Candy Cane Wishes - Stampin' Up! Sweet Candy Canes

   After telling myself last week that I would start making Christmas cards using my July-Dec. mini catalog preorder I finally got around to it yesterday!  I kept it super simple with my first try with the new Sweet Candy Canes bundle and usde a clean layout from Freshly Made Sketches.

  The layout is perfect for the 2 tall candy canes!  I stamped one in Sweet Sorbet and Garden Green and then layered them with a Stylish Shape circle embossed with the sentiment and a strip of the Red Glimmer paper.  The only embellishment I used was a Sweet Sorbet baker's twine bow.

  The background panel is made using the large striped die that comes in the Candy Canes dies.  It's meant to cut a nice large diagonal piece but I decided to emboss with it instead giving a nice subtle striped pattern.  I think it works well like this for a bit of different use for the die.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
