Got Candi?

Have you seen the Candi in the store?

Were you wondering what the heck it was for?  Candi is an awesome and inexpensive embellishment that can be used on all your cards. Scrapbook pages, and mixed media projects.  

Today I have a bunch of fun cards to share with you full of yummy Candi that is sure to inspire you.

This first card uses Where's my Treat Labrador and "Trick or Treat" Candi's

This card also uses Candi's from the  Trick or Treat pack and Life is better with you!

Candi's work perfectly with scallop's and I used Regal Ruby Candi's in the scallops of this Spellbinder die.  The image is Winter Bird.  And those berries are covered in red Puffies and You're so fine Patriot Red glitter.

For this card I use Background Basics 2 and Hi There.  And the Candi's in the middle of the flowers are from the Toy Box pack.

For those of you who prefer a more vintage style, I think you'll find that the Candi's will work well for you too!  I used Vintage Treasures stamp set and Prince Charming Candi's.  The flowers are Spellbinder's dies.

This final card uses Red Candi's from the China Town pack and black Candi's from the Trick or Treat pack.  The image is from Fruit Medley.

Candi's are like large size brads but they are made from a thick-ish paper and are adhered to your project rather than poked through it.  You can use Candi Fix to adhere the Candi embellishments or  use Scrap Happy Glue like I did here.  I put a big dot of glue in each scallop and set it aside to dry to tacky while I worked on the card.

Then I used Stick Em up to stick the Candi's to the card.

I hope this post has helped to inspire you and show you some of the great things you can do with Candi's!
