Twelve Days of Christmas Day Seven

Christmas Card Candy
Today's Project is how to make Christmas Card Candy, since the Holidays are not far off it's a great way to make fun tags or little pieces of Bling.  The card candy is another great gift for your Secret Santa, teachers for your children or stocking stuffers.  I loved making these little extra touches to put on cards or Christmas packages.  The ideas and amount you put in your bag is limitless.
Let's Get Started, here is my Card Candy.
Supplies needed for this project:
Card Stock                           Gumball Green, Pacific Point, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper
Stampin Ink                          Pacific Point, Cherry Cobbler and Versa Mark
Stampin Markers                  Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler
Stamp Sets                           Christmas Lodge, Mixed Medley and Tags til Christmas
Punches                                Scallop  Circle, 1 1/4 Scallop circle, 11/4" circle, 1" circle
                                             3/4" circle, Scallop square, 11/4" square, 1" square 
                                             and extra large tag
Embossing Powder              Cherry Cobbler
Bling                                    Dazzling Details, Dazzling Details Cherry Cobbler, gold glitter and Pearls
Wax paper, cellophane bag and stapler 

Snow Man Tag
I started by stamping on whisper white card stock using Pacific Point and then using the 13/4" punch, and then punch the scallop circle using Pacific Point card stock. Adhered them together and added Dazzling Details for some added Bling.

Santa Tag
Using my markers, I colored the Santa suit and belt in black and cherry cobbler. Then punched it out using the large and extra large punches. Glued them together, added some glue around the buckle and sprinkled on some Gold glitter. For some buttons I added small Pearls.

Square Scallop Tag
On a piece of whisper white card stock I stamped in Cherry Cobbler, Do Not Open Until Christmas and punched it out with the 3/4" punch. Then punched the next layer in Gumball Green, and punched the finally layer in Cherry Cobbler using the Scallop Punch. Glued them all together using snail and SU dimensionals to give that 3D look.

Merry Christmas Tag
I stamped Merry Christmas from the Mixed Medley stamp set in Cherry Cobbler on whisper white card stock, then punched it out using the 3/4" punch. I punched out the next layer in Gumball Green using the 1" circle punch. The final layer I punched out a scallop circle using the new 1/1/4" scallop punch from the Holiday Mini. For some added Bling I used Dazzling Details in Cherry Cobbler.

Then I cut a piece of wax paper 37/8 x 6" to adhere the tags to using glue dots. That way you can peel them off when you want to use them. Then I put the tag set in a 4" x 6" cellophane bag.

Next I made my Label Topper
  1. I cut a piece of Gumball Green 41/2"? x 4" and folded in half for the base. 
  2. Then for the next layer I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock 4 1/4" x 11/2".
  3. Next I stamped on a piece of Whisper White card stock Merry Christmas using Versa Mark and then sprinkling the new Cherry Cobbler embossing powder on it. After tapping off excess powder I used my SU Heat Tool and set the Message.
  4. Next I cut the card stock to 4" x 11/4". Next I glued all 3 pieces together and attached to my bag with a staple.
