Post-Christmas Post

Hidy Ho, crafty peeps!

I hope you all had a joyous, peaceful Christmas! I sure did.

I'm here to share a card I made for Crafter's Companion. It's Christmas-themed...but it's still "the season" so it works!

It's a very BIG nod to Clement C. Moore's timeless poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas"...better known as "The Night Before Christmas" (betcha didn't know that the real name of it was "A Visit from St. Nicholas")
I used a cute stamp from the Brambly Hedge collection. I colored it up with my Spectrum Aquas...I do love those pens. I sugar-coated the candy dreams, and card edges with sparkly crystal glitter so the candy actually looks like sugar plums (which are hard candies coated in crystallized sugar--I looked it up).

  1. Neat theme for this image Torrey! I really like the glitter on the Sugar Plums... and, no, I didn't know they were hard candies! I always pictured dried plums with a sugar glaze - LOL! Thank you for sharing your project and creativity at 613 Ave C!
