Crushed Candi

Today I’m going to share a few projects featuring crushed Candi.  First up is a tent card which I made using the Boutique Floral collection.

Here is a circle card made using the Shabby Chic collection.  I’ve had this collection for a while but haven’t used it until now.

Here is another circle card using Shabby Chic – this time I have used the Candi to edge the actual card blank.

I’ve got a little tip to share relating to the circle cards which I find helps them to stand up better.  I always have the spine of the card at the top and score the inside of the card parallel to the spine at 1.5cm.  I then stick the back to the front on the 1.5cm section between the spine and the score line.  I also cut a narrow (3 or 4mm) strip from the bottom of the inside of the card so it is stabilised when standing up and won’t roll to one side.

Finally here is a canvas complete with secret message which I made using the Decadence collection for the recent shows on Create and Craft.

I used the Candi to edge the chipboard heart.  Pearlescent Candi tends to take on the appearance of leather when crushed.  Here’s a close up:

That’s all for now but I’d love to know what you think of these makes so please do leave me some comments.

      Thanks Debbie, you put the Candi upside down on an embossing mat and then crush it with an embossing tool. It’s easy to do but quite time consuming x
