Default card candy??

Hello!
How do you make card candy? I mean when you have them done, what do you stick them to in the package? Is it just acetate or wax paper?
Thanks

Hi tina...I stick mine to a piece of acetate (a little smaller than the bag I am putting it in) and then put them in one of those 4x6 zipper loc bags that you get in a package of 100 or so in the jewelry department. Then I put a "topper" on it,usually made out of designer series paper.

I've done both acetate and waxpaper, it depends on what I have at the time, what I'm doing and who I'm doing them for. I stick them in the zip bags you get in the jewlery section the size depends on how many I've done and the size of the candy. I've also used clear envies. I make a topper to match the candy.
Another thing I've done is Card Candy & Paper Salad one bag of card candy and one bag of paper salad (scraps of cardstock, designer paper, a few emblishments, ribbon and a few blank cards) then attach them together with one topper.
For the adhesive on the back of the candy I use glue dots or foam adhesive.

"Card candy" is handmade embellishments for cards. They are often done in coordinating sets. Here are some examples:

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...y/photo/689933

There are some open card candy swaps in the 3-D Items, Specialty Cards, and Tags forum.

I'm lucky in that where I work they use adhesive mailing labels. The leftover backing is perfect for card candy and adhesive resistant.

I'm so thrilled you have introduced me to card candy! All the examples are terrific.

But I have a real beef here... one of the lovely links had over 1800 views...40+ members added it to their Favs file... but it had all of 3, THREE! COMMENTS!!

C'mon, Ladies, we know how much we love when someone comments on our creations. If we like it enough to "Fav' it, we like it enough to leave a comment! Just my 2 cents' worth.

Yes I truly know how you feel. That is why I again have the Gallery Comment Contest going again. So far there are 9 pages! of posts that hold 10 comments per entry! It is something that should not have to be done to get people to comment, but it is FUN! There is a gal that is going to host the next one. It gets addicting posting those comments. Of course the prizes are SU stuff which also helps my sales a little bit.

Thanks for the reminder about leaving comments -- I need that little jab as much as anyone! This morning I wondered why the viewership on my card candy had suddenly jumped up and then I found this thread. Thanks to everyone who checked it out and left a comment. MaryAnn is right -- It makes your day to get a nice comment and I'm going to start taking the time to leave more myself. I've learned so much from all of you since joining SCS.

I stick my card candy to acetate, First I run it through my Zyron sticker maker using repositionable adhesive, not permanent. Thanks, Vitt for the idea of using the mailing label backing!

A few more standout examples of card candy...

Punch Art Purses

stampcrave made these clever purses from punches.

Berry Bliss
jill031070 coordinated this entire set, including the background rolled with the so swirly wheel.

Thinking Outside the Tin
Debbie Olson packaged this creative birthday set inside a clear-topped nugget tin.
