As Promised...Card Candy

From Heidi...
I love Card Candy (aka scrapping or card embellishments). We spent a morning with several other ladies and made about 12 pieces of card candy each, plus embellished photo corners. I used 2 color families. Family A - Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Old Olive; Family B - Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Riding Hood Red, Old Olive.

Once your Card Candy is made, making a quick handmade card is simple. Especially if ahead of time, you make up several different card bases to place your Card Candy on. This is the basic card design base for Family B.
After I place a piece of the Card Candy onto the basic card...voila! Plain becomes special and all within minutes. I don't know if any of you have heard of making 30 meals ahead of time for the upcoming month, but Card Candy reminds me a little bit of that. When you're short on time these are very handy, or if you've got a scrapping project and need little embellishments, these look great, plus they're already made. Staying within a family of colors really helps because you already know that everything already coordinates together.
