I have been on a cardmaking roll trying to get all of my Christmas cards finished in time for mailing. I made 6 cards today but it seemed to take the entire day to complete them. A lot of the time was designing them using Design Studio to cut shapes appropriate for a 5×7 card, my preferred mailing size. I have already posted the other two cards I made this morning (the ornament card from Wild Card and the Christmas mouse card from Four Legged Friends). If you would like to see these, just click on “Home” and scroll down or you can click “Christmas” under the Cards folder found in Categories (right hand menu).
This candy cane card was cut using Cricut’s Christmas Village cartridge. I cut this at 5 inches in white and then cut it again in red. I used Design Studio to hide the contour lines for the red layer so that a solid cane would cut and peek through the top white layer. I embossed the white layer with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and then tied a small red ribbon around the cane. The green patterned paper is from the Ornamental Christmas Paper Pack by the Paper Studio.
