This month at the Twofer Card Challenge, the keyword is SWEETS (anything containing sugar!).  Remember we are making 2 cards with two different design layouts for two different occasions.  I spent all day Sunday thinking about the prompt and trying to implement a design.  Remember I am rusty!  Finally, I decided to use Simon Says Spinning Circle die.  Please understand that I bought this die because I saw a peppermint in the die.  Now I have two candy (peppermint and lollipop) cards for Christmas and birthdays.

Design 1 Christmas:  This die is not that easy to put all the little pieces back together.  I die cut a circle (Hero Arts Infinity Circles), covered it in scortape, and assembled the little pieces.  I crumpled a small piece of vellum on each side of the peppermint to resemble wrapping.  I mounted the candies on Memory Box Christmas words 12×12 paper.  I added a line of crystal Stickles to the edge of each piece for shine!

Design 2 Birthday: For the birthday card, I die cut and assembled another spinning wheel from pink, yellow and green.  I attached a coffee stirrer to the back of the die-cut to create a lollipop; after mounting, I added a small ribbon bow and more Stickles.  The lollipop is mounted on a card base that has been stenciled with clouds (Tumbled Glass distress ink with My Favorite Things cloud stencil) and a black clear-embossed sentiment (My Favorite Things Birthday Wishes and Balloons).

    Such a sweet pair of cards, Elizabeth! Love the large peppermint candies – I keep a bowl full year-’round here for one granddaughter who loves them, so naturally I’m quite taken with this Christmas card. It’s delightful, and I love the vellum ‘wrapper!’ And your lollypop card is equally adorable! It makes a wonderful birthday card! Great cloudy background too. Thank you so much for joining us at the Twofer Challenge! Bev

    Oooh, I’d love to have either a lollipop or a peppermint candy as big as yours, Elizabeth! I love your two different designs using this die! You did a great job making the peppermints (and twists) on your Christmas card and I love that bold background!! And I think you may just start a new trend using a giant lollipop instead of a balloon on your birthday card! Amazing clouds and big sweet sediment!! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #21! I don’t think you can call yourself rusty anymore! Hugs, Darnell
