Candy Cane Christmas

It's Merry Monday Challenge time and this week our hostess is Wendy and her challenge is to use candy canes on our cards.

I again went CAS with my card:

I started with a red card base and stamped a diagonal stripe down each side.  The white panel was stamped with the candy cane then over-stamped with the sentiment.  I layered that panel onto a black panel and adhered it to the card base with foam tape.

I finished off the card with some sequins and that is that!

Thanks so much for visiting.  Be sure to check out the inspiration from the rest of the fabulous design team.

Products used:

Stamps:  Scentsational Season, Border Banter (SU), Candyland Holiday (CTMH)
Ink:  Jet Black Archival, Real Red
Cardstock:  Real Red, black, white
Accessories:  Sequins

Hi Karren! This is a fantastic take on the inspiration. Love the tone on tone design on the red card base. The white panel really stands out with the black on either side. The placement of your stamps is perfect!

This card is so perfect, Karren! I love the candy cane with the sentiment on top and those stripes down the sides of your cardbase really make your card stand out! Love it! Have a great week! :)
