MCT 72nd Edition Sneak Peek #1

It's day 1 of My Creative Time's 72nd Edition Sneak Peeks!  I'm just loving this release, and I think you will too!  Today we are showcasing the new Sweet Candy Cane Die and Stitched Candy Cane Background sets!


For my project today, I thought it would be fun to make a card with a big mug of hot chocolate on it.  The new Sweet Candy Cane Die makes a nice big candy cane, that is the perfect size for my mug!  I had to make a pretty large card (5 1/2" x 6 3/4") to fit this.

For the mug, I used the You Deserve a Break set.  I love the little marshmallows that come in this set too.  They look so cute paired with the candy cane!  And now that I've embossed the mug with the Stitched Candy Cane Background, I want a set of these in real life!

For a finishing touch, I added a little tag, using one of the Fun Stitched Tag Dies.  I heat embossed a sentiment from Mini Christmas Greetings and added a few hearts made with dies from 4x4 Journal Die + More.  I hope you enjoy these new sets as much as we do!
