So, since my husband starts his holidays after work today and even though we'll be sticking around here mostly, we are going to be busy so not much time to create. I'm going to schedule some posts to happen during the holidays so my blog doesn't shut down completely for the next week. :-) I'll try and check in when I can. I'm going to share a Christmas card today that I'm linking up to the current challenge over at Festive Friday. Its an element challenge this time and that element to be included is candy canes.
I have to admit, I love candy canes. They're just so yummy. :-) I didn't really have a stamp, however, that had a candy can on it so I did something I rarely do. I broke out the stickers. I had these 3D stickers from Studio 18 and there was some candy canes featured. Perfect! I also decided to use some of my never before used Christmas washi tape.
So, I put the washi tape (some is by Recollections and some by K& Company) on, alternating my widths, on a white cardstock card base. Then I cut a piece of green quilted looking paper (We R Memory Keepers, Merry & Bright) and attached my sticker. Then I matted it in white cardstock making it bigger at the bottom to stamp my sentiment (Inkadinkado, Peppermint Twist set) in Blazing Red StazOn ink. This was then matted in red. I adhered this to the card base with some foam dots. Its bright and Christmassy and I think I really like it! :-) I'm thinking I need to play with some of that Christmas washi tape some more.
***UPDATE*** I'm going to link this up at Moxie Fab World and their Holiday Cards challenge. It's a challenge to celebrate the new Holiday Cards and More magazine by PaperCrafts. :-)
Anyway, I've got one last post to do for today and that'll be it for me for a week or so. Well, except for the one or two scheduled posts, that is. :-). Have a wonderful day, everyone!!
LOVE that sticker - it's like a photograph! And I love your fun take on a candycane background - great coordination of colours! Thanks for joining us at Festive Friday, Kim!ReplyDelete
What a fun way to use the washi tape in this. I have some, though no Christmas designs, but somehow I seldom manage to use it. Fabulous! Hope you're enjoying the time off. :)ReplyDelete
