candy Canes Technique

You may have recently seen the “floating” greeting card technique while browsing Pinterest. A card shared by stamper Dr. Robin caught my eye. I followed her directions and created a Christmas card to make during a recent class. My ladies so enjoyed creating this card. I started to think. What other current products could I use to show this technique and make it my own?

I landed on Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Candy Canes Bundle. Find it on pages 8-9 of Stampin’ Up!’s July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. Just a note: This suite retires January 4, 2023. Be sure to order it before it’s gone.
