Candy Cane Christmas

Candy Cane Christmas Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Mini Catalog makes it easy to create your Christmas Cards with its cute, colorful images that you won't want to cover up with a lot of layers.

Garden Green Cardstock was used for the base of my card.  A matte layer of Real Red is under the layer of Candy Cane DSP.  Some Real Red Taffeta Ribbon, and the stamped and punched image from the Tags til Christmas Stamp Set was all that I needed for today's card.

My Stamping Time saver:
If you need to make a lot of Christmas cards and don't want to sacrifice design for lack of time, start with some nice Designer Series Paper such as Candy Cane used today, or Deck the Halls also from the Holiday Mini.  They both offer such pretty designs that you don't need to add much more to your cards which will save time by eliminating the need for a lot of layers.   Or try the Holly & Jolly rub-ons, another great holiday choice.

For today's card I used the following:
Cardstock:  Garden Green #102584, Real Red #102482, Whisper White #100730
Designer Series Paper:  Candy Cane #120809 (Holiday Mini)
Ink:  Real Red #103133
Stamp Set:  Tags til Christmas #120847 wood mount, or #121169 clear mount (Holiday Mini)
Punch:  Decorative Label #120907 (Holiday Mini)
Ribbon:  Real Red 3/8" Taffeta #119763
