Polar Party Card Candy

Here’s the other set of card candy that I made for swapping at convention. I’m a sucker for cutesy images and as soon as I saw the Polar Party set in the new catty I knew that I would want to make a set of card candy with it.

This is such a fun set for colouring in, using whichever medium you prefer. I used a mix of markers and inkpad with blender pen for these candies. The new Mini Brads are the perfect size to be the bobbles on the hats! Though you can’t see it too well in these pix, any “snow” has a sprinkling of Dazzling Diamonds over it.

I made 18 sets of this pack as I was also swapping with a third group that hadn’t quite filled up to the 10 that we were hoping for.

  1. I would like to make Card Candy but have never done any, how do I attach the finish candy to my backing piece to ensure the fellow swappers can take them off with ease. Thanks for sharing.

    • Hi Mariaan

      There are probably a few ways but the way that I use is to put dimensionals on the back of the candy, leaving the backing paper in position. Then apply a small dot of Tombow multipurpose glue to the backing papers and glue them to my acetate sheet. That way when the candy gets peeled from the acetate, it will hopefully leave the backing paper stuck to the acetate sheet, exposing the sticky dimensional, all ready to stick to the card.

      Hope that helps 🙂
