Candy Cane Card
Forget store-bought greeting cards this year and create your own Candy Cane Card using polymer clay and stamp art. DIY Christmas cards are a great way to show you care. Hand them out to loved ones during the holiday season. People won't believe that you used polymer clay to construct the candy canes and will appreciate the extra time and effort spent working on this project. You can make a bunch of candy canes and once and complete your cards in a large batch. Spend your afternoon crafting away and bask in the amazing feeling you get when you spread holiday cheer to the ones you love.
