We're Like Candy Canes...

Finally, after all these weeks, I'm getting back into a groove...decorating for the holidays, playing with DRS Designs new holiday stamps and enjoying Christmas music on the radio! With all the stamping I've done over the last few days, I'm glad to say that have a new card to share with you today too! 
Since I'm just getting back to stamping, I decided to start with a few Clean and Simple cards.  I'm still taking each day with a grain of salt, praying that the All Day Morning Sickness is gone for good, but understanding that it can show its weary head at any moment.  I didn't want to get too involved with one project that would take me days and days to finish if I should get sick again.  So, for starters with this card, I used Copic Markers to color the Candy Cane image (552H).  The Candy Cane Greeting (549H) is all one, but I split it up into 3 parts to fit the layout of this card.  The white parts of the greeting were heat embossed with white embossing powder.   

I stamped the middle of the greeting, the "Candy Cane" part with SU! Real Red ink and created a tag with it.  This was all done on a green cardstock front and adhered to a red cardstock base.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed it! Make sure to check back soon to see what other cards I've recently made!

Happy Holidays To You,
