Hi all! This is an A2 sized Christmas card using Sizzix’s Wreath embossing folder (from the Birds of a Feather & Wreath set). I colored in the embossed image with Bic’s red and green fine tip permanent markers (don’t have any Copics yet :)). Then I applied Glossy Accents to the colored image and waited for it to dry. I added adhesive pearls in two sizes to the leaves. The candy canes were cut using Cricut’s Christmas Village cartridge. I flipped one of the candy canes and cut them in alternating colors. Since the Christmas Village cartridge doesn’t have any layering options, I used Design Studio to hide the contour lines of two canes to get a solid color (one white, one red). I then cut two unaltered canes so that the “holes” would cut out (one red, one white). After I adhered the layers together, I ran them through a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. I crisscrossed the canes with some adhesive and then added a double loop bow in green Christmas ribbon. I made the bow using my homemade version of a “Bow Easy”. I adhered the candy canes to the card using dimensional foam tape. The cream cardstock was also trimmed on the corners using a corner rounder punch before being adhered to the red card base.
