Stripes on a Candy Cane
Even though it is only July, lots of card makers out there start thinking about the holidays. The current challenge on the DRS Design Blog is "Stripes" so I thought ahead to the holidays and thought those minty little peppermint sticks would serve me well.
I stamped the DRS image of "Candy Canes" with Marvy black dye ink onto Curious Metallics Cryogen white cardstock. I colored it with Copic markers and cut out with detailed scissors.
I stamped the adorable sentiment from DRS Designs, "Candy Cane Greeting" with Marvy black dye ink onto Curious Metallics Cryogen white cardstock. I colored a portion of it with Copic markers and cut with a Nestabilities die. I framed the sentiment with black cardstock.
I placed the candy canes and sentiment onto a piece of paper pierced, faux-stitched kraft that is framed with black and red cardstock. A red and white striped ribbon was added to the card as a finishing touch.
