Candy Cane Christmas!

Hello there!  Today it's Erin here with you, and I decided to make a Christmas card!  My first for the year!  I'm trying to come up w/ a few designs to create for my family and friends this Christmas season.  This will be one of many!  Haha!

I recently picked up the Tim Holtz Christmas Blueprints 3, and wanted to try them out!  Oh my gosh, are those stamps cute!!!!  And the gingerbread man and house are detail oriented!  It's a Copic lover's dream to color!  :D  This candy cane was fun to color as well!  I'm still getting the hang of blending colors together, but I think it came out ok!  Tell me what you think!























This card literally took minutes to create!  Which is good for when you're making TONS of cards!!!
All the paper that you see here, minus the card base and the c/s that the candy cane was stamped on, is from the Merry Little Christmas 6" x 6" stack by Fancy Pants!  The papers inside are to die for!  They are SO fun and so merry!  LOL!  I can't wait to rip into this paper again!!!

The green paper chevrons are a mimicky tribute to the Christmas tree.
The buttons are all from my stash.
I used assorted copics to create the color scheme for the candy cane.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a great day and good luck with your handmade Christmas cards if you decide to tackle that particular holiday obstacle!

You colored that candy cane perfectly. Red is such a hard color (for me)to create depth and blending. You did great!!!!! Love this card and love the little pop of green.
