Super Sweet Candy Canes

Hi Everyone! 
 Hope you're having a great Labor Day weekend! I'm finding this a bit bittersweet--sad that this means Summer is almost over, yet excited that Fall and the holidays are just around the corner! So, today I'm posting a Candy Cane card to sweeten things up a bit!!

I love candy canes around the holidays. However, I'm not a fan of the peppermint ones. I like the Jelly Belly flavored ones. We even decorate our Christmas tree with them. Do you have a favorite kind of cane?

I love all the design elements on this card.  I think it all came together nicely! I started by coloring the Candy Canes (552H) with Copic Markers.  I used the Open Plaid Stamp (631P) to create my own pattern paper. Then I matted it with green cardstock and a decorative red border, and added a few green brads to help bring out the green in the candy canes.  The top was embossed with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder and I added a red decorative border to that as well.  Finally, the bottom of the card base was stamped with the Super Sweet Christmas Greeting (140E) and my card was complete!  

This was created for the Plaid Challenge on the DRS Designs blog. You can check out the challenge HERE and enter to win some great DRS freebies too!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll be back soon!
