Stampin’ Up! Candy Cane Treats

A couple of months ago I pre-designed the sketch I would use for my personal Christmas cards.  They were clean and simple as that is my personality.  But low and behold…. I have yet to duplicate my personal cards I will send out in a week or so.  I bought the Chock-Full of Cheer stamp set and have fallen deep head over heals in love with the candy canes.  I cut them out with my scissors and I almost want to eat them.  LoL… What do you think?

I used the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper to add a little twinkle in front of the ebossed cirlces (that are supposed to represent snow) I have a weird imagination.  Since I’m entering this a sketch in the Paper Players Challenge #122 which requires the color silver, I used the Decorative Label Punch to cut out two pieces in the Silver Glimmer paper.  I love love love the sparkle!

I couldn’t help myself, so I also entered the card in the Sweet Shop #185 Challenge that required a sweet treat.  My favorite sweet treat in December are candy canes…. LoL.  Especially the tiny miniture one’s.  They fit in my mouth… LoL.  I have a big mouth!

Christmas is filled with bold beautiful colors like Santa suit red, or traffic light green, but I love working with non-traditional colors.  This soft green has been my favorite this month, but next month I know it will change… LoL.  It literally took me 10 minutes to create this card from scratch.  I put the last one in the mail today.  It will be a day late, but Christ is never late, and I think the recipient will enjoy it.  I grew up with my mom’s belief that the holidays start on Thanksgiving Day and end January 6th of the New Year.  I’m sticking to that theory… LoL.
