Candy Canes

My dear followers have probably noticed that I love to make Christmas cards :) Here is another one. I used Beccy Muir's new digi called 'Candy Canes'. If you buy her digis you'll get line art image and also pre-colored image. I love to color her digis but this time I needed a quick card so I used her colored image. I just added some stickles to the ribbon and Glossy Accents to the berries.

Sweet Christmas!
Those candies looks so delicious. I truly wish I could buy them in Estonia too. I got them several years ago in England and I want more :)
Anyway... The card is very simple. I just embossed the background, matted it to self colored red paper, added few more layers and some gems. I followed the sketch from Friday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 28. Inside of the card is similar, except I embossed the strip of paper instead of the background layer.

Go over to Beccy's Place to see more cards made with this beautiful image. And you still have time to join the monthly challenge too. All you have to do is use Beccy's digi image on your project.

Materials used:
Stamps: Beccy's Place - Candy Canes

Paper:  White  paper from my stash (matting layer colored with Promarker - 'Crimson')
Embossing folder: Crafts-Too - Dots 5x5"

Dies: Sizzix Framelits - Oval with Ornate Edge
 Sentiments: Computer generated
