Papertrey Ink Candy cane Christmas card

Hello everyone, and an especially warm welcome to Nancy and Joan who are new followers this week.

I've just popped on to share another card for the Festive Friday element challenge, which this week is to use candy canes. As I love candy canes, I made another card before putting the Papertrey Ink Candy Cane Christmas set away, and came up with this one:-


I cobbled together a hanging bauble by stamping on a punched circle and added a bauble hanger from a Sizzix die, all mounted onto one of the Limitless Layers Circle dies. I stamped the candy canes to make a border and used gold mirror card as a mat. The sentiments are embossed with gold embossing powder but it hasn't shown up too well in the photo. Just a short post today because we have been out all afternoon at a retirement party and youngest son is coming for tea, so I have to get my skates on!

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs
