Candy Cane Twist

Happy Friday!

Has it been a long week? Seems like the week after a holiday always feels a day or two longer. I'm happy to be on a regular Friday posting schedule, and today I have a card using a couple of the new DRS Designs images. I love these candy canes and judging from the workout they've been getting lately, I think the whole DT loves them!

For my card, I stamped the canes twice so I could add the bow separately. They're both colored w/ markers and a water brush and I added some sparkle on the bow w/ a clear glitter gel pen. Hard to capture but IRL it's pretty sparkly. After cutting them out, I attached them to a red panel w/ an embossed frame. On the frame I used a white chalk marker to highlight the raised embossing.

The fun greeting was also stamped twice. I punched a small tag w/ the candy cane part and attached it on top. A little red marker was added on both and the complete greeting was die cut w/ a long rectangle.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
